Excelent for a 2nd or 3rd year engineering student,

This review is from: Engineering Thermodynamics: Work and Heat Transfer (Paperback)
Engineering Thermodynamics work and heat transfer is a concise, extremely well laid out text. The first section reviews the basics of thermodynamics, The second section examines the theory for fluids in engineering applications, such as combustion, power cycles and properties of mixed fluids. Section three studies the transfer of work from fluids, in plant like compressors, reciprocating internal combustion engines and jet propulsion, Finally the fourth section covers various forms of heat transfer, conduction, convection, and radiation. The content makes it an Ideal basis for a second or third year thermodynamics course as part of an engineering degree. Also it is not the kind of book you will need for one course and never use again. I have found it indispensible for three of my engineering degree couses already, in thermodynamics, internal combustion engines and Heat tranfer.
