Applied Thermodynamics for Engineers
by William D. Ennis
Publisher: D. Van Nostrand Company 1915
Number of pages: 560
This book takes a middle ground between those textbooks which replace all theory by empiricism and that other class of treatises which are too apt to ignore the engineering significance of their vocabulary of differential equations. We here aim to present ideal operations, to show how they are modified in practice, to amplify underlying principles, and to stop when the further application of those principles becomes a matter of machine design.
