Thermodynamics : an engineering approach. 8th edn. (Print copy) by Thermodynamics, An Engineering Approach, eighth edition, covers the basic principles of thermodynamics while presenting a wealth of real-world engineering examples so students get a feel for how thermodynamics is applied in engineering practice. This text helps students develop an intuitive understanding by emphasizing the physics and physical arguments. Cengel and Boles explore the various facets of thermodynamics through careful explanations of concepts and use of numerous practical examples and figures, having students develop necessary skills to bridge the gap between knowledge and the confidence to properly apply their knowledge.
Thermodynamics is now presented in full, four-color design. The illustrations and photographs are now more realistic and offer increased understanding to the student. Some of the figures and photographs in the text are intended to serve as a means of emphasizing key concepts that would otherwise go unnoticed.
This edition includes over 500 new problems and a significant number of the existing problems are modified. An important change is the update of the R-134a tables to make property values consistent with those from the latest version of EES (Engineering Equasion Solver). All the solved examples and end-of-chapter problems dealing with R-134a are modified to reflect this change.

Applied thermodynamics. (Print copy) by This text covers the application of thermodynamics by way of a simple, elegant and practical presentation that ties theory logically and rigorously with the design and application aspects of I.C. engines, combustion thermodynamics, gas power cycles, vapour power cycles, reciprocating compressors, refrigeration and psychometrics. The text discusses the performance and working of thermodynamic cycles such as gas power cycles and vapour power cycles. The applications of these cycles to the study and analysis of I.C. engines, steam engines, gas turbines and power plants are highlighted. The book also presents a thorough analysis of the working principles of I.C. engines, reciprocating compressors, refrigeration, and air conditioning systems. The book helps students to develop an intuitive understanding of the application of thermodynamics by guiding them through a systematic problem-solving methodology. The contents of the book have been designed to meet the requirements of diploma, AMIE, undergraduate and postgraduate students of mechanical engineering, biotechnology, chemical engineering, automobile engineering, industrial and production engineering. KEY FEATURES: Focuses on problem-solving techniques. Provides an excellent selection of more than 300 graded and solved examples to foster understanding of the theory. Gives over 100 chapter-end problems with answers. Summarizes important equations at the end of each chapter.

Engineering thermodynamics. 3rd edn (Print copy) by Intended as a textbook for "applied" or engineering thermodynamics, or as a reference for practicing engineers, the book uses extensive in-text, solved examples and computer simulations to cover the basic properties of thermodynamics. Pure substances, the first and second laws, gases, psychrometrics, the vapor, gas and refrigeration cycles, heat transfer, compressible flow, chemical reactions, fuels, and more are presented in detail and enhanced with practical applications. This version presents the material using SI Units and has ample material on SI conversion, steam tables, and a Mollier diagram. A CD-ROM, included with the print version of the text, includes a fully functional version of QuickField (widely used in industry), as well as numerous demonstrations and simulations with MATLAB, and other third party software.
