Engineering Thermodynamics – R.K. Rajput – 3rd Edition


Intended as a textbook for applied or engineering thermodynamics, or as a for practicing , the uses extensive in-text, solved examples and computer simulations to cover the basic of thermodynamics.

Pure substances, the first and second laws, gases, psychrometrics, the vapor, gas and refrigeration cycles, heat , , , fuels, and more are presented in detail and enhanced with practical applications. This version presents the material using SI and has ample material on SI conversion, steam tables, and a Mollier diagram. The accompanying CD includes a fully functional version of QuickField (widely used in ), as well as numerous demonstrations and simulations with MATLAB, and other third party software.
