Introduction to Engineering Thermodynamics – Richard E. Sonntag, Claus Borgnakke – 2nd Edition


A focused look at the principles and applications of thermodynamics Offering a concise, highly focused approach, Sonntag and Borgnakke’s Introduction to Engineering Thermodynamics, 2nd Edition is ideally suited for a one-semester course or the first course in a thermal-fluid sequence. Based on their highly successful text, Fundamentals of Thermodynamics, Introduction to Engineering Thermodynamics, 2nd Edition covers both fundamental principles and practical applications in a more -friendly format.

The authors guide students, from readily measured thermodynamic properties through basic concepts like internal , , and the first and second laws, up through brief coverage of psychrometrics, power cycles, and an introduction to combustion and . Highlights of the Second Edition New chapter on . Revised coverage of heat transfer, with a stronger emphasis on applications.

New Concept Checkpoints, which allow students to test themselves on how well they understand concepts just presented. How-to sections at the end of most chapters, which answer commonly asked questions. Revised examples, illustrations, and homework , as well as a large number of new problems. ThermoNet online tutorials, with accompanying graphics, animations, and video clips. Available online with the registration code in this text. -Aided Thermodynamic Tables 2 Software (CATT2) by Claus Borgnakke, provides automated table lookup and interpolation of property data for a wide variety of substances. Available for download on the text’s website.
