The focus of Thermodynamics: Concepts and Applications is on traditional thermodynamics topics, but structurally the book introduces the thermal-fluid sciences. Chapter 2 includes essentially all material related to thermodynamic properties clearly showing the hierarchy of thermodynamic state relationships. Element conservation is considered in Chapter 3 as a way of expressing conservation of mass. Constant-pressure and volume combustion are considered in Chapter 5 - Energy Conservation. Chemical and phase equilibria are treated as a consequence of the 2nd law in Chapter 6. 2nd law topics are introduced hierarchically in one chapter, important structure for a beginner. The book is designed for the instructor to select topics and combine them with material from other chapters seamlessly. Pedagogical devices include: learning objectives, chapter overviews and summaries, historical perspectives, and numerous examples, questions and problems and lavish illustrations. Students are encouraged to use the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) online properties database.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Thermodynamics can, perhaps, sometimes appear a bit of an old, somewhat involved and not very lively subject. This book demonstrates magnificently that it is a hot topic of great relevance to all aspects of technology. In a truly Herculean effort, Stephen Turns has produced a book that seems to make it impossible not to become first curious and then very well versed in the applications of thermodynamics to engineering. I think the book is ideal for any undergraduate course. It can be studied at various levels and will be an excellent source of motivation and inspiration for students.' Times
