This innovative book uses unifying themes so that the boundaries between thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics become transparent. It begins with an introduction to the numerous engineering applications that may require the integration of principles and tools from these disciplines. The authors then present an in-depth examination of the three disciplines, providing readers with the necessary background to solve various engineering problems. The remaining chapters delve into the topics in more detail and rigor. Numerous practical engineering applications are mentioned throughout to illustrate where and when certain equations, concepts, and topics are needed.
A comprehensive introduction to thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer, this title:

The thermal sciences in an integrated approach!
In the real world, thermal systems problems don’t always conform to the rigid disciplinary lines of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. More often, you’ll need to draw from all three of these disciplines to find a solution.
That’s why Deborah Kaminski and Michael Jensen present a highly innovative and integrated approach that highlights the interconnections among thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. The text introduces these three topics early, allowing students to build a firm foundation for later chapters. Throughout the text, integrated examples and problems illustrate the interconnected nature of the three disciplines.
Kaminski and Jensen’s approach features:
Deborah A. Kaminski is the author of over 80 peer-reviewed articles in technical journals, an invited article in the New York Times, a featured article in Science, with associated podcast, and an engineering textbook published by John Wiley & Sons. After receiving her B.S. degree in Physics, Deborah Kaminski spent 5 years at the General Electric Research and Development Center in Schenectady, New York. Her work focused on heat transfer in electrical machinery, including motors, transformers, batteries, and generators. She then returned to Rensselaer for doctoral research on computational fluid dynamics in free convection. After receiving her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, she joined the Rensselaer faculty in 1985, and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 1991.
