Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach – Yunus Çengel, Michael Boles – 5th Edition


The worldwide bestseller Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach brings further refinement to an approach that emphasizes a understanding of the fundamental concepts of thermodynamics. The authors offer an engineering textbook that “talks directly to tomorrow’s engineers in a simple yet precise manner, that encourages creative thinking, and is read by the with interest and enthusiasm”.

The new edition features an early introduction of the first law of thermodynamics, separate coverage of closed systems analysis, coverage of volume mass and energy analysis, and revised coverage of compressible flow. Over 300 comprehensive problems have been added to this physically intuitive text, many of which come from industrial applications.

The media package for this text is extensive, giving users a large variety of supplemental resources to choose from. A Student Resources DVD is packaged with each new copy of the text and contains the popular Engineering Equation Solver (EES) software, Experiments, and an Interactive tutorial.
