Thermofluids An Integrated Approach to Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics Principles C. Marquand University of Westminster, London, UK D. Croft Sheffield Hallam University, UK This is a book about Energy. It examines some of the ways in which different types of energy are converted from one form to another. In particular, it considers why so many conversion processes which involve heat have a low efficiency. The text deliberately combines the topics of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, enabling readers to understand the wider field of energy transfer for thermal and fluid flow systems. The authors adopt a logical and simple-to-follow approach in order to introduce the potentially difficult and confusing aspects of thermofluids. Scores of worked examples are included throughout, many embracing a brief cost analysis.
