CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Refrigeration Systems and Applications, 2 nd edition offers a comprehensive
treatise that addresses real-life technical and operational problems, enabling
the reader to gain an understanding of the fundamental principles and the
practical applications of refrigeration technology. New and unique analysis
techniques (including exergy as a potential tool), models, correlations,
procedures and applications are covered, and recent developments in the field
are included - many of which are taken from the author's own research
activities in this area. The book also includes some discussion of global
warming issues and its potential solutions. Enables the reader to gain an
understanding of the fundamental principles and the practical applications of
refrigeration technologies. Discusses crucial industrial technical and
operational problems, as well as new performance improvement techniques and
tools for better design and analysis. Includes fundamental aspects of
thermodynamics, fluid flow, and heat transfer; refrigerants; refrigeration
cycles and systems; advanced refrigeration cycles and systems, including some
novel applications; heat pumps; heat pipes; and many more. Provides easy to
follow explanations, numerous new chapter-end problems and worked-out examples
as learning aids for students and instructors.
Refrigeration is extensively used in a variety of thermal engineering
applications ranging from the cooling of electronic devices to food cooling
processes. Its wide-ranging implications and applications mean that this
industry plays a key role in national and international economies, and it
continues to be an area of active research and development. Refrigeration
Systems and Applications, 2 nd edition forms a useful reference source for
graduate and postgraduate students and researchers in academia and as well as
practicing engineers working in this important field who are interested in
refrigeration systems and applications and the methods and analysis tools for
their analysis, design and performance improvement.
