Thermal-Fluid Sciences is a truly integrated textbook for engineering courses covering thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics. This integration is based on: 1. The fundamental conservation principles of mass, energy, and momentum; 2. A hierarchical grouping of related topics; 3. The early introduction and revisiting of practical device examples and applications. As with all great textbooks the focus is on accuracy and accessibility. To enhance the learning experience Thermal-Fluid Sciences features full color illustrations. The robust pedagogy includes: chapter learning objectives, overviews, historical vignettes, numerous examples which follow a consistent problem-solving format enhanced by innovative self tests and color coding to highlight significant equations and advanced topics. Each chapter concludes with a brief summary and a unique checklist of key concepts and definitions. Integrated tutorials show the student how to use modern software including the NIST Database (included on the in-text CD) to obtain thermodynamic and transport properties.

Stephen Turns. Pennsylvania State University
Stephen R. Turns has been a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University since completing his PhD at the University of Wisconsin in 1979. Before completing his PhD Steve spent five years in the Engine Research Department of General Motors Research Laboratories in Warren, Michigan. His active research interests include the study of pollutant formation and control in combustion systems, combustion engines, combustion instrumentation, slurry fuel combustion, energy conversion, and energy policy. He has published numerous refereed journal articles on many of these topics. Steve Turns is a member of the ASME and many other professional organizations and an ASME-ABET Program Evaluator since 1994. Steve is also a dedicated teacher for which he has won numerous awards including the Penn State Teaching and Learning Consortium, Hall of Fame Faculty Award; Penn State's Milton S. Eisenhower Award for Distinguished Teaching; the Premier Teaching Award, Penn State Engineering Society; and the Outstanding Teaching Award, Penn State Engineering Society. Steve's talent as a teacher is also reflected in his best-selling advanced undergraduate textbook Introduction to Combustion: Concepts and Applications 2/e. Steve's commitment to students and teaching is reflected in the innovative approach and design of Thermal-Fluid Sciences: An Integrated Approach and its companion volume Thermodynamics, also published by Cambridge University Press.
