- Springer New York 2009; US$ 169.00
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...
- 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...
- Springer Vienna 2009; US$ 209.00
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...
- Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 179.00
This 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...
- 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...
- Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 82.99
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...
