Very interesting memory aid for all those who have notions of thermodynamics. The section on sustainable development brings a new vision, which some may find questionable, of the greenhouse effect.
For example, the author explains the increase in the average radiative force on Earth and therefore the performance of solar systems ...
This memory aid brings together in a synthetic and illustrated way all the definitions, equations and methods to know to apply the concepts of thermodynamics: principles of thermodynamics and fundamental relations; properties of pure substances and mixtures; thermodynamic cycles (Rankine, Carnot, Hirn, Ericsson, Stirling, Joule, Beau de Rochas, Diesel, Linde, Claude, cogeneration cycles); combustion. A final chapter is devoted to environmental impacts (quantification of the greenhouse effect, life cycle analysis). Numerous tables of data on the thermodynamic properties of bodies are grouped together in the appendix. This checklist is an essential working tool for engineers and technicians in energy and mechanics, as well as students and student engineers in the field.
This memory aid brings together in a synthetic and illustrated way all the definitions, equations and methods to know to apply the concepts of thermodynamics. The last part is particularly devoted to all the environmental applications in full development ecobalances, analysis of the life cycle of the products, etc… Target audience: Mechanical engineers and technicians Students, engineering students.
Francis Meunier The author is the holder of the Cnam chair of refrigeration physics, and director of the French Institute of industrial refrigeration (IFFI)
