This text is intended for mechanical engineering majors taking a thermal design course. It combines practical coverage of thermal/fluid components and systems with review coverage of prerequisite thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Extensive case studies and practical examples show students how the thermal design is done, and the techniques used to simulate and optimize such designs. The modern approach shows students the general design process, use of software tools for design analysis and simulation, and experimental methods. Report writing, economic factors and ethical considerations are also discussed in the context of engineering practice. - The book website includes downloadable EES software, scripted problems and examples from the book, and general user information on employing EES in thermal design project work. - A chapter on formulating and writing technical reports will give students an important skill which they will need when they enter the job market. - Detailed case studies of thermal/fluid systems give students a starting point for their own project work. By selecting a variety of applications (a power plant, a refrigeration plant, and a residential HVAC system), the variety of thermal systems is demonstrated.
