- Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 84.95
In this compelling, and important book, John Schmitz brings order to the world of chaos that surrounds us. The Second Law of Life refers to the second law of thermodynamics, entropy, which is an omnipresent force that quietly and crucially determines every aspect of our society, culture and daily lives. Unless we come to understand entropy, future... more...

This comprehensive monograph is the first to treat the thermomechanics of viscoplasticity. It is intended for researchers and students in the fields of material science and continuum mechanics and is especially useful to the emergent field of biomechanics. more...
- Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 77.00
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...

Mass transfer phenomena can now be observed in many fields of industry. In particular, separation processes, which make up the vast majority of industrial production procedures, are governed by the physics of mass transfer, and their design and optimization depends heavily on knowledge in this field. This didactic approach to the principles and modeling... more...
- Wiley 2008; US$ 160.00
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...

Aufbauend auf die Zusammenstellung relevanter Grundlagen der Thermodynamik und die Darstellung idealisierter Motorprozesse werden aktuelle null-, quasi-, ein- und mehrdimensionale Methoden zur Analyse und Simulation des realen Motorprozesses besprochen, wobei Fragen des Wärmeübergangs, der Verbrennung, der Schadstoffbildung und des Ladungswechsels... 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...
- Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 88.00
This book provide an interwoven development of classical and statistical thermodynamic principles from a modern perspective. more...
- WIT Press 2010; US$ 268.00
Research and development of computational methods for solving and understanding heat transfer problems continue to be important because heat transfer topics are commonly of a complex nature and different mechanisms such as heat conduction, convection, turbulence, thermal radiation and phase change may occur simultaneously. Typically, applications are... more...
- Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 64.99
This book is based on the premise that the entropy concept, a fundamental element of probability theory as logic, governs all of thermal physics, both equilibrium and nonequilibrium. The variational algorithm of J. Willard Gibbs, dating from the 19th Century and extended considerably over the following 100 years, is shown to be the governing feature... more...
