Description
Summary: Preface * Structure * Notation * State of equilibrium * Availability and exergy * Pinch technology * Rational efficiency * Efficiency of an internally reversible heat engine when producing maximum work output * Relationship between properties * Equations of state * Liquefaction of gases * Thermodynamic properties of ideal gases and ideal gas mixtures of constant composition * Thermodynamics of combustion * Chemistry of combustion * Chemical equilibrium and dissociation * Effect of dissociation on combustion parameters * Chemical kinetics * Combustion and flames * Irreversible thermodynamics * Fuel cells
Introduces basic concepts that apply over a range of engineering thermodymanics technologies. Considers approaches to cycles, enabling their irreversibility to be taken into account. Gives a detailed study of combustion to show how the chemical energy in a fuel is converted into thermal energy and emissions; analyses fuel cells to provide an understanding of the direct conversion of chemical energy to electrical power; studies property relationships to enable more sophisticated analyses to be made of both high and low temperature plant and irreversible thermodynamics, which contain principles that might hold a key to new ways of efficiently converting energy to power
