Customer Reviews

The book lacked a lot of useful explanations and was heavier on theory than application.
Trip Westward
I used this book for my first thermodynamics class in my chemical engineering major and the book is very understandable and clearly written.
Amy Brown
Therefore, if you are trying to solve certain end-of-chapter problems, the worked out chapter examples are not always helpful.

...but you were probably assigned this for class instead or as well, since Smith, Van Ness, and Abbott's text does cover more material than Felder and Rousseau (Fugacity, vapor-liquid equilibrium, improved gas laws/correlations, et cetera). The tables in this book are pretty good, there's a lot of information there. The main problems with this book are organization and clarity. It feels like this book was written assuming you start reading at the front towards the back, and remember EVERYTHING covered. It's a little frustrating spending 20+ minutes trying to track down the relevant information needed to frame your equations. The Peng-Robinson equation(s) are scattered over a whole chapter, for a mild example. The information is there, but finding the relevant parts while weeding out the rest without getting confused is a challenge.

This edition of the Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics is much more friendly version to the reader than former ones. It also has more industry related problems. Another change with respect to the former ones is that The example problems are exposed and solved in the SI system of units, which is a more globally used system than the English one.

It is a classic book for chemical engineers and a must read book either as a main textbook or as an alternate textbook, for anyone planning to do undergraduate or graduate thermodynamic courses in that discipline.

As far as text books go, this one is not bad. It's decently well written and put together. There are a lot of graphs and diagrams to explain the material.There are not as many example problems as there need to be, but the questions at the end of the chapter are very straightforward. Not a very extensive reference section either.

I understand that this topic requires a lot of explanation. This textbook although verbose didn't cover much ground after introducing the topic. Often you will have a good explanation and example and then as the problem gets more difficult steps begin to be skipped by the author making it difficult to actually learn how to master the complicated questions given by your instructor. I feel that this book needs a substantial amount of work. It may have a lot of good information but lacks the ability to convey it to the student.

This is a solid thermo textbook. Goes over concepts and theories fairly well. There are plenty of worked out examples throughout the chapters and appendixes so you know what you're doing. The authors explain everything in a clear and cohesive manner. Somethings are overwhelming, but it is thermodynamics. Plenty of appendixes for steam tables, interroplation, unit conversions, and virial equation constants, etc.

I suggest you get the Schaum's outline as a good reference too.

This book explains the basics of thermodynamics very well. However, when it comes to conceptual things like fugacity and bubble point, i feel that the book does a poor job.

I don't understand everything about Thermo still because fugacity and activity and all that still get me sometimes, but it's been a great experience. Our tests were open book, so I've come to really appreciate the book itself. It's been helpful.

Filled with lots of theory and not enough examples, but the the book makes thermodynamics suck a lot less. Wish the book would focus more on the application of thermodynamic principles.
