Description

The most comprehensive and detailed treatment of thermal radiation heat transfer available for graduate students, as well as senior undergraduate students, practicing engineers and physicists is enhanced by an excellent writing style with nice historical highlights and a clear and consistent notation throughout. Modest presents radiative heat transfer and its interactions with other modes of heat transfer in a coherent and integrated manner emphasizing the fundamentals. Numerous worked examples, a large number of problems, many based on real world situations, and an up-to-date bibliography make the book especially suitable for independent study. Instructors solutions are available via website to qualified users.

Reviews

Jennifer X. Wen, Kingston University, UK: "This book can simply be summed up as the 'bible' for thermal radiation and its calculation methods." "I expect to see it on the bookshelf of every university and major research laboratory." "Because of the level of details the book has gone into in each specific topic, this book will be especially suitable for occasions where students are expected to read extensively outside the classroom as part of the syllabus." Andrei Fedorov, Georgia Tech: "The book is up-to-date and provides excellent coverage." "Excellent writing style with nice historical highlights. The most important asset of the book is its clear and consistent notation used throughout the manuscript. It is probably the most comprehensive treatment of the topic that is currently in existence. It has up-to-date bibliography and very sound treatment of electromagnetism foundation of thermal radiation." Peter Wong, Tufts University: "Modest has compiled together a comprehensive and detailed understanding in thermal radiative heat transfer for graduate students and practicing engineers." Yildiz Bayazitoglu, Rice University: "Very much up to date and has a good selection of topics." "Comprehensive, detailed, but simplified." "The author presented the radiative heat transfer and its interactions with other modes of heat transfer in a coherent and integrated manner emphasizing the fundamentals...The book is directed towards the graduate level students as well as towards the scientists and engineers already engaged in subject matter."
