The laws of thermodynamics are discussed with emphasis on their real-world applications. This comprehensive resource clearly presents the flow-governing equations of fluid mechanics, including those of mass, linear momentum, and energy conservation.

Flow behavior through turbomachinery components is also addressed.

The three modes of heat transfer--conduction, convection, and radiation--are described along with practical applications of each.
