Transform how your students learn thermodynamics with the informal presentation that makes abstract concepts easier to understand in Principles of Engineering Thermodynamics, 2nd Edition, by John R. Reisel. This edition clearly presents fundamental principles and applications while challenging students to explore the impact of contributing parameters on the performance of devices or processes. For example, students examine how exit pressure from a steam turbine impacts the turbine's power production. With this approach students better understand how they will apply thermodynamics in their future careers. Students also strengthen their intuitive understanding of how different concepts of thermodynamics interrelate. In addition, readers learn to create computer-based models of devices, processes and cycles as well as use internet-based programs and computer apps to find thermodynamic data, exactly like practicing engineers. WebAssign customizable digital resources help your students further master key concepts.
