Translating fundamental principles of irreversible thermodynamics into day-to-day engineering concepts, this reference provides the tools to accurately measure process efficiency and sustainability in the power and chemical industries-helping engineers to recognize why losses occur and how they can be reduced utilizing familiar thermodynamic principles. Compares the present industrial society with an emerging metabolic society in which mass production and consumption are in closer harmony with the natural environment. The first book to utilize classic thermodynamic principles for clear understanding, analysis, and optimization of work flows, environmental resources, and driving forces in the chemical and power industries.
