This is a special enhanced package of the text, Thermal-Fluid Sciences combined with the new second edition DVD of the Homsy et. al. Multimedia Fluid Mechanics. Thermal-Fluid Sciences is a truly integrated textbook for an engineering course covering thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics. The integration of the text is based on: * The fundamental conservation principles of mass, energy, and momentum * An hierarchical grouping of related topics * The early introduction and revisiting of practical device examples and applications The focus is on accuracy and pedagogy. To enhance learning Thermal-Fluid Sciences features full color illustrations. The robust pedagogy includes: chapter learning objectives, overviews, historical vignettes, numerous examples following a consistent problem-solving format enhanced by innovative self tests. 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.
