THERMODYNAMICS FOR ENGINEERS focuses on outcome-based learning, which has been identified by ABET as an essential aspect of engineering curricula. Learning outcomes are listed at the start of each chapter and identified as completed at relevant places in the text, followed by a summary at the end of each chapter. Authors Kenneth Kroos and Merle Potter bring decades of teaching experience to a clear writing style that describes key concepts without straying from the course. The language of thermodynamics is explained in careful detail so that students can quickly understand the concepts presented and the analysis techniques used. Extensive use of practical examples demonstrates the proper set-up and solution of problems. These skills are then further developed using a wide variety of homework problems. Some homework problems are presented with an increased degree of complexity to allow the instructor to challenge the more accomplished. THERMODYNAMICS FOR ENGINEERS focuses on clearly outlining the role of thermodynamics in real engineering. It takes students through clear explanations of concepts, followed by mathematical techniques of analysis and applications of these in solving engineering problems.
