Book Description

This survey of thermal systems engineering combines coverage of thermodynamics, fluid flow, and heat transfer in one volume. Developed by leading educators in the field, this book sets the standard for those interested in the thermal-fluids market. Drawing on the best of what works from market leading texts in thermodynamics (Moran), fluids (Munson) and heat transfer (Incropera), this book introduces thermal engineering using a systems focus, introduces structured problem-solving techniques, and provides applications of interest to all engineers.

1There were many book which was bad. But this book makes it to the top
By Yousuf Rumi
One of the most abysmal book I have ever encountered. As a senior in college, I had the opportunity to read a lot of text books and reference books. There were many book which was bad. But this book makes it to the top. No explanation of theories behind math and examples are inadequate. The book has problem that is unrelated with the subject topic and you have to use extra books to do the problems
