Energy efficiency-a top priority across the range of engineering disciplines-requires a thorough understanding and careful application of thermophysical heat transfer. Although closely related, most texts tend to treat thermodynamics and heat transfer separately. The Principles of Thermal Science and Their Application to Engineering unifies the two topics in a unique approach that offers readers a strong, practical background in thermal science.
The author covers virtually the entire field in a single, easy-to-read book. Beginning with classical thermodynamics, the chapters discuss the First, Second, and Third Laws of Thermodynamics, engine cycles, and other topics. The focus then shifts to heat transfer, with a thorough examination of conduction and convection and exploring various aspects radiation heat transfer. Finally, the text offers a clear, concise introduction to statistical thermodynamics.
Numerous worked examples complement the text and offer readers a glimpse into problems often encountered in practice, in areas ranging from typical heat transfer problems to simulation of energy problems, and including questions related to combustion and the environment. Ideal for both self-study and coursework, The Principles of Thermal Science and Their Application to Engineering helps build the foundation needed by engineers in all disciplines, and will prove itself particularly valuable for chemical engineers, fuel technologists, and fire scientists.

a timely offering in view of the present concerns of governments with global warming, carbon dioxide emissions and power generation, dealing as it does with the thermal sciences and heat transfer. The author should be congratulated on a clear exposition of a difficult topic in a very well written book which is well prepared with crystal clear text and line drawingsa good buyexcellent value for the money." -Professor John W.
