Applied Thermosciences: Principles and Applications
Applied Thermosciences is designed as a complete course text in mechanical, energy, aeronautical and environmental engineering. The text is comprehensive in its coverage, lays special stress on the basic concepts, the approach is systematic and logical and emphasis throughout is placed on the application of the theory to real processes. Thermodynamics of fluid flow, principles of refrigeration, air-conditioning, heat transfer and harnessing solar energy has been discussed because they form an important constituent of applied thermosciences.
