  • Challenges to The Second Law of Thermodynamicsby Vladislav Capek; Daniel Sheehan

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 269.00

    The second law of thermodynamics is considered one of the central laws of science, engineering and technology. For over a century it has been assumed to be inviolable by the scientific community. Over the last 10-20 years, however, more than two dozen challenges to it have appeared in the physical literature - more than during any other period in its... more...

  • Fundamentals of Equilibrium and Steady-State Thermodynamicsby N.W. Tschoegl

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 305.00

    This book summarizes the salient features of both equilibrium and steady-state thermodynamic theory under a uniform postulatory viewpoint. The emphasis is upon the formal aspects and logical structure of thermodynamic theory, allowing it to emerge as a coherent whole, unfettered by much of those details which - albeit indispensable in practical applications... more...

  • Continuum Thermomechanicsby Alfredo Bermúdez de Castro

    Springer 2006; US$ 99.00

    Aims to deduce, from the first principles, the partial differential equations governing the thermodynamic processes undergone by continuum media under forces and heat. This work includes the classical models for linear vibrations of thermoelastic solids and also for wave propagation in fluids. more...

  • Entropy and Energyby Ingo Müller; Wolf Weiss

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 99.00

    Provides an introduction to thermodynamics and the concept of entropy and energy. This book gives instructive examples from elementary thermodynamics and physico-chemistry, and extrapolates the notion to non-standard thermodynamic subjects like shape memory, dissipation of the earth's atmosphere, and sociology. more...

  • Nonequilibrium Thermodynamicsby Yasar Demirel

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 275.00

    Natural phenomena consist of simultaneously occurring transport processes and chemical reactions. These processes may interact with each other and lead to instabilities, fluctuations, and evolutionary systems. This book explores the unifying role of thermodynamics in natural phenomena. Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics, Second Edition analyzes the transport... more...

  • Entropy Demystifiedby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 119.00

    In this unique book, Arieh Ben-Naim invites the reader to experience the joy of appreciating something which has eluded understanding for many years — entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The book has a two-pronged message: first, that the Second Law is not “infinitely incomprehensible” as commonly stated in textbooks of thermodynamics... more...

  • Transport Phenomena in Plasmaby James P. Hartnett ?; Alexander Fridman; Young I. Cho; George A. Greene; Avram Bar-Cohen

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 230.00

    Advances in Heat Transfer fills the information gap between regularly scheduled journals and university-level textbooks by providing wide-ranging and in-depth review articles. Put simply, this book is essential reading for all mechanical, chemical and industrial engineers working in the field of heat transfer in graduate schools or industry. The... more...

  • Molecular Thermodynamics and Transport Phenomenaby Michael Peters

    McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 165.00

    Many newly developing fields of science and engineering, including nanotechnology, protein engineering, microfluidics, etc., require an in-depth molecular understanding and description of matter. Molecular Thermodynamics and Transport Phenomena: Complexities of Scales in Space and Time provides a rigorous molecular and statistical mechanical basis... more...

  • The Art of Cryogenicsby Guglielmo Ventura; Lara Risegari

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 255.00

    Cryogenics is the study of low temperature interactions - temperatures well below those existing in the natural universe. The book covers a large spectrum of experimental cases, including basic vacuum techniques, indispensable in cryogenics. Guidance in solving experimental problems and numerous numerical examples are given, as are examples of the... more...
