    Thermal and Fluids Systems Six-Minute Problems, 3rd Edition

    Problems and Detailed Solutions for Comprehensive Exam Prep

    Up-to-date to the NCEES exam specifications and codes*, this book now contains 100 multiple-choice problems representative of the NCEES PE Mechanical Thermal and Fluids Systems exam, format, scope of topics, and level of difficulty. Comprehensive step-by-step solutions for all problems demonstrate accurate and efficient solving approaches to be used on exam day. PPI’s time-tested, detailed instructional design provides you with the most efficient and effective practice available.

    Thermal and Fluid Systems Six-Minute Problems, Third Edition (METSSX3) topics include:

    • Principles

    • Hydraulic and Fluid Applications

    • Energy/Power System Applications

    *NCEES does not specify which codes and standards the PE Mechanical Thermal and Fluids Systems exam will use. It is likely that the codes and standards needed are not affected by the differences from one edition to the next.

    Pair these problems with the Thermal & Fluids Systems Reference Manual and Practice Exams for a comprehensive review.

    Solution methods inconsistent with NCEES Reference Handbook Review by Jonathan
    The principals and formulas used to solve problems are not included in the NCEES Reference Handbook which is what is provided to you on the day of the exam by Pearson. Ex. To solve a problem regarding heat loss in a fin, it uses the Circular Fin method from the Lindeburge MERM. The NCEES Reference Handbook only provides the Finite Cylindrical Fin formula. So if you solve the problem using the reference book, you come up with a completely difference answer, but the correct answer because my method of solving the problem matched the finite example in the Lindeburge MERM. A lot of problems reference charts and properties of materials that are not provided in the reference manual. Essentially, if you try to study using the reference book provided to you during the actual day of the test to get familiar with it to solve these problems, you'll never be able to solve them. I've spent an hour or more trying to solve too many problems using only the material provided in the NCEES manual, hopelessly searching for coefficients of heat that don't exist, using formulas that don't come up with any answers close to the available answers, just to discover the solution uses formulas and properties not provided in the NCEES manual. This needs to be updated to reflect the NCEES manual, not the Lindeburg MERM. (Posted on 6/2/2020)
