Very Good/Fair. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall Hardback This is an introductory text on the principles and applications of engineering thermodynamics and elementary heat transfer. With the exception of the chapter on heat transmission, the material in the book is derived directly from Mechanical Engineering Thermodynamics, by the same author. As in the longer book, thermodynamics is treated as a logical formulation of facts known from experience, with emphasis on the generality of the subject. The purpose of the book is to help the reader towards understanding the subject, rather than to confer facility in solving type problems. Nevertheless, since experience shows that understanding must be built up from a foundation of familiarity with small details, the derivations and basic applications are explained in considerable detail, and many worked examples are given. In the chapter on heat transmission the author has tried to combine enough explanation to give a reasonable physical picture, with enough formulas and data to permit some approach to realistic problems. A single short chapter, written with this intention, must be sharply limited in scope, but there is sufficient material for the usual short treatment. Illustrated. Owners name on inside cover. Some wear and tear to D/J. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions etc. )
