This book, Thermodynamics is the written text of the lectures that I gave in the Mechanical Engineering Departments of the İstanbul Teknik Üniversitesi and Işık Üniversitesi. These notes are more oriented to the mechanical engineering students. However the students of the other engineering disciplines may learn the basic laws and definitions of thermodynamics from these notes.
The book is planned over 12 lectures (weeks). Problems are given almost at the end of each lecture. I strongly urge the students to solve these problems. Answers to problems are given at the end of the book. Thermodynamics course cannot be given without property tables for substances. In the solution of problems in this book, property tables that take place in the book “Chemical and Process Thermodynamics” written by B.G. Kyles, (Englewood Cliffs) are used. These tables can easily be reached from the internet.
Lecture notes are prepared in two languages: Turkish and English. Both versions are identical. Both versions can be obtained from the İTÜ Yayınevi.
Lecture notes naturally reflect my own opinions, thoughts and interpretations, besides what I learned from many textbooks and my teachers. Some of the reference books are given at the end of lecture 12.
I sincerely hope that this book will aid students and professors interested in thermodynamics.

Prof.Dr.Taner Derbentli was born in Muş in 1948. He did his primary, secondary and high school education in Diyarbakır, Samsun (Turkey) and Winnipeg (Canada) . He attended the bachelors and masters programs of mechanical engineering
at the University of Manitoba, and obtained B.Sc and M.Sc degrees in 1970 and 1972. After obtaining his Ph. D. Degree in Thermal Technologies from the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture of the İstanbul Technical University (İTÜ) in 1980,
he continued his academic carrier in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of İTÜ. He taught at İTÜ, Boğaziçi ve Işık universities, giving lectures in Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Applied Thermal Sciences, Computational Heat
Tranfer and Thermoeconomy.
He served as the director of the İTÜ Graduate School in 2001, and the Dean of the İTÜ Faculty of Mechanical Engineering between 2004 and 2010.
