Heat Transfer in Single and Multiphase Systems by Greg F. Naterer

By Greg F. Naterer

Generally revised and punctiliously up-to-date, this renowned textual content de-emphasizes excessive point arithmetic in want of potent, exact modeling. Real-world examples magnify the idea and exhibit the best way to use derived equations to version actual difficulties. workouts that parallel the examples construct readers' self assurance and get ready them to confront the extra complicated events they come across as execs.

Non-equilibrium Thermodynamics for Engineers by S Kjelstrup, D Bedeaux, E Johannessen, J Gross

By S Kjelstrup, D Bedeaux, E Johannessen, J Gross

The ebook describes in an easy and useful approach what non-equilibrium thermodynamics is and the way it may well upload to engineering fields. It explains the way to describe right equations of shipping, extra particular than used to this point, and the way to exploit them to appreciate the waste of strength assets in critical unit approaches within the undefined. It introduces the entropy stability as an extra equation to exploit, to create constant thermodynamic versions, and a scientific technique for minimizing strength losses which are hooked up with shipping of warmth, mass, cost, momentum and chemical reactions.

Thermodynamics of chaotic systems: An introduction by Christian Beck

By Christian Beck

This ebook bargains with some of the thermodynamic recommendations used for the research of nonlinear dynamical structures. an important invariants used to signify chaotic platforms are brought in a fashion that stresses the interconnections with thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. one of the topics handled are probabilistic points of chaotic dynamics, the symbolic dynamics approach, details measures, the utmost entropy precept, common thermodynamic family, spin platforms, fractals and multifractals, growth price and data loss, the topological strain, move operator equipment, repellers and break out. The extra complicated chapters care for the thermodynamic formalism for increasing maps, thermodynamic research of chaotic structures with a number of extensive parameters, and section transitions in nonlinear dynamics.

Combustion science and engineering by Kalyan Annamalai

By Kalyan Annamalai

Scholars embarking on their stories in chemical, mechanical, aerospace, power, and environmental engineering will face consistently altering combustion difficulties, comparable to toxins keep watch over and effort potency, all through their careers. forthcoming those demanding situations calls for a deep familiarity with the elemental concept, arithmetic, and actual thoughts of combustion. in keeping with greater than 20 years of educating adventure, Combustion technology and Engineering lays the mandatory foundation whereas utilizing an illustrative, hands-on process.

Taking a down-to-earth standpoint, the ebook avoids heavy arithmetic within the first seven chapters and in bankruptcy 17 (pollutants formation and destruction), yet considers molecular strategies and delves into engineering information. It starts with an summary of thermodynamics; fundamentals of thermochemistry and chemical equilibrium; descriptions of reliable, liquid, and gaseous fuels; chemical kinetics and mass move; and functions of idea to useful platforms. starting in bankruptcy eight, the authors offer an in depth therapy of differential varieties of conservation equations; analyses of gasoline combustion together with jet combustion and boundary layer difficulties; ignition; flame propagation; interactive and workforce combustion; pollutant formation and keep an eye on; and turbulent combustion.

In addition, this textbook comprises ample examples, illustrations, and routines, in addition to spreadsheet software program in combustion to be had for obtain. This software program permits scholars to determine the examples present in the textual content. Combustion technology and Engineering imparts the talents and foundational wisdom useful for college kids to effectively strategy and resolve new problems.
