Introduction to Engineering Thermodynamics, 2nd Edition
March 2006, ©2007
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 sciences 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 student-friendly format. The authors guide students, from readily measured thermodynamic properties through basic concepts like internal energy, entropy, and the first and second laws, up through brief coverage of psychrometrics, power cycles, and an introduction to heat transfer.
1. Some Introductory Comments.
2. Some Concepts and Definitions.
3. Properties of a Pure Substance.
4. Work and Heat.
5. The First Law of Thermodynamics.
6. First-Law Analysis for a Control Volume.
7. The Second Law of Thermodynamics.
9. Second-Law Analysis for a Control Volume.
10. Gas Mixtures.
11. Power and Refrigeration Systems.
12. Chemical Reactions.
13. Introduction to Heat Transfer.

- Value priced! About 200 pgs shorter than other texts on the market, and about $25 less. Offers the quality and reliability of Sonntag/Borgnakke/Vanwylen at an attractive price.
- New chapter on Chemical Reactions. A new chapter on chemical reactions, focused on fuels and combustion processes, and including an introduction to chemical equilibrium, has been included to help make the text more appropriate for a two semester sequence.
- Revised coverage of heat transfer. A chapter on heat transfer is included as an introduction to this core topic. In 2e this chapter has been rewritten with a stronger emphasis on applications, particularly those involving cooling of electronic devices.
- Improved learning and study tools. Each chapter includes Chapter Summaries, Key Concepts and Formulas, and Concept Problems. New Concept Checkpoints throughout the chapter allow students to test themselves on how well they understand concepts just presented.
- How-to Sections at the end of most chapters help answer commonly asked questions and offer students an opportunity to develop skills needed for success in the course, such as How To Determine the State of a Substance (chapter 3)
- Examples, illustrations, and homework problems have all been expanded and revised. A large number of new problems are included, especially introductory-level problems.
- Reorganized discussion of Entropy in chapter 8. Discussion of calculating entropy for various thermodynamic models and its use in thermodynamic processes appears before the behavior of entropy in irreversible processes is discussed.
- Tables of Thermodynamic and Transport Properties (CATT2) software available as a download from the student companion site.
- ThermoNet online tutorials, with accompanying graphics, animations, and video clips. Free with purchase of a new text. Available online with the registration code inside text.
• Real-world problems, at the end of each chapter, are carefully correlated to the subject matter.
• A solid foundation in fundamental concepts and the first law are provided before introducing the second law and its applications.
• SI and English units. The text is arranged entirely in SI units, but an English-unit supplement with problems and thermodynamic tables is also included.
• Heat Transfer. A final chapter covers heat transfer, with a strong emphasis on conduction.
• Computer-Aided Thermodynamic Tables Software by Claus Borgnakke. CATT software, included on a disk in the back of the text, provides a comprehensive collection of thermodynamic tables and transportation properties in an easily accessible format. The mouse driven program offers graphing and printing capabilities.
