#### Solving Direct and Inverse Heat Conduction Problems

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; Not AvailableThis book is devoted to the concept of simple and inverse heat conduction problems. The process of solving direct problems is based on the tempera ture determination when initial and boundary conditions are known, while the solving of inverse problems is based on the search for boundary condi tions when temperature properties are known, provided... more...

#### Time and Thermodynamics

Infobase Publishing 2007; US$ 42.00Temperature 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...

#### Statistical Thermodynamics and Microscale Thermophysics

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 88.00This book provide an interwoven development of classical and statistical thermodynamic principles from a modern perspective. more...

#### 1000 Solved Problems in Modern Physics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; Not AvailableBased on the material covered in US and UK undergraduate physics courses, this volume provides a variety of physics problems useful for assignments or exams. A brief summary introduces the formulas in each chapter, and solutions are provided at the end. more...

#### Advanced Computational Methods and Experiments in Heat Transfer XI

WIT Press 2010; US$ 268.00Research 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...

#### Four Laws That Drive the Universe

OUP Oxford 2010; US$ 7.99The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal, and from the unfurling of a leaf to the course of life itself - everything is directed and constrained by four simple laws. Peter Atkins' powerful introduction explains what the laws are and how they work. more...

#### Discover Entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 23.00This 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...

#### Transient Heat Transfer

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 49.95Making use of the dimensionless Biot number, this volume presents a new, direct computational method for transient heat transfer. The approach allows readers to make transient heat transfer calculations without using finite difference programs. more...

#### Commentary on the Principles of Thermodynamics by Pierre Duhem

Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 209.00This volume offers translations of early work of Pierre Duhem, illustrating his interest in the rigorous development of physical theory for which he is famous. Benefits scholars of history and philosophy of science, and the development of physical chemistry. more...

#### Introductory Statistical Thermodynamics

Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 69.95Introductory 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...
