  • Advanced Computational Methods and Experiments in Heat Transfer XIby B. Sunden; U. Mander; C.A. Brebbia

    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...

  • Is There a Temperature?by Tamas Sandor Biro

    Springer 2011; US$ 199.00

    Temperature and heat, entropy and order or disorder are key classical concepts of physics. These are challenged by searching matter under extreme conditions, such as high (relativistic) energy, strong acceleration or gravitation, or unusual complexity due to long range correlations. In our quest for quark matter all these conditions might occur simultaneously.... more...

  • Entropy and the Time Evolution of Macroscopic Systemsby Walter T. Grandy

    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...

  • Discover Entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamicsby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 77.00

    This is a sequel to the author's book entitled "Entropy Demystified". The aim is essentially the same as that of the previous book by the author: to present Entropy and the Second Law as simple, meaningful and comprehensible concepts. In addition, this book presents a series of experiments which are designed to help the reader discover... more...

  • Commonly Asked Questions in Thermodynamicsby Marc J. Assael; William A. Wakeham; Anthony R. H. Goodwin; Stefan Will; Michael Stamatoudis

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 43.95

    Have you ever had a question that keeps persisting and for which you cannot find a clear answer? Is the question seemingly so ?simple? that the problem is glossed over in most resources, or skipped entirely? CRC Press/Taylor and Francis is pleased to introduce Commonly Asked Questions in Thermodynamics , the first in a new series of books that... more...

  • Commentary on the Principles of Thermodynamics by Pierre Duhemby Paul Needham

    Springer 2011; US$ 179.00

    Pierre Duhem (1861-1916) held the chair of theoretical physics at Bordeaux from 1894 to his death. He established a reputation in both the history and philosophy of science as well as in science itself (physics and physical chemistry). Much of his work in the first two areas has been translated into English, but little of his technical scientific work.... more...

  • Introductory Statistical Thermodynamicsby Nils Dalarsson; Mariana Dalarsson; Leonardo Golubovic

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 69.95

    Introductory Statistical Thermodynamics is a text for an introductory one-semester course in statistical thermodynamics for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in physics and engineering. The book offers a high level of detail in derivations of all equations and results. This information is necessary for students to grasp difficult concepts... more...

  • An Introduction to Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamicsby Robert H. Swendsen

    Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 79.99

    This text presents the two complementary aspects of thermal physics as an integrated theory of the properties of matter. Conceptual understanding is promoted by thorough development of basic concepts. In contrast to many texts, statistical mechanics, including discussion of the required probability theory, is presented first. This provides a statistical... more...

  • Thermodynamikby Klaus Lucas

    Springer 2006; US$ 49.95

    Das Buch folgt dem von der traditionellen Gliederung abweichenden Konzept, den Stoff methodisch zu strukturieren. Die Bilanzen fur Materiemenge, Energie und Entropie werden prozessunabhC$ngig formuliert und exemplarisch auf die Analyse sehr unterschiedlicher Beispiele der energie- und stoffumwandelnden Prozesstechnik angewandt; sie zeigen den Weg zu... more...

  • Miniature Joule-Thomson Cryocoolingby Ben-Zion Maytal; John M. Pfotenhauer

    Springer 2012; US$ 229.00

    The principles behind Joule-Thomson cryocooling provide a demonstration of real gas thermodynamics. For those with interest in thermodynamics and cryocooling, these ideas will be compelling and inspiring. The Joule-Thomson effect and cryocooling completely rest upon the extent of real gas deviating from the ideal one. The book provides a wide coverage... more...
