9780073529257: Fundamentals of Thermal-fluid Sciences

The best-selling "Fundamentals of Thermal-Fluid Sciences" is designed for the non-mechanical engineering student who needs exposure to key concepts in the thermal sciences. This lavishly illustrated text provides a highly intuitive and practical understanding of the material by emphasizing the physics and the underlying physical phenomena involved. Using a reader-friendly approach and a conversational writing style, the book is self-instructive and entertains while it teaches. It shows that highly technical matter can be communicated effectively using simple yet precise language. The text is made up of Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, and Fluids. The laws that govern these three subjects are all the same. Like all the other Cengel texts, it uses a similar pedagogical approach, by using familiar everyday examples.

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.
