Uses an integrated approach to show the interrelationships between thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid dynamics, stressing the physics of each. Mathematical description is included to allow the solution of simple problems in thermal sciences. New to this editionSI and English units plus twice as many example problems which emphasize practical applications of the principles discussed.
A textbook for a one-semester course for undergraduate engineering students not majoring in mechanical engineering. Introduces the fundamentals of the thermal sciences, emphasizing the physical description of phenomena, but with enough mathematics to solve simple problems. Assumes undergraduate physics, chemistry, and mathematics through differential equations and introductory vector calculus. First published in 1984. Annotation c.
