Author(s):Cengel, Yunus A. and Turner, Robert H.
Publisher:McGraw-Hill Science/Engineering/Math
Publication Date:18 Jul 2000
Subject:SCIENCE / Mechanics / Dynamics / Thermodynamics
Description:This text is ideal for a comprehensive first course in introductory thermal sciences for engineering students in their junior and senior years. With a wealth of engineering applications it is also a useful reference for practicing engineers. The text covers the basic principles of thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics in a readable interesting manner, with 2-color graphics throughout. The emphasis is kept on physics and physical arguments in order to develop an intuitive understanding of the subject matter. The text contains sufficient material to give instructors flexibility, and to accommodate their preferences on the right blend of thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics for their students. By careful selection of topics, an instructor can spend 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 of the course on thermodynamics, and the rest on selected topics of heat transfer and fluid mechanics.
Author Bio:Yunus Cengel (Reno, Nevada) is Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno.
