Kaufui Vincent Wong grew up in Malaysia and came to the United States in 1973. As a youngster, he wished to be an engineer because of his passion for mathematics, which was accomplished when he obtained the bachelor’s degree with honors in mechanical engineering at the University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 1973. He obtained his PhD at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, in 1976. His wish to teach engineering students from all over the world came true when he became a faculty member at the University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida, in 1979. In 2000, he published his first book for engineering students. In 2003, he published his second textbook for graduate engineers. He has authored and coauthored over 160 technical papers. In the past decade, he has broadened his teachings by using mass media, including YouTube. He accomplished his personal goal of visiting all seven continents in 2001 when he completed his trip to Antarctica.
This second edition of a bestseller presents a comprehensive treatment of engineering thermodynamics from the classical aspect, providing a sound basis for all engineering students to prepare them to use thermodynamics in professional practice. It includes a new chapter on thermodynamic property relations and every chapter has updated, expanded problem sets. The author has developed a unique, practical guide to classical thermodynamics. In an accessible, practical, and cohesive approach, the author exposes readers to the "big picture" of thermodynamics, and its streamlined presentation allows glimpses into important concepts and methods rarely offered by texts at this level.
Concepts, Definitions, and the Laws of Thermodynamics. Properties of Pure Substances. Mass Conservation and the First Law of Thermodynamics. Second Law of Thermodynamics and Entropy. Exergy (Availability) Analysis. Vapor Power Systems. Thermodynamic Property Relations. Principles of Energy (Heat) Transfer. Appendices. Answers to Problems. Index.
