This book is one of the few sources available that addresses the recommendations of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology for new courses in design engineering.
Intended for classroom use as well as self-study, the text provides a review of fundamental concepts, extensive reference lists, end-of-chapter problem sets, helpful appendices, and a comprehensive case study assault course 2 games that is followed throughout the text.
Supported by extensive reference lists, end-of-chapter problem sets, and helpful appendices, this is a superb text for both the classroom and self-study, and for use in industrial design, development, and research.
Opening with a concise review of fundamentals, it develops design methods within a framework of industrial applications that gradually increase in complexity.These applications include, among others, power generation by large and small systems, and cryogenic systems for the manufacturing, chemical, and food processing industries.This unique book draws on the best contemporary thinking about design and design methodology, including discussions of concurrent design and quality function deployment.This book broadens the scope of engineering design by placing a strong emphasis on engineering economics, system simulation, and optimization techniques.Contents include: * Introduction to Thermal System Design * Thermodynamics, Modeling, and Design Analysis * Exergy Analysis * Heat Transfer, Modeling, and Design Analysis * Applications with Heat and Fluid Flow * Applications with Thermodynamics and Heat and Fluid Flow * Economic Analysis * Thermoeconomic.The methods of exergy analysis, entropy generation minimization, and thermoeconomics are incorporated in an evolutionary manner.
A comprehensive and rigorous introduction to thermal system design from a contemporary perspective.
In addition, Thermal Design and Optimization is one of the best new sources available for meeting the recommendations of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology for more design emphasis in engineering curricula.Thermal Design and Optimization offers readers a lucid introduction to the latest methodologies for the design of thermal systems and emphasizes engineering economics, system simulation, and optimization methods.Unlike traditional books that are largely oriented toward design analysis and components, this forward-thinking book aligns itself with an increasing number of active designers who believe that more effective, system-oriented design methods are needed.A detailed solutions manual is available from the publisher.To demonstrate the application of important design principles introduced, a single case study involving the design of a cogeneration system is followed throughout the book.Thermal Design and Optimization offers a lucid presentation of thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics as they are applied to the design of thermal systems.
