Table of Contents

Principles of Radiation: Thermal Radiation. Radiation Heat Transfer. Principles of Monte Carlo Methods: Formulation. Methods of Solution. Special Treatises. Applications of the Monte Carlo Method: Two-Dimensional Systems. Some Industrial Applications. References Applications on Disk. List of Variables in Computer Programs. Author Index. Subject Index.


This book presents the basic principles and applications of radiative heat transfer used in energy, space, and geo-environmental engineering, and can serve as a reference book for engineers and scientists in researchand development. A PC disk containing software for numerical analyses by the Monte Carlo method is included to provide hands-on practice in analyzing actual radiative heat transfer problems.

Advances in Heat Transfer is designed to fill the information gap between regularly scheduled journals and university level textbooks by providing in-depth review articles over a broader scope than journals or texts usually allow.

Key Features

  • Offers solution methods for integro-differential formulation to help avoid difficulties
  • Includes a computer disk for numerical analyses by PC
  • Discusses energy absorption by gas and scattering effects by particles
  • Treats non-gray radiative gases
  • Provides example problems for direct applications in energy, space, and geo-environmental engineering


Researchers and graduate students in mechanical, civil, and chemical engineering.
