    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
