Fundamentals of Thermodynamics, 8th EditionDecember 2012, ©2013

Now in its eighth edition, Fundamentals of Thermodynamics continues to offer a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of classical thermodynamics, while retaining an engineering perspective. With concise, applicationsoriented discussion of topics and selftest problems, this text encourages students to monitor their own learning. The eighth edition is updated with additional examples and endofchapter problems to increase student comprehension. In addition, Learning Objectives have been added to the beginning of each chapter.
This classic text provides a solid foundation for subsequent studies in fields such as fluid mechanics, heat transfer and statistical thermodynamics, and prepares students to effectively apply thermodynamics in the practice of engineering.
