The Yaws’ Handbook of Thermodynamic Properties of Hydrocarbons and Chemicals A Must-Have For Anyone Working In the Fields of Chemical Engineering
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c45860) has announced the addition of Yaws' Handbook of Thermodynamic Properties for Hydrocarbons and Chemicals to their offering.
Written by one of the most prolific and well-respected chemical engineers that the industry has ever produced, this is the most comprehensive and thorough volume ever written on the thermodynamic properties of hydrocarbons and chemicals. Carl Yaws is the world's foremost authority on vapour pressure and the properties of hydrocarbons and chemicals and he again proves it in this follow up to his important work published in 2005, Yaws' Handbook of Physical Properties of Hydrocarbons and Chemicals.
Covering the thermodynamic properties of hydrocarbons and chemicals, this volume covers the spectrum, including chapters on the heat capacity and entropy of gas, the heat capacity and entropy of solids, the heat capacity of liquids, the entropy of formation and many other topics. Not just useful for the scientists in the lab or the student, this volume provides valuable information for the engineer working in the field.
The design of heat exchangers and other equipment for heating or cooling substances to temperatures necessary in process applications requires knowledge of heat capacity, covered in the first portion of the book. The heat effects of the chemical reactions are ascertained from enthalpy of formation, covered in chapter four. Other chapters cover the Hemmholtz energy of formation, internal energy of formation and entropy of formation, useful in modeling and ascertaining the energy of explosions. The thermodynamic properties provided in the book are important in design, operations, research, development, environmental and safety covering literally thousands of compounds.
This coverage greatly exceeds the coverage of any other book and makes Yaws' Handbook of Thermodynamic Properties of Hydrocarbons and Chemicals a must-have for anyone working in the fields of chemical engineering, process engineering, refining and chemistry.
