Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics sets the standard for teaching students how to be effective problem solvers. The ninth edition continues its tradition of setting the standard for teaching students how to be effective problem solvers. Now in its eighth edition, this market-leading text emphasizes the authors collective teaching expertise as well as the signature methodologies that have taught entire generations of engineers worldwide.
Integrated throughout the text are real-world applications that emphasise the relevance of thermodynamics principles to some of the most critical problems and issues of today, including a wealth of coverage of topics related to energy and the environment, biomedical/bioengineering, and emerging technologies.
New to the ninth edition includes: updated coverage of contemporary applications for thermodynamics in the fields of biomedicine and bioengineering, along with coverage of energy and the environment and emerging technologies, new solved examples added to relevant topics within several core chapters, a wealth of new and revised homework problems (over 30%), refreshing the extensive selection of problems in every chapter and organised to help you develop engineering skills in three modes: conceptual, skill building, and design/open ended problems, and over 600 new “Checking Understanding” exercises built into in each of the core chapters
- Strong pedagogical structure to enhance student learning—starting each chapter with learning outcomes followed by both in-text and formal examples and a self-quiz for immediate feedback on understanding. Each chapter ends with a chapter summary to review the topics and prepare for examinations.
- Flexible coverage of application areas in chapters 8-14, including power and refrigeration cycles, psychometrics, and combustion. Instructors can choose various levels of coverage ranging from short introductions to in-depth studies.
- Class-tested and proven approaches on key thermodynamics concepts, including: the second law of thermodynamics, featuring the entropy balance (Chap. 6), and exergy analysis (Chaps. 7 and 13).
