Practicing engineers in several fields can turn here for an accessible overview of the basic principles in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer--all in a self-instructive, easy-to-follow format. Focuses on developing a sense of the underlying physical mechanisms, and uses numerous examples and illustrations to help illuminate the real, thermal/fluid problems faced by engineers. Omits a heavy mathematical and theoretical emphasis in order to foster a more physical, intuitive approach to the subject matter.
