Thermal-Fluid Sciences is a truly integrated textbook for engineering courses covering thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics. This integration is based on: 1. The fundamental conservation principles of mass, energy, and momentum; 2. A hierarchical grouping of related topics; 3. The early introduction and revisiting of practical device examples and applications. As with all great textbooks the focus is on accuracy and accessibility. To enhance the learning experience Thermal-Fluid Sciences features full color illustrations. The robust pedagogy includes: chapter learning objectives, overviews, historical vignettes, numerous examples which follow a consistent problem-solving format enhanced by innovative self tests and color coding to highlight significant equations and advanced topics. Each chapter concludes with a brief summary and a unique checklist of key concepts and definitions. Integrated tutorials show the student how to use modern software including the NIST Database (included on the in-text CD) to obtain thermodynamic and transport properties.

“The book can easily be adopted as a course resource in undergraduate engineering fluid dynamics courses and even in a self-study approach. Highly recommended.”
This text is an integrated approach to thermal-fluid science. Links between theory and applications are stressed through examples and by using the fundamental mass, energy, and momentum conservation laws as organizing principles and by using five practical applications as themes. All examples follow the problem-solving method in Chapter 1.
