A practical, illustrated guide to thermal science A practical, illustrated guide to thermal science Written by a subject-matter expert with many years of academic and industrial experience, Thermal Science provides detailed yet concise coverage of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. The laws of thermodynamics are discussed with emphasis on their real-world applications. This comprehensive resource clearly presents the flow-governing equations of fluid mechanics, including those of mass, linear momentum, and energy conservation. Flow behavior through turbomachinery components is also addressed. The three modes of heat transfer--conduction, convection, and radiation--are described along with practical applications of each. Thermal Science covers: Properties of pure substances and ideal gases First and second laws of thermodynamics Energy conversion by cycles Power-absorbing cycles Gas power cycles Flow-governing equations External and internal flow structures Rotating machinery fluid mechanics Variable-geometry turbomachinery stages Prandtl-Meyer flow Internal flow, friction, and pressure drop Fanno flow process for a viscous flow field Rayleigh flow Heat conduction and convection Heat exchangers Transfer by radiation Instructor material available for download from companion website
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
