Since its publication almost a decade ago, Adrian Bejan's Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics has established itself as the definitive modern treatment of this challenging subject. Now the Second Edition brings this important work fully up to date with current analyses and practices, and explores uncharted territory along the promising frontier of contemporary research. Grounded in the axiomatic formulation and Gibbsian analytical structure of classical thermodynamics, this revised volume offers an incisive examination of the history, concepts, and language of thermodynamics. Readers will find a clear review of the first and second laws of thermodynamics, along with enhanced material on exergy analysis methods, entropy generation minimization, and related design applications. The Second Edition takes an in-depth look at the latest developments in the field in areas such as power generation, solar energy, low-temperature refrigeration, air conditioning, and thermal design. Bridging the gap between physics and biology, this book, for the first time, provides a fascinating introduction to the constructal theory of macroscopic organization in nature, extending thermodynamics into the realm of naturally organized systems. Geometric shape and structure are deduced from a single principle of thermodynamic optimization. Complete with original problems, worked-out examples, exceptional graphics, and hundreds of references throughout, Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics, Second Edition is the ideal cutting-edge reference for today's professional engineers and researchers as well as a superb resource for advanced engineering students. Praise for the First Edition: "Demonstrates that engineering thermodynamics is still an active research field . . . will be valuable to all those seeking a deeper understanding of thermodynamic systems." —ASLIB Book List "Strikes a balance between the latest developments in the field and the 'classical' approach to the study of thermodynamics." —Engineering Societies Library Incomparable coverage of engineering thermodynamics—in a brand-new, up-to-date edition . . .The first edition of Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics broke fresh ground with its engaging treatment of key topics in thermal engineering. Now, building on the success of its predecessor, this Second Edition balances a detailed examination of the history, concepts, and language of classical thermodynamics with state-of-the-art coverage of the latest developments in analysis and practice. In addition to cutting-edge material on contemporary research areas such as entropy generation minimization and the constructal theory of organization in nature, readers of the Second Edition will find: A solid review of the first and second laws of thermodynamics, with an emphasis on problem-solving Separate chapters devoted to single-phase systems, multiphase systems, chemically reactive systems, exergy analysis, thermodynamic optimization, and irreversible thermodynamics Thermodynamics applied to specific areas, including power generation, solar energy, refrigeration, air conditioning, and thermal design More problems and worked-out examples throughout the text High-quality original graphics, plus hundreds of classical and contemporary references Moving effortlessly between analysis and essay, this revised edition of Adrian Bejan's trailblazing work will inspire a new generation of researchers and students in all areas of engineering.

Design course on the universal principle of configurations in nature and engineering-the constructal law Design with Constructal Theory offers a revolutionary new approach based on physics for understanding and predicting the designs that arise in nature and engineering, from the tree and the forest to the cooling of electronics, urban design, decontamination, and vascular smart materials. This book shows how you can use the method of constructal theory to design human-made systems in order to reduce trial and error and increase the system performance. First developed in the late 1990s, constructal theory holds that flow architecture arises from the natural evolutionary tendency to generate greater flow access in time and in flow configurations that are free to morph. It unites flow systems with solid mechanical structures, which are viewed as systems for the flow of stresses. Constructal theory unites nature with engineering, and helps us generate novel designs across the board, from high-density packages to vascular materials with new functionalities (self-healing, self-cooling), and from tree-shaped heat exchangers to svelte fluid-flow and solid structures. Design with Constructal Theory starts with basic principles and then shows how these principles are applied to understanding and designing increasingly complex systems. Problems and exercises at the end of each chapter give you an opportunity to use constructal theory to solve actual design problems. This book is based on a design course developed by the two authors for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students at Duke University and other universities all over the world. With the authors' expert guidance, students and professionals in mechanical, civil, environmental, chemical, aerospace, and biomedical engineering will understand natural systems, and then practice design as science, by relying on constructal strategies to pursue and discover novel and effective designs.
