Completely updated, the sixth edition provides engineers with an in-depth look at the key concepts in the field. It incorporates new discussions on emerging areas of heat transfer, discussing technologies that are related to nanotechnology, biomedical engineering and alternative energy. The example problems are also updated to better show how to apply the material. And as engineers follow the rigorous and systematic problem-solving methodology, they'll gain an appreciation for the richness and beauty of the discipline.

This book presents a comprehensive treatment of the essential fundamentals of the topics that should be taught as the first-level course in Heat Transfer to the students of engineering disciplines. The book is designed to stimulate student learning through clear, concise language. The theoretical content is well balanced with the problem-solving methodology necessary for developing an orderly approach to solving a variety of engineering problems. The book provides adequate mathematical rigour to help students achieve a sound understanding of the physical processes involved. Key Features : A well-balanced coverage between analytical treatments, physical concepts and practical demonstrations. Analytical descriptions of theories pertaining to different modes of heat transfer by the application of conservation equations to control volume and also by the application of conservation equations in differential form like continuity equation, Navier–Stokes equations and energy equation. A short description of convective heat transfer based on physical understanding and practical applications without going into mathematical analyses (Chapter 5). A comprehensive description of the principles of convective heat transfer based on mathematical foundation of fluid mechanics with generalized analytical treatments (Chapters 6, 7 and 8). A separate chapter describing the basic mechanisms and principles of mass transfer showing the development of mathematical formulations and finding the solution of simple mass transfer problems. A summary at the end of each chapter to highlight key terminologies and concepts and important formulae developed in that chapter. A number of worked-out examples throughout the text, review questions, and exercise problems (with answers) at the end of each chapter. This book is appropriate for a one-semester course in Heat Transfer for undergraduate engineering students pursuing careers in mechanical, metallurgical, aerospace and chemical disciplines.

Presenting the basic mechanisms for transfer of heat, this book gives a deeper and more comprehensive view than existing titles on the subject. Derivation and presentation of analytical and empirical methods are provided for calculation of heat transfer rates and temperature fields as well as pressure drop. The book covers thermal conduction, forced and natural laminar and turbulent convective heat transfer, thermal radiation including participating media, condensation, evaporation and heat exchangers. This book is aimed to be used in both undergraduate and graduate courses in heat transfer and thermal engineering. It can successfully be used in R & D work and thermal engineering design in industry and by consultancy firms

An Introduction to Heat Transfer Principles and Calculations is an introductory text to the principles and calculations of heat transfer. The theory underlying heat transfer is described, and the principal results and formulae are presented. Available techniques for obtaining rapid, approximate solutions to complicated problems are also considered. This book is comprised of 12 chapters and begins with a brief account of some of the concepts, methods, nomenclature, and other relevant information about heat transfer. The reader is then introduced to radiation, conduction, convection, and boiling and condensation. Problems involving more than one mode of heat transfer are presented. Some of the factors influencing the selection of heat exchangers are also discussed. The remaining chapters focus on mass transfer and its simultaneous occurrence with heat transfer; the air-water vapor system, with emphasis on humidity and enthalpy as well as wet-bulb temperature, adiabatic saturation temperature, cooling by evaporation, drying, and condensation; and physical properties and other information that must be taken into account before any generalized formula for heat or mass transfer can be applied to a specific problem. This monograph will be of value to mechanical engineers, physicists, and mathematicians.

This highly recommended book on transport phenomena shows readers how to develop mathematical representations (models) of physical phenomena. The key elements in model development involve assumptions about the physics, the application of basic physical principles, the exploration of the implications of the resulting model, and the evaluation of the degree to which the model mimics reality. This book also expose readers to the wide range of technologies where their skills may be applied.

Most heat transfer texts include the same material: conduction, convection, and radiation. How the material is presented, how well the author writes the explanatory and descriptive material, and the number and quality of practice problems is what makes the difference. Even more important, however, is how students receive the text. Engineering Heat Transfer, Third Edition provides a solid foundation in the principles of heat transfer, while strongly emphasizing practical applications and keeping mathematics to a minimum. New in the Third Edition: Coverage of the emerging areas of microscale, nanoscale, and biomedical heat transfer Simplification of derivations of Navier Stokes in fluid mechanics Moved boundary flow layer problems to the flow past immersed bodies chapter Revised and additional problems, revised and new examples PDF files of the Solutions Manual available on a chapter-by-chapter basis The text covers practical applications in a way that de-emphasizes mathematical techniques, but preserves physical interpretation of heat transfer fundamentals and modeling of heat transfer phenomena. For example, in the analysis of fins, actual finned cylinders were cut apart, fin dimensions were measures, and presented for analysis in example problems and in practice problems. The chapter introducing convection heat transfer describes and presents the traditional coffee pot problem practice problems. The chapter on convection heat transfer in a closed conduit gives equations to model the flow inside an internally finned duct. The end-of-chapter problems proceed from short and simple confidence builders to difficult and lengthy problems that exercise hard core problems solving ability. Now in its third edition, this text continues to fulfill the author’s original goal: to write a readable, user-friendly text that provides practical examples without overwhelming the student. Using drawings, sketches, and graphs, this textbook does just that. PDF files of the Solutions Manual are available upon qualifying course adoptions.

This introduction to heat transfer offers advanced undergraduate and graduate engineering students a solid foundation in the subjects of conduction, convection, radiation, and phase-change, in addition to the related topic of mass transfer. A staple of engineering courses around the world for more than three decades, it has been revised and updated regularly by the authors, a pair of recognized experts in the field. The text addresses the implications, limitations, and meanings of many aspects of heat transfer, connecting the subject to its real-world applications and developing students' insight into related phenomena. Three introductory chapters form a minicourse in heat transfer, covering all of the subjects discussed in detail in subsequent chapters. This unique and effective feature introduces heat exchangers early in the development, rather than at the end. The authors also present a novel and simplified method for dimensional analysis, and they capitalize on the similarity of natural convection and film condensation to develop these two topics in a parallel manner. Worked examples and end-of-chapter exercises appear throughout the book, along with well-drawn, illuminating figures.
