Book Description

February 3, 2011 0077422406 978-0077422400 4

The best-selling Fundamentals of Thermal-Fluid Sciences is designed for the non-mechanical engineering student who needs exposure to key concepts in the thermal sciences in order to pass the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam. The text is made up of Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer and Fluids. Like all the other Cengel texts, it uses a similar pedagogical approach, by using familiar everyday examples followed by theory and analysis.

This edition features a return of Power and Refrigeration Cycles coverage in a revised and streamlined new chapter as well as more examples featuring sustainability and green technology. Additionally, the artwork is substantially revised and improved with more inclusion of three-dimensional figures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for learning the FUNDAMENTALS. December 25, 2001
I thought this was a very well written, organized book. The concepts were explained very clearly. It was great to finally find an understandable book on this subject; other thermo/fluids books that I have read haven't been as informative and comprehendable.
One of the drawbacks, however, was the fact that the examples presented within the book were very simple and didn't cover the concepts in as much depth as I had hoped. Many complex topics that were in the questions at the end of the chapter hadn't been covered well enough in the preceding text to allow them to be both solved AND understood. Furthermore, there were some thermo/fluid topics that weren't covered in the book at all that I thought should have been (compressible flow, for example). As a result, when I took the course in college, my professor had to print out pages from other thermo books to compensate for this.
Despite this, however, there were many pictures that accompanied the examples and again, as stated above, it was easy to understand. I was very impressed with that, given the abstractness of the subject, and the difficulty that other authors have had explaining it effectively.
The bottom line: It was a great book to learn about the fundamentals. I suppose, according to the title, it has served its purpose. However, if you want to go into depth with this subject, go elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Written March 14, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not much fluff. Very to the point with introducing the material. Would recommend the solutions manual as very few answers are given to the practice problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book seems well written.... But where is answer key? August 8, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
While the book is filled with examples left and right about various problems you will encounter, there is no answer key to look and see if you got the correct answer. This is one of the downfalls of the book. However, all in all, the explanation of concepts and thorough explanation of the examples leads students in the right direction when encountering practice problems.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting read! October 11, 2000
By A Customer
I am currently taking an introductory course in thermodynamics. I find this book to be a very interesting read. The book uses both SI units and Imperial units, which at times seem very confusing. There is a lot of information on this book, thus this book is a good starting point to learn about thermodynamics.
