Abstract:

This volume is the report of the Conference on Thermodynamics and National Energy Problems which was held at Airlie House, Warrenton, Va, 10-12 June 1974, and attended by about 110 scientists and engineers from universities, industry and government, The purpose of the Conference was to arrive at both the needs for thermodynamic data in a developed program to achieve national energy selfsufficiency, and the capability of thermodynamicists to meet those needs. To achieve this purpose, most of the time of the Conference was spent in four parallel panel discussion sessions, on coal, fossil fuels other than coal, nuclear energy, geothermal energy and solar energy and energy storage. The report includes a summary of each panels recommendations and reasons for them, an overview summary, texts of prepared presentation, and all pertinent discussion.
