The book calls attention to a method of describing and investigating various physicochemical processes in their inseparable link with the heat form of energy. The method is based on the law of energy conservation and free of hypotheses and postulates. All the basic principles, laws and equations of equilibrium and nonequilibrium thermodynamics, heat- and mass-exchange theory, thermo-economics and thermodynamics of finite-time processes are here derived from this method as particular cases. The book considers also with much attention phenomena at the interfaces between heat engineering and other engineering disciplines, elaborates new applications of the energy transfer and conversion theories, as well as analyzes paralogisms arising in thermodynamics due to its inconsistent extrapolation. The book is intended for researches, engineers and university students keen-set for updating, extension and integration of knowledge in heat engineering disciplines. It may be useful also for a wide audience interested in issues relating to perfection of the modern natural science conceptual frameworks.
