Thermodynamics of Fluids in Motion

  • Mrinal KaushikEmail author


The purpose of the present chapter is to review those aspects of thermodynamics that are essential to compressible flows. This is not the slightest bit expected to be a thorough discussion of thermodynamics; rather, it is an overview of only those key ideas and relations that will be of direct use in subsequent chapters. For the readers who are already familiar with the thermodynamics, this discussion will be a ready reminder of some important relations. This discussion is similarly helpful to those readers who are not comfortable with thermodynamics, as it is fairly independent in giving essential concepts and governing equations much of the time utilized as a part of subsequent chapters.
