Maintaining the substance that made Introduction to the Thermodynamic of Materials a perennial best seller for decades, this Sixth Edition is updated to reflect the broadening field of materials science and engineering. The new edition is reorganized into three major sections to align the book for practical coursework, with the first (Thermodynamic Principles) and second (Phase Equilibria) sections aimed at use in a one semester undergraduate course. The third section (Reactions and Transformations) can be used in other courses of the curriculum that deal with oxidation, energy, and phase transformations. The book is updated to include the role of work terms other than PV work (e.g., magnetic work) along with their attendant aspects of entropy, Maxwell equations, and the role of such applied fields on phase diagrams. There is also an increased emphasis on the thermodynamics of phase transformations and the Sixth Edition features an entirely new chapter 15 that links specific thermodynamic applications to the study of phase transformations. The book also features more than 50 new end of chapter problems and more than 50 new figures.

Engineeering thermodynamics is the study of and practical application of the successful conversion of heat energy into work energy, a transormation fundamental to the existence of our modern industrial society. The thermodynamic conversion process lies behind the operation of the internal combustion engine and the generation of power. Transport systems - such as the motor cars, aircraft and railway trains - can only function because of this process; it also makes possible the generation of the electricity, supplying energy for heating, lighting and computing, and many other processes essential to the modern world. Basic Engineering Thermodynamics, first published in 1960, provides a comprehensive introduction to the principles and application of the subject. The fifth edition has been extensively revised and updated with a new chapter on basic psychrometry and additional material and re-drawn illustration throughout. This is a core text for BTEC HNC/D and degree courses in mechanical engineering.

Turbomachinery is a challenging and diverse field, with applications for professionals and students in many subsets of the mechanical engineering discipline, including fluid mechanics, combustion and heat transfer, dynamics and vibrations, as well as structural mechanics and materials engineering. Originally published more than 40 years ago, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Turbomachinery is the leading turbomachinery textbook. Used as a core text in senior undergraduate and graduate level courses this book will also appeal to professional engineers in the aerospace, global power, oil & gas and other industries who are involved in the design and operation of turbomachines. For this new edition, author S. Larry Dixon is joined by Cesare Hall from the University of Cambridge, whose diverse background of teaching, research and work experience in the area of turbomachines is well suited to the task of reorganizing and updating this classic text. Provides the most comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of turbomachinery of any text in the field Content has been reorganized to more closely match how instructors currently teach the course, with coverage of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics moved to the front of the book Includes new design studies of several turbomachines, applying the theories developed in the book
