The objective of this text is to cover the basic principles of Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, and Heat Transfer. Diverse real-world Engineering examples are presented to give students a feel for how Thermal-Fluid Sciences are applied in Engineering practice. By emphasizing the physics and physical arguments, students are able to develop intuitive understanding of Thermal-Fluid Sciences.

The text contains sufficient material to give instructors flexibility and to accommodate their preferences on the right blend of Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, and Heat Transfer for their students. By careful selection of topics, an instructor can spend one-third, one-half, or two-thirds of the course on Thermodynamics and the rest on selected topics of Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer.

Also available with the fifth edition is Connect. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.
