Thermal Energy : Sources, Recovery, and Applications, Hardback Book


The book details sources of thermal energy, methods of capture, and applications.

It describes the basics of thermal energy, including measuring thermal energy, laws of thermodynamics that govern its use and transformation, modes of thermal energy, conventional processes, devices and materials, and the methods by which it is transferred.

It covers 8 sources of thermal energy: combustion, fusion (solar) fission (nuclear), geothermal, microwave, plasma, waste heat, and thermal energy storage.

In each case, the methods of production and capture and its uses are described in detail.

It also discusses novel processes and devices used to improve transfer and transformation processes.
