Principles of Refrigeration by Roy J. Dossat (1961, 554 pages)

“Principles of Refrigeration”, by Roy J. Dossat (1961, 554 pages). From the Preface: This textbook has been written especially for use in programs where a full curriculum in refrigeration is offered. However, the material covered and the method of presentation are such that the text is also suitable for adult evening classes and for on-the-job training and self-instruction. Furthermore, the material is so arranged and sectionalized that this textbook is readily adaptable to any level of study and to any desired method or sequence of presentation. Despite a rigorous treatment of the thermodynamics of the cycle, application of the calculus is not required nor is an extensive background in physics and thermodynamics presupposed. The first four chapters deal with the fundamental principles of physics and thermodynamics upon which the refrigeration cycle is based. For those who are already familiar with these fundamentals, the chapters will serve as review or reference material. Chapter 21 treats electric motors and control circuits as they apply to refrigeration and air conditioning systems. This material is presented from the viewpoint of practical application, the more mathematical approach being left to companion electrical courses. Throughout this textbook emphasis is placed on the cyclic nature of the refrigeration system, and each part of the system is carefully examined in relation to the whole. Too, care is taken continually to correlate theory and practice through the use of manufacturer’s catalog data and many sample problems. To this end, certain pertinent catalog data are included.
