Engineering Thermodynamics — Work Heat and Transfer (Second Edition/SI Units) - G. F. C. Rogers; Y. R. Mathews;

Longmans, 1968, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper frayed with heavy wear at the spine ends and corners. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.

2nd edition. [First Edition: 1957] From the cover: “This book is intended for engineering students and covers the fundamentals up to Honours Degree standard. It is hoped that this edition of Engineering Thermodynamics in SI Units will play its part in furthering the change from British to metric units which is to take place during the next few years. The first edition of the book, in British units, will remain in print as long as required. While preparing this edition, the opportunity has been taken to bring the material up to date although the general plan of the book has remained unchanged. The chapter on Properties of Fluids has been rewritten to accommodate changes in the approach to the definition of temperature scales and the adoption of the triple point as the datum state for steam tables. The treatment of regenerative cycles has been revised. Material has been added to the chapters on General Thermo-dynamic Relations and Combustion Processes to include an introduction to the concept of availability and the closely associated use of the Gibbs function and other chemical thermo-dynamic data. The section of calorific values has been brought into line with the new British Standard. Additional material is included on liquid metals as heat transfer media, and on boiling. A descriptive chapter has been added on ‘Direct Conversion’, which it is hoped will encourage some students to pursue the subject further as a postgraduate study. Owing to the widespread use of computers, numerical methods of dealing with unsteady heat flow problems have been substituted for the less flexible graphical methods described in the previous edition. Examples and problems have been worked out using data contained in the Second Edition of Thermodynamic and Transport Properties of Fluids (SI units) (Basil Blackwell, 1967).”
