Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach (Mcgraw-Hill Series in Mechanical Engineering) by Yunus A. Cengel

Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach (Mcgraw-Hill Series in Mechanical Engineering) by Yunus A. Cengel
McGraw-Hill Science/Engineering/Math; 5 edition | June 3, 2005 | English | ISBN: 0072884959 | 936 pages | PDF | 21 MB

The worldwide bestseller Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach brings further refinement to an approach that emphasizes a physical understanding of the fundamental concepts of thermodynamics. The authors offer an engineering textbook that "talks directly to tomorrow's engineers in a simple yet precise manner, that encourages creative thinking, and is read by the students with interest and enthusiasm."
The Vitreous State: Thermodynamics, Structure, Rheology, and Crystallization, 2nd edition (repost)

The Vitreous State: Thermodynamics, Structure, Rheology, and Crystallization, 2nd edition by Ivan S. Gutzow and Jürn W.P. Schmelzer
English | 2013 | ISBN-10: 3642346324 | 580 pages | PDF | 8,5 MB

This book summarizes the experimental evidence and modern classical and theoretical approaches in understanding the vitreous state, from structural problems, over equilibrium and non-equilibrium thermodynamics, to statistical physics. Glasses, and especially silicate glasses, are only the best known representatives of this particular physical state of matter.
Practical Plant Failure Analysis: A Guide to Understanding Machinery Deterioration and Improving Equipment Reliability (repost)

Practical Plant Failure Analysis: A Guide to Understanding Machinery Deterioration and Improving Equipment Reliability by Neville W. Sachs
English | 2006 | ISBN: 0849333768 | 288 pages | PDF | 9,6 MB

Component failures result from a combination of factors involving materials science, mechanics, thermodynamics, corrosion, and tribology. With the right guidance, you don’t have to be an authority in all of these areas to become skilled at diagnosing and preventing failures.
Grain Boundary Migration in Metals: Thermodynamics, Kinetics, Applications, Second Edition

Grain Boundary Migration in Metals: Thermodynamics, Kinetics, Applications, Second Edition (Materials Science & Technology, Book 9) by Gunter Gottstein and Lasar S. Shvindlerman
English | 2009 | ISBN: 142005435X | 711 pages | PDF | 23,5 MB

A major goal of materials science is to create new engineering materials and optimize their cost and performance. Understanding how adjacent materials behave at their borders is an essential part of this process.
