This book allows a school to use a common text for two key subjects: 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. Instructors will also find it easier to refer to material covered earlier (e.g. thermodynamic laws as applied in fluid mechanics and heat transfer). 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 book allows a school to use a common text for two key subjects: thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, with a short introduction to heat transfer.
