Dr. Mofid Gorji-Bandpy received his MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering, University of Tehran, Iran, in 1978. In 1990, he obtained his PhD degree in Hydraulic Engineering from the School of Engineering, University of Wales College of Cardiff (UWCC), UK. At present, he is a Full Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Babol Noshirvani University of Technology, Babol, Iran. He is also a Visiting Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Toronto, Canada. He has visited more than 40 countries of the world. His major interests are in advanced methods of energy conversion systems, turbomachinery, fluid mechanics, water distribution network, and the solutions of both energy and environmental problems. He has published more than two hundred papers in these fields. He has also several refereed publications in different fields of mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, and aerodynamics. In addition, he has been an invited editor and reviewer for many international scientific journals.

Thermodynamics is a branch of physics concerned with heat and temperature and their relation to energy and work. It defines macroscopic variables, such as internal energy, entropy, and pressure, that partly describe a body of matter or radiation. It states that the behavior of these variables is subject to general constraints that are common to all materials, not to the peculiar properties of particular materials. These general constraints are expressed in the three laws of thermodynamics which had a deep influence on the development of physics and chemistry. The book aims to present novel ideas that are crossing traditional disciplinary boundaries and introducing a wide spectrum of viewpoints and approaches in applied thermodynamics of the third millennium. The book will be of interest to those working in the fields of propulsion systems, power generation systems, chemical industry, quantum systems, refrigeration, fluid flow, combustion, and other phenomena.
