Introduction To Thermal and Fluids Engineering (05 Edition)by Deborah Kaminski
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
The thermal sciences in an integrated approach!
In the real world, thermal systems problems don’t always conform to the rigid disciplinary lines of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. More often, you’ll need to draw from all three of these disciplines to find a solution.
That’s why Deborah Kaminski and Michael Jensen present a highly innovative and integrated approach that highlights the interconnections among thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. The text introduces these three topics early, allowing students to build a firm foundation for later chapters. Throughout the text, integrated examples and problems illustrate the interconnected nature of the three disciplines.
Kaminski and Jensen’s approach features:
This innovative book uses unifying themes so that the boundaries between thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics become transparent. It begins with an introduction to the numerous engineering applications that may require the integration of principles and tools from these disciplines. The authors then present an in-depth examination of the three disciplines, providing readers with the necessary background to solve various engineering problems. The remaining chapters delve into the topics in more detail and rigor. Numerous practical engineering applications are mentioned throughout to illustrate where and when certain equations, concepts, and topics are needed.
A comprehensive introduction to thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer, this title:
