Principles of Refrigerationprovides comprehensive coverage of refrigeration theory, components, and systems analysis and design. For both students and professionals, this book presents the science behind the operation of refrigeration systems as a method for building solid analytical skills, which will set the student/technician apart when it comes to understanding and troubleshooting system malfunctions, inefficiencies, and service requirements. Key features of this edition: The use of a dual system of units: the customary American system as well as the SI system. The basic science of thermodynamics, heat transfer, mechanics, and applied physics has been expanded with better explanations and examples. Fundamental principles are applied to the refrigeration cycles to show how changes in system variables are transferred throughout the system. Many sections have been reorganized and rewritten to improve the development and flow of concepts. Longer chapters have been divided into more manageable units. Much of the mathematics has been moved to the end of each chapter, in a section called "Optional Analysis."Roy J. Dossat is the author of 'Principles of Refrigeration (5th Edition)', published 2001 under ISBN 9780130272706 and ISBN 0130272701.
