Reviews

"This thorough text examines the concept and its applications, beginning with the basics of thermodynamics in which all energy-related variables are based and continuing into relevant aspects of industrial development, psychrometric processes, heat pump systems, thermal energy storage and drying processes and systems, and renewable energy systems.. This is the second edition, expanded and covering both theoretical and practical aspects."--ProtoView.com, February 2014
