A brand new book, FUNDAMENTALS OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING THERMODYNAMICS makes the abstract subject of chemical engineering thermodynamics more accessible to undergraduate students. The subject is presented through a problem-solving inductive (from specific to general) learning approach, written in a conversational and approachable manner. Suitable for either a one-semester course or two-semester sequence in the subject, this book covers thermodynamics in a complete and mathematically rigorous manner, with an emphasis on solving practical engineering problems. The approach taken stresses problem-solving, and draws from "best practice" engineering teaching strategies. FUNDAMENTALS OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING THERMODYNAMICS uses examples to frame the importance of the material. Each topic begins with a motivational example that is investigated in context to that topic. This framing of the material is helpful to all readers, particularly to global learners who require "big picture" insights, and hands-on learners who struggle with abstractions. Each worked example is fully annotated with sketches and comments on the thought process behind the solved problems. Common errors are presented and explained. Extensive margin notes add to the book accessibility as well as presenting opportunities for investigation.

Kevin D. Dahm joined the Rowan University Chemical Engineering department in 1999. He received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from WPI in 1992 and his PhD in Chemical Engineering from MIT in 1998. He has published numerous articles on engineering pedagogy, on topics such as instilling metacognition in engineering students, pedagogically sound uses for process simulation, engineering economics and assessment of student learning. He has received four national awards for contributions to engineering education: the 2002 ASEE PIC-III Award, the 2003 Joseph J. Martin Award, the 2004 Raymond Fahien Award and the 2005 Corcoran Award. In addition, he and his father Donald Dahm authored the book Interpreting Diffuse Reflectance and Transmittance: A Theoretical Introduction to Absorption Spectroscopy of Scattering Materials . Prior to joining Rowan University, he was a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley and an adjunct professor at North Carolina A&T State University.

Donald P. Visco is currently Associate Dean at Akron University. Prior to joining Akron University, Visco was a professor of chemical engineering and interim associate dean of engineering at Tennessee Technological University. Visco received both his B.S. and PhD at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York. He has received local, regional and national recognition for his research and teaching, including: National Outstanding Teaching Award, ASEE, 2009 Outstanding Teaching Award, ASEE-SE, 2008 Distinguished Faculty Fellow (Tenn. Tech), 2007 Outstanding Faculty Award in Teaching (Tenn. Tech), 2007 ASEE Zone 2 Outstanding Campus Representative 2007 ASEE-SE Outstanding Campus Representative 2007 Ray E. Fahien Award, ASEE (National Chemical Engineering Division), 2006 Brown-Henderson Outstanding Engineering Faculty Award (Tenn. Tech), 2006 ASEE-SE New Faculty Research Award (1st Place), 2005 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), 2004 NNSA DOE-DP Early Career Scientist and Engineer Award, 2004 Kinslow Engineering Research Award (Tenn. Tech.), 2000.
