Applied Thermodynamics for Engineering Technologists

Applied thermodynamics for engineering technologists 5th edition. This book aims to give students of engineering a thorough grounding in the subject of thermodynamics and the design of thermal plants. The book is comprehensive in its coverage without sacrificing the necessary theoretical rig our emphasis throughout is on the applications of the theory to real processes and plant.

The book is designed as a complete course text for degree courses in mechanical, aeronautical, chemical, environmental, and energy engineering, engineering science, and combined studies courses in which thermodynamics and related topics are an important part of the curriculum. Students on technician diploma and certificate courses in engineering will also find the book suitable although the coverage is more extensive than they might require.
