Now in its seventh edition, Fundamentals of Thermodynamics continues to offer a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of classical thermodynamics, while retaining an engineering perspective. With concise, applications-oriented discussion of topics and self-test problems the text encourages students to monitor their own comprehension. The seventh edition is updated with additional examples, homework problems, and illustrations to increase student understanding.
The text lays the groundwork for subsequent studies in fields such as fluid mechanics, heat transfer and statistical thermodynamics, and prepares students to effectively apply thermodynamics in the practice of engineering.
When I took thermodynamics, I only used course notes from my professor as my actual text book. I only used this text for the reference tables in the back. The reference tables are incredible and probably unparalleled by any other text out there. I have heard complaints trying to use the textbook as a textbook, and I can’t comment on that. I can say if you are doing thermos in industry the most important thing you are going to need are the reference tables. This text book gets five stars for that.
