Statistical Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach covers in a
practical, readily understandable manner the underlying meaning of
entropy, temperature and other thermodynamic concepts, the
foundations of quantum mechanics, and the physical basis of gas,
liquid and solid phase properties. It presents simply the
relationship between macroscopic and microscopic thermodynamics. In
addition, the molecular basis of transport phenomena and chemical
kinetics are explored, as are basic concepts in spectroscopy.
Modern computational tools for solving thermodynamic problems are
explored, and the student is assured that he or she will gain
knowledge of practical usefulness. This essential text is suitable
for mechanical or aerospace engineering graduate students who have
a strong background in engineering thermodynamics, those entering
advanced fields such as combustion, high temperature gas dynamics,
environmental sciences, or materials processing, and those who wish
to build a background for understanding advanced experimental
diagnostic techniques in these or similar fields.
