This is an integrated approach to thermal-fluid science including engineering thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. This alternate version has an additional CD-ROM containing the Homsy et. al. Multimedia Fluid Mechanics. Integration of the thermal-fluid sciences is achieved by using the fundamental conservation laws as organizing principles.

This is a special enhanced package of the text, Thermal-Fluid Sciences combined with the new second edition DVD of the Homsy et. al. Multimedia Fluid Mechanics. Thermal-Fluid Sciences is a truly integrated textbook for an engineering course covering thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics. The integration of the text is based on: * The fundamental conservation principles of mass, energy, and momentum * An hierarchical grouping of related topics * The early introduction and revisiting of practical device examples and applications The focus is on accuracy and pedagogy. To enhance learning Thermal-Fluid Sciences features full color illustrations. The robust pedagogy includes: chapter learning objectives, overviews, historical vignettes, numerous examples following a consistent problem-solving format enhanced by innovative self tests. Each chapter concludes with a brief summary and a unique checklist of key concepts and definitions. Integrated tutorials show the student how to use modern software including the NIST Database (included on the in-text CD) to obtain thermodynamic and transport properties.Biografía del autor:
Stephen R. Turns has been a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University since completing his PhD at the University of Wisconsin in 1979. Before completing his PhD Steve spent five years in the Engine Research Department of General Motors Research Laboratories in Warren, Michigan. His active research interests include the study of pollutant formation and control in combustion systems, combustion engines, combustion instrumentation, slurry fuel combustion, energy conversion, and energy policy. He has published numerous refereed journal articles on many of these topics. Steve Turns is a member of the ASME and many other professional organizations and an ASME-ABET Program Evaluator since 1994. Steve is also a dedicated teacher for which he has won numerous awards including the Penn State Teaching and Learning Consortium, Hall of Fame Faculty Award; Penn State's Milton S. Eisenhower Award for Distinguished Teaching; the Premier Teaching Award, Penn State Engineering Society; and the Outstanding Teaching Award, Penn State Engineering Society. Steve's talent as a teacher is also reflected in his best-selling advanced undergraduate textbook Introduction to Combustion: Concepts and Applications 2/e. Steve's commitment to students and teaching is reflected in the innovative approach and design of Thermal-Fluid Sciences: An Integrated Approach and its companion volume Thermodynamics, also published by Cambridge University Press.
