#### Introduction to Thermodynamics and Kinetic Theory of Matter

Wiley 2008; US$ 160.00Imparts 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...

#### A New Perspective on Thermodynamics

Springer 2010; US$ 149.00This 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...

#### Thermodynamik der Verbrennungskraftmaschine (Der Fahrzeugantrieb) (German Edition)

Springer 2009; US$ 199.00Aufbauend 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...

#### Solving Direct and Inverse Heat Conduction Problems

Springer 2010; US$ 239.00Presents a solution for direct and inverse heat conduction problems. This work discusses the theoretical basis for the heat transfer process in the first part. It presents selected theoretical and numerical problems in the form of exercises with their subsequent solutions in the second part. more...

#### Transport Phenomena in Capillary-Porous Structures and Heat Pipes

Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 220.00Two-phase nano- and micro-thermal control device research is now proving relevant to a growing range of modern applications, including those in cryogenics, thermal engineering, MEMS, and aerospace engineering. Until now, researchers have lacked a definitive resource that provides a complete review of micro- and nano-scale evaporative heat and mass... more...

#### Thermodynamics

Oxford Book Co. 2008; US$ 50.00The 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...

#### 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...

#### Handbook for Heat Exchangers and Tube Banks design

Springer 2010; US$ 159.00When a heating fluid transfers heat to a heated fluid through a wall, if the fluids are in parallel flow or counter flow, it is possible to compute exactly both the transferred heat and the temperatures of the fluids via well-known equations. This holds true both for design and verification computation. However, the motion of the fluids is never in... more...

#### Statistical Thermodynamics and Microscale Thermophysics

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 85.00This book provide an interwoven development of classical and statistical thermodynamic principles from a modern perspective. more...

#### Thermodynamics of Fluids Under Flow

Springer 2010; US$ 149.00This is the second edition of the book "Thermodynamics of Fluids under Flow," which was published in 2000 and has now been corrected, expanded and updated. This is a companion book to our other title Extended irreversible thermodynamics (D. Jou, J. Casas-Vazquez and G. Lebon, Springer, 4th edition 2010), and of the textbook Understanding... more...
