Synopsis

The analysis of thermofluids is based around forces and energy: this is how fluids interact with other fluids and solids as part of their environment. A consequence of every process is an increase in the chaos in the universe; the implications for this in engineering systems are explored. The effects of friction on subsonic fluid flow are investigated, while the nature of heat transfer transmitted by solids and fluids is explored in detail for practical situations.
