A complete comprehensive guide to thermal systems design covering fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and thermodynamic power cycles

Connecting the gap between the fundamental concepts of fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer, and the practical design of thermo-fluids components and systems, Introduction to Thermo-Fluids Systems Design (PDF) focuses on the design of internal fluid flow systems, coiled heat exchangers, and performance analysis of power plant systems. The topics are organized so that each builds upon the previous chapter to convey to the reader that topics are not separate items during the design process, and that they all must come together to build a successful design.

Since the complete design or modification of modern equipment and systems needs knowledge of current industry practices, the authors stress the use of manufacturer’s catalogs to select equipment, and practical examples are included all through to give readers an exhaustive illustration of the basic aspects of the design process.

Key Features:

  • Includes an instructor’s manual hosted on the ebook’s companion website
  • Practical rules-of-thumb are included in the text as ‘Practical Notes’ to emphasize their importance in current practice and provide additional information
  • Shows how industrial equipment and systems are designed, covering the fundamental theory and practical application of thermo-fluid system design

NOTE: The product only includes the ebook, Introduction to Thermo-Fluids Systems Design in PDF. No access codes are included.
