Mere Thermodynamics by Don S. Lemons

By Don S. Lemons

Presenting classical thermodynamics as a concise and discrete entire, Mere Thermodynamics is an ideal software for educating a notoriously tough subject.

Accomplished instructor Don S. Lemons introduces the actual theory's ideas and techniques and makes use of them to resolve difficulties from a wide diversity of physics. He illustrates, at a steady speed, not just the basics of the topic but in addition complicated themes resembling the connection among the second one legislation of thermodynamics and entropy. He highlights the highbrow constitution and background of the self-discipline and explores the logical results of every of the well-known 3 legislation. Lemons explains and develops the 1st legislation and their corollaries, the equipment and purposes of thermodynamics, and the 3rd legislation, in addition to non-fluid variables, equilibrium and balance, and two-phase systems.

The publication positive factors end-of-chapter perform difficulties, an appendix of labored difficulties, a word list of phrases, and an annotated bibliography.

Reiseführer Physikalische Chemie: Entdecke die fantastische by Thorsten Daubenfeld,Dietmar Zenker,Stephan Meyer

By Thorsten Daubenfeld,Dietmar Zenker,Stephan Meyer

Die Autoren nehmen den Leser in diesem Buch mit auf eine Reise zur 'Insel der Energie' und zur 'Insel der Phasen', auf der sie die Welt der Chemischen Thermodynamik auf eine etwas andere Weise vermitteln möchten. Am Ende wartet ein ganz anderer Blick auf die Physikalische Chemie auf den Leser - und hoffentlich auch ein leichterer Überblick über die Zusammenhänge in diesem Fach. Inhaltlich konzentriert sich das Buch dabei auf die Chemische Thermodynamik (v. a. Hauptsätze der Thermodynamik, Thermochemie, Phasengleichgewichte).

Zylinderdruckbasierte Regelkonzepte für Sonderbrennverfahren by Nikolaus Held

By Nikolaus Held

Nikolaus Held stellt in dieser Studie ausgewählte Sonderbrennverfahren und deren Einspritzstrategien für heutige Pkw-Dieselmotoren vor. Stellvertretend entwirft der Autor bei der Partikelfilterregeneration zunächst eine Regelung der Verbrennungslage und -form. Hierdurch kann die Verbrennungsstabilität signifikant gesteigert werden, was once Versuche unterstreichen. Im Anschluss untersucht Held eine modellbasierte Verbrennungsregelung. Auf foundation des Zylinderdrucks modelliert er mithilfe eines halbempirischen Ansatzes die Temperatur vor der Turbine und quantifiziert den Einfluss der angelagerten Nacheinspritzung auf den Mitteldruck und die Abgastemperatur. Neben der schnellen Reaktionsfähigkeit des Regelkonzeptes stellt auch der Ansatz zur Charakterisierung der Nachverbrennung einen Mehrwert zum derzeit bekannten Stand der Technik dar.
