Basic concepts and applications are discussed in complete detail with attention to generality and logical consistency, removing ambiguities and limitations of traditional presentations. Heat is defined rigorously, and it is not used to define entropy! Introduction to the Physics of Fluids and Solids. Courier CorporationJul 12, – Science – pages.

GyftopoulosGian Paolo Beretta Limited preview – Basic concepts and applications are discussed in complete detail with attention to generality and logical consistency, removing ambiguities and limitations of traditional presentations.

The treatment resolves conceptual loopholes and logical deficiencies which are present in traditional treatments of thermodynamics, and it is rigorous because it builds up a set of unambiguous definitions of all the basic concepts needed in the exposition system, property, state; nonequilibrium, equilibrium, and stable equilibrium state; process, weight process, reversible process; thermal reservoir. The text provides material for undergraduate and graduate courses.

Basic concepts and applications are discussed in complete detail with attention to generality and logical At the advanced level, the unique non-traditional order of exposition of the basic concepts and principles system, property, state, process, first law, energy, equilibrium, stable equilibrium, second law, entropy allows rigorous general definitions of energy and entropy valid for all systems large and small, few- and many- particles and all states stable and non-stable equilibrium, as well as non-equilibrium.

Elements of Statistical Thermodynamics: Thermodynamics in a nutshell but rigorous! GyftopoulosGian Paolo Beretta. It adopts the statement of second law introduced by Hatsopoulos and Keenan ini. Worked-out examples and end-of-chapter problems illustrate the use of energy and entropy balances as powerful analytical keystones in physics and engineering.
