A concise, illustrated core thermal science text with a focus on industrial applications Essential for engineering students and those preparing for the FE/EIT exam, Thermal Scienceoffers a one-semester course treatment of the three main topics in thermal science: thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. In addition to theory, the book uses a numerical approach to heat transfer, solving large-scale, real-world engineering problems. This book first covers thermodynamics, how energy is transformed and the interactions between temperature, pressure, and volume, and applications such as the efficiency of engines and refrigerators. Fluid mechanics is the second core topic and examines fluids, forces, and fluid motion; with applications in aerospace, chemical, civil, environmental, and mechanical engineering. Heat transfer is discussed next, the applications of which include heat exchangers, heating, ventilating, air-conditioning (HVAC), car radiators, hot water heaters, steam boilers, cooling of microelectronics, and even ordinary cooking utensils. Thermal Science Offers a compact, one-semester course treatment of the three main topics in thermal science Stresses the fundamentals of thermal sciences and covers sub-topics in depth, notably in fluid mechanics Includes examples in each of the three sub-topics of thermal science, demonstrated with real-world engineering problems Contains dozens of illustrations, some three-dimensional Written by an expert who taught the course for 14 years and has several years of industrial experience in aerospace engineering Valuable to engineers preparing for the FE/EIT exam Puts definitions into perspective with simple language and examples
