OVERVIEW OF MACROSCOPIC THERMAL SCIENCES
101030510308001011121OVERVIEW OF MACROSCOPIC THERMAL SCIENCESThis chapter provides a concise description of the basic concepts and theories underlying classical thermodynamics and heat transfer. Different approaches exist in presenting the subject of thermodynamics. Most engineering textbooks first introduce temperature, then discuss energy, work, and heat, and define entropy afterward. Callen developed an axiomatic structure using a simple set of abstract postulates to combine the physical information that is included in the law…
