Thermodynamics refers to the study of relationship between energy and entropy, which deals with heat and work. Thermodynamics is considered to be one of the most important parts of our daily life. Whether you are travelling in any vehicle, sitting comfortably in your air-conditioned room, watching television etc, you will notice the applications of thermodynamics almost everywhere directly or indirectly. It is a combination of theories that correlate macroscopic properties that we can measure, such as likely temperature, volume, and pressure, to energy and its capability to deliver work.

Thermodynamics is essentially the study of the internal motions of many body systems. Virtually all substances which we encounter in everyday life are many body systems of some type or other (e.g., solids, liquids, gases, and light). Of course, therefore, thermodynamics is a discipline with an exceptionally wide range of applicability. Thermodynamics is certainly the most ubiquitous subfield of Physics outside Physics Departments. Engineers, Chemists, and Material Scientists do not study relatively or particle physics, but thermodynamics is an integral, and very important, part of their degree courses.

This book entitled Advanced Thermodynamics Engineering aims to present a thorough, concise and accurate discussion of fundamentals and principles of thermodynamics. Focused on practical uses for this continuously evolving field of science, this book is packed with practical cases and theories on thermodynamic properties and other useful information.

This book will be of valued for Engineers, Chemists, and Material Scientists as well as researchers who need to understand and apply the engineering physics of thermodynamic concepts and advances.
