About this product
- DescriptionThis book differs from other thermodynamics texts in its objective, which is to provide engineers with the concepts, tools, and experience needed to solve practical real-world energy problems. The presentation integrates computer tools (such as EES) with thermodynamic concepts to allow engineering students and practising engineers to solve problems they would otherwise t be able to solve. The use of examples, solved and explained in detail, and supported with property diagrams that are drawn to scale, is ubiquitous in this textbook. The examples are t trivial, drill problems, but rather complex and timely real-world problems that are of interest by themselves. As with the presentation, the solutions to these examples are complete and do t skip steps. Similarly the book includes numerous end-of-chapter problems, both typeset and online. Most of these problems are more detailed than those found in other thermodynamics textbooks. The supplements include complete solutions to all exercises, software downloads, and additional content on selected topics. These are available on the book's website www.cambridge.org/KleinandNellis.
- Author BiographyGregory Nellis is the Elmer R. and Janet A. Kaiser Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and is a member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) and the Cryogenic Society of America (CSA). Professor Nellis carries out applied research that is related to energy systems with a focus on refrigeration technology and he has published more than 40 journal papers. Professor Nellis' focus has been on graduate and undergraduate education, and he has received the Polygon, Pi Tau Sigma and Woodburn awards for excellence in teaching as well as the Boom Award for excellence in cryogenic research. He is the co-author of Heat Transfer (2009) with Sanford Klein.
