Description

Advances in Heat Transfer fills the information gap between regularly scheduled journals and university-level textbooks by providing in-depth review articles over a broader scope than in traditional journals or texts.

The articles, which serve as a broad review for experts in the field are also of great interest to non-specialists who need to keep up-to-date with the results of the latest research.

This serial is essential reading for all mechanical, chemical, and industrial engineers working in the field of heat transfer, or in graduate schools or industry.

Key Features

  • Compiles the expert opinions of leaders in the industry
  • Fills the information gap between regularly scheduled journals and university-level textbooks by providing in-depth review articles over a broader scope than in traditional journals or texts
  • Essential reading for all mechanical, chemical, and industrial engineers working in the field of heat transfer, or in graduate schools or industry

Readership

Practitioners in industry and academics teaching advanced courses.
