Description

Heat Transfer Engineering: Fundamentals and Techniques reviews the core mechanisms of heat transfer and provides modern methods to solve practical problems encountered by working practitioners, with a particular focus on developing engagement and motivation. The book reviews fundamental concepts in conduction, forced convection, free convection, boiling, condensation, heat exchangers and mass transfer succinctly and without unnecessary exposition. Throughout, copious examples drawn from current industrial practice are examined with an emphasis on problem-solving for interest and insight rather than the procedural approaches often adopted in courses. The book contains numerous important solved and unsolved problems, utilizing modern tools and computational sources wherever relevant. A subsection on common issues and recent advances is presented in each chapter, encouraging the reader to explore a greater diversity of problems.

Key Features

  • Reveals physical solutions alongside their application in practical problems, with an aim of generating interest from reality rather than dry exposition
  • Reviews pertinent, contemporary computational tools, including emerging topics such as machine learning
  • Describes the complexity of modern heat transfer in an engaging and conversational style, greatly adding to the uniqueness and accessibility of the book

Readership

Senior undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical, aerospace, chemical and thermal engineering programs. Practicing engineers and early career researchers working with industrial aspects of heat and mass transfer (particularly in electronics, automobile, HVAC, aerospace, manufacturing industries
