Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0534385214, Hardcover)This text combines thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, with a short introduction to heat transfer. Taking a well-balanced approach, the authors clearly demonstrate the connections among the three interrelated subjects. Because of the consistent terminology and continuity, students will find it easier to learn the three subjects. The book provides the appropriate amount of material for non-mechanical engineering students. Addressing various levels of difficulty, the authors provide a wealth of examples and exercises, including synthesis problems and design problems.

This text is written so it can be used in either the two-semester sequence of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics or in the course that introduces all three subjects (thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer).-Pref. Many physical systems involve energy storage, transformation, transfer, and transport; [this book] presents an introductory analysis of these phenomena ... In the study of Engineering Thermodynamics, we present a more global analysis and do not investigate the details of how energy is transferred or transported. The details of how energy is transported by a fluid, inside a pipe or around a body, are considered in Fluid Mechanics. Heat transfer presents the details of how energy is transferred from a boundary, such as a pipe to another body in contact with the boundary, or to a body some distance away, or to the fluid next to the boundary.-Introd.
