9780072976755: Fundamentals of Thermal-Fluid Sciences w/ EES CD-ROM: With EES CD-ROM and OLC

The Second Edition of Fundamentals of Thermal-Fluid Sciences presents up-to-date, balanced coverage of the three major subject areas comprising introductory thermal-fluid engineering: thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. By emphasizing the physics and underlying physical phenomena involved, the text encourages creative think, development of a deeper understanding of the subject matter, and is read with enthusiasm and interest by both students and professors.

From the Publisher:

The book omits heavy mathematical and theoretical aspects of subject matter such as the separation of variables and the Navier-Stokes equations. This method allows undergraduate students to focus on developing a sense of the underlying physical mechanisms and a mastery of solving practical problems an engineer is likely to face in the real world.
The book takes a more physical and intuitive approach to the subject matter. Everyday experiences are used as examples throughout the book. Frequently, parallels are drawn between the subject matter and the students everyday experiences so they can relate the subject matter to something they already know.
The text is self-instructive. It is easy to follow and understand.
The text is 2-color and contains a large number of graphics and figures. The figures not only give the student a better understanding of the subject-matter, they also spark interest and curiosity in the student.
This book encourages the use of open-ended problem-solving and gives students an early lead-in to design. This is done especially through the new EES (Engineering Equation Solver) supplement, which allows "What if?" scenarios for problem modeling and solving.
Additional application chapters will be included on the Book Website so professors can tailor the content to their particular course needs.
