Reseña del editor
This is a comprehensive, best selling introduction to the basics of engineering thermodynamics. Requiring only college level physics and calculus, this popular book includes a realistic art program to give more realism to engineering devices and systems. A tested and proven problem solving methodology encourages readers to think systematically and develop an orderly approach to problem solving. It provides readers with a state of the art introduction to second law analysis. Design/open ended problems provide readers with brief design experiences that offer them opportunities to apply constraints and consider alternatives.
A proven pedagogical framework gives students the support they need!
Now with an even stronger pedagogical framework, Moran & Shapiros Fifth Edition of Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics presents a comprehensive treatment of engineering thermodynamics. The text helps you develop a deeper and more complete understanding of the subject.
Heres how Moran & Shapiros approach works:
- New Thermodynamics in the News items tie reports from the popular press, such as fuel cells, to concepts covered in the text.
- A strong problem-solving methodology encourages readers to develop an orderly approach to problem solving, think systematically, and reduce typical errors.
- End-of-chapter materials builds problem-solving skills in three modes: Conceptual (Exercises: Things Engineers Think About); Skill building (Problems: Developing Engineering Skills); and Exploration (Design and Open-Ended Problems: Exploring Engineering Practice).
- Online study guide, including key concepts summaries and additional homework problems with answers and selected solutions, offer tools to test your understanding of chapter material.
- Design/Open-Ended Problems provide brief design experiences that provide opportunities to think creatively, apply constraints, and consider alternatives.
- Thorough development of the second law, featuring the entropy production concept and energy analysis, provide a state-of-the-art introduction to second law analysis.
- IT: Interactive Thermodynamics software (purchased separately) features property data calculation, systems modeling, and what if calculation capabilities, so you can explore more realistic thermodynamic system behavior.
- ThermoNet tutorials for basic engineering concepts feature animations, pop-up quizzes, and additional worked examples. Available through the books website.

There seems to be a lot of parallelism between the two books which seems more than coincidental. Interesting.
Padding seems to be an inevitable consequence of marketing. For self-study older, cheaper versions of both texts are readily available ($5). Unfortunateley, the poor students don't have that option.
This text presents the principles of Thermodynamics clearly with no missing steps in the derivations and explanations, actually pretty unique for a text book. There are no maddening gaps in the development. Examples are clear and illustrative. I didn't try many problems. My objective was to create a concise, recallable structure of Thermodynamics in my mind.
I personally don't like the term "Exergy." I find "Availability" a lot easier to think about and recall. Also, all those e's for energy, exergy, and environment are a nuisance to write clearly. The chapter on Exergy (Availability) is excellent but left one gap in my mind as to the meaning of exergy change. Is it the max attainable work between two states? If yes, why?
I wish the authors would write a textbook on E&M. Talk about finding a clear, understandable, explanation for a subject, whew!
Written in calculus terms.
Thermo is hard but it makes more sense when you dig into a book that builds on the calc you'd know instead of trying to dumb it down and make it more about memorising 100 bulls*** equations.
This one will stay on the shelf.
