Description

Advances in Heat Transfer is designed to fill the information gap between the regularly scheduled journals and university level textbooks, allowing for in-depth review articles on a broader scope than is allowable in either journals or texts.

Key Features

@introbul:Key Features @bul:* Reviews recent work on melt lubrication at the interface between two solid parts, one of which is at its melting point * Employs variational principle with vanishing parameter in the study of linear and nonlinear transient heat conduction through bodies of finite length * Reviews heat transfer in porous media and its rapidly growing body of literature * Emphasizes recent developments in handling complex geometry, treating wide flow speed variations, yielding accurate solutions, and producing results efficiently as illustrated throughout with many examples * Discusses unsteady convective situations which are generated in response to the time-dependent boundary conditions on the surface walls of a container, and its practical industrial applications

Readership

Mechanical, chemical, and civil engineers in research, graduate school, and industry.
