Introduction to Thermodynamics and Heat Transferprovides balanced coverage of the basic concepts of thermodynamics and heat transfer.Together with the clear an numerous illustrations, student-friendly writing style, and manageable math, this is an ideal text for an introductory thermal science course for non-mechanical engineering majors.Continuing in the tradition ofCengel/Boles: Thermodynamics, this lavishly illustrated text presents the key topics in thermodynamics and heat transfer, in a highly accessible student-friendly fashion. The flexibly organized text can accommodate courses that spend anywhere from 1/3rd to 2/3rds or more of class time on thermodynamics and the rest on key heat transfer topics. The intuitive approach issupported by a wealth of physical explanations and analogies that draw parallels between the subject and the students' everyday experiences.Many of the 150 thoroughly worked out examples and almost 2,000 real-world problems, highlight applications from civil and electrical engineering.Over 1,000 illustrations help students visualize concepts,This approach and contents make this text an ideal resource for introduction to thermodynamics and/or thermal science courses intended for non-mechanical engineering majors.
