A solid grounding in heat and power has long been a characteristic expected of mechanical engineers. This text deals with energy conversion topics that should be well understood by all mechanical engineers. It is intended for use in an introductory three-semester-hour course in energy conversion, to follow first courses in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics and, where possible, heat transfer.

Thermomechanics is a discipline which investigates the behavior of bodies under the action forces and heat input. Thermomechanical phenomena commonly occur in the human environment, from the action of solar radiation to the technological processes.
