Reviews

Dr. S. V. Kota Reddy, Academic President, Manipal ★★★★★

This book is very good for second/third year Mechanical Engineering students. The solutions for the various problems are excellent. The Mathcad software is used very efficiently and intelligently for solving the problems.. I am using this book for my research work sponsored by ASHRAE.

Description

This book contains Solutions to Problems in Basic Thermodynamics, as per the syllabus of B.E. courses in Visweswaraya Technological University (VTU), Karnataka, India (and other Universities as well).

In this book, problems are solved using three popular software, viz. “Mathcad”, “Engineering Equation Solver (EES)” and “The Expert System on Thermodynamics (TEST)”. Some ‘free software’ are also explained.

An introductory chapter gives a brief overview of the software used.

The book is presented in four Parts, and this is Part-I:

Part-I contains an Introduction to software used, information and worked-out problems on the topics of Units, Pressure, Temperature, and examples of extensive use of software to find properties of Pure substances and to perform related calculations.
