Introduction... [Thermodynamics ..From the Greek thermos meaning heat and dynamis meaning power].

Thermodynamics covers the relationship between heat, work, temperature, and energy, including the general behaviour of physical systems in a condition of equilibrium or close to it.    It is a fundamental part of all the physical sciences.

Fundamentals Heat Transfer.....Insulation Thermodynamics Relationships Thermodynamic Laws
Steady Flow Equation Thermodynamic Properties Entropy Cycles
Heat Engines Four/Two stroke Engines Steam Turbines Air Compressers /Pumps
Boilers Combustion Condensers Steam Tables

Thermodynamics is an experimental science based on a small number of principles that are derived from experience.   Classical Thermodynamics is concerned only with macroscopic or large-scale properties of matter and does not include the study of small-scale or microscopic structure of matter.  Statistical Thermodynamics ( not covered on this website) includes the study of the thermal relationships of atomic sized particles
