Book Description

Using a systematic approach, this text is unique in the way it condenses the topics of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics—this allows readers to understand a wider range of energy conversion for thermal and fluid flow systems. Introduces difficult and confusing aspects in a logical and simple-to-follow manner. Considers methods in which diverse types of energy are converted from one form to another, focusing on why so many energy conversion processes involving heat have a low efficiency. Includes scores of worked examples.
