- Oxford University Press, UK 2005; US$ 123.99
This text presents a concise and thorough introduction to the main concepts and practical applications of thermodynamics and kinetics in materials science. It is designed with two types of uses in mind: firstly for one or two semester university course for mid- to - upper level undergraduate or first year graduate students in a materials-science-oriented... more...
- Springer 2009; US$ 129.00
Examines the geometrical and thermodynamical properties of mechanical behavior of metals and many polymeric and paste-like materials which are indispensable for developing a rational theory of viscoplasticity. This book is suitable for researchers as well as PhD students in the fields of material science and continuum mechanics. more...
- Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 67.50
This book places thermodynamics on a system-theoretic foundation so as to harmonize it with classical mechanics. Using the highest standards of exposition and rigor, the authors develop a novel formulation of thermodynamics that can be viewed as a moderate-sized system theory as compared to statistical thermodynamics. This middle-ground theory involves... more...
- Wiley 2008; US$ 155.00
Imparts the similarities and differences between ratified and condensed matter, classical and quantum systems as well as real and ideal gases. Presents the quasi-thermodynamic theory of gas-liquid interface and its application for density profile calculation within the van der Waals theory of surface tension. Uses inductive logic to lead readers from... more...
- Springer 2010; US$ 119.00
This text combines an old look at thermodynamics with a new foundation. A New Perspective on Thermodynamics can be considered a new edition of P.G. Tait's book, which profoundly impacted generations of thermodynamicists. The book will present a historical perspective which unravels the current presentation of thermodynamics found in standard textbooks,... more...

Aufbauend auf den Grundlagen der Thermodynamik und idealisierten Motorprozessen behandelt das Standardwerk aktuelle null-, quasi-, ein- und mehrdimensionale Methoden zur Analyse und Simulation des realen Motorprozesses. Dabei werden Fragen des Wärmeübergangs, der Verbrennung, der Schadstoffbildung und des Ladungswechsels erörtert und Arbeitsprozesse... more...

Temperature is vital to the health and welfare of all living beings, and Earth's temperature varies considerably from place to place. Early humans could only live in warm areas such as the tropics. Although modern humans have the technology to keep their houses and offices warm even in cold environments, the growth and development of civilization... more...

The comprehension of the laws which govern any material system is greatly facilitated by considering the energy and entropy of the system in various states of which it is capable. As in the case of simply mechanics systems, the performance of mechanical work, the function which expresses the capability of the system for this kind of action also plays... more...
- Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 85.00
This book provide an interwoven development of classical and statistical thermodynamic principles from a modern perspective. more...
- Springer 2011; US$ 159.00
Maximum Dissipation: Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics and its Geometric Structure explores the thermodynamics of non-equilibrium processes in materials. The book develops a general technique created in order to construct nonlinear evolution equations describing non-equilibrium processes, while also developing a geometric context for non-equilibrium thermodynamics.... more...
