The fourth edition in SI units of "Fundamentals of Thermal-Fluid Sciences" presents a balanced coverage of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer packaged in a manner suitable for use in introductory thermal sciences courses. By emphasizing the physics and underlying physical phenomena involved, the text gives students practical examples that allow development of an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of thermal sciences. All the popular features of the previous edition are retained in this edition while new ones are added. This edition features: a new chapter on Power and Refrigeration Cycles; the new Chapter 9 exposes students to the foundations of power generation and refrigeration in a well-ordered and compact manner. An Early Introduction to the First Law of Thermodynamics (Chapter 3): this chapter establishes a general understanding of energy, mechanisms of energy transfer, and the concept of energy balance, thermo-economics, and conversion efficiency. Learning Objectives: each chapter begins with an overview of the material to be covered and chapter-specific learning objectives to introduce the material and to set goals. Developing Physical Intuition: a special effort is made to help students develop an intuitive feel for underlying physical mechanisms of natural phenomena and to gain a mastery of solving practical problems that an engineer is likely to face in the real world. New Problems: A large number of problems in the text are modified and many problems are replaced by new ones. Some of the solved examples are also replaced by new ones. Upgraded Artwork: much of the line artwork in the text is upgraded to figures that appear more three-dimensional and realistic. Media resources: limited Academic Version of EES with selected text solutions packaged with the text on the Student DVD. The Online Learning Center offers online resources for instructors including PowerPoint[registered] lecture slides, and complete solutions to homework problems. McGraw-Hill's Complete Online Solutions Manual Organization System allows instructors to streamline the creation of assignments, quizzes, and tests by using problems and solutions from the textbook, as well as their own custom material.

Yunus A. Cengel is Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno. He received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Istanbul Technical University and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University. His areas of interest are renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy policies, heat transfer enhancement, and engineering education. He served as the Director of the Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) at the University of Nevada, Reno, from 1996 to 2000. He has led teams of engineering students to numerous manufacturing facilities in Northern Nevada and California to perform industrial assessments, and has prepared energy conservation, waste minimization, and productivity enhancement reports for them. He has also served as an advisor for various government organizations and corporations. Dr. Cengel is also the author or coauthor of the widely adopted textbooks Fundamentals of Thermal-Fluid Sciences, Heat and Mass Transfer: Fundamentals and Applications, and Introduction to Thermodynamics, all published by McGraw-Hill Education. Some of his textbooks have been translated into Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Italian, Greek, and French. Dr. Cengel is the recipient of several outstanding teacher awards, and he has received the ASEE Meriam/Wiley Distinguished Author Award for excellence in authorship in 1992 and again in 2000. Dr. Cengel is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Nevada, and is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). John M. Cimbala insegna presso la Pennsylvania State University. Robert H. Turner is Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). He earned a B.S. and M.S. from the University of California at Berkeley, and his Ph.D. from UCLA, all in mechanical engineering. He worked in industry for 18 years, including nine years at Cal Tech's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Dr. Turner then joined the University of Nevada in 1983. His research interests include solar and renewable energy applications, thermal sciences, and energy conservation. He established and was the first director of the Industrial Assessment Center at the University of Nevada. For 20 years Dr. Turner has designed the solar components of many houses. In 1994-95, in a cooperative effort between UNR and Erciyes University in Kayseri, Turkey, he designed and oversaw construction of the fully instrumented Solar Research Laboratory at Erciyes University, featuring 130 square meters of site-integrated solar collectors. His interest in applications has led Dr. Turner to maintain an active consulting practice. Dr. Turner is a registered Professional Engineer and is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
