The first law of thermodynamics gives the quantiative relations between
the internal energy of a system and the quantities of heat and work that
the system exchange with surroundings. It express the conservation of
The first law of thermodynamics is true, but not enough ! Why ?
Many thermodynamic processes which don’t violate the 1st
but don’t happen in nature !
We knew that the concepts of mechanical work and energy play an
important role in studying mechanical phenomena.
Concerning to thermal phenomena, there exits a new form of energy
Heat can be transferred from one to other systems
For a system with volume held constant, the effect of heat is to
change the temparature of a system.
Thermodynamics is an essential subject taught to all science and engineering students. If the coverage of this subject is restricted to theoretical analysis, student will resort to memorising the facts in order to pass the examination. Therefore, this book is set out with the aim to present this subject from an angle of demonstration of how these laws are used in practical situation.This book is designed for the virtual reader in mind, it is concise and easy to read, yet it presents all the basic laws of thermodynamics in a simplistic and straightforward manner....
Chapter 6 - The second law of thermodynamics. In this chapter, the thermal energy reservoirs, reversible and irreversible processes, heat engines, refrigerators, and heat pumps are introduced first. Various statements of the second law are followed by a discussion of perpetualmotion machines and the thermodynamic temperature scale. The Carnot cycle is introduced next, and the Carnot principles are discussed. Finally, the idealized Carnot heat engines, refrigerators, and heat pumps are examined.
Chapter 6 - The second law of thermodynamics. Introduce the second law of thermodynamics, which asserts that processes occur in a certain direction and that energy has quality as well as quantity; identify valid processes as those that satisfy both the first and second laws of thermodynamics; introduce the concepts of thermal energy reservoirs, reversible and irreversible processes, heat engines, refrigerators, and heat pumps;...
Combustion involves change in the chemical state of a substance from a fuel state to a
product state via a chemical reaction accompanied by release of heat energy. Design or
performance evaluation of equipment also requires knowledge of the rate of change of
state. This rate is governed by the laws of thermodynamics and by the empirical sciences
of heat and mass transfer, chemical kinetics and fluid dynamics. Theoretical treatment of
combustion requires integrated knowledge of these subjects and strong mathematical and

Progress of thermodynamics has been stimulated by the fi ndings of a variety of fi elds
of science and technology. In the nineteenth century, studies on engineering problems,
effi ciency of thermal machines, lead to the discovery of the second law of thermodynamics.
Following development of statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics
allowed us to understand thermodynamics on the basis of the properties of constituent
The constitutive law of plastic deformation expresses the effects of material
behavior and properties for stress analysis in the design of manufacturing technology
and product service behavior, for materials testing, and for the maintenance
of structural and machine components.
The book represents the state of the art, but the editors do not rule out other
concepts of constitutive laws. There are many different facets of the same problem
and as many answers; the right one is the one that gives the most practical solution,
the one that best serves the specific problem....
