The single objective of this book is to provide engineers with the capability, tools, and confidence to solve real-world heat transfer problems. It includes many advanced topics, such as Bessel functions, Laplace transforms, separation of variables, Duhamel's theorem, and complex combination, as well as high order explicit and implicit numerical integration algorithms. These analytical and numerical solution methods are applied to topics not considered in most textbooks. Examples are heat exchangers involving fluids with varying specific heats or phase changes; heat exchangers in which axial conduction is a concern; and regenerators. To improve readability, derivations of important results are presented completely, without skipping steps, which reduces student frustration and improves retention. The examples in the book are ubiquitous, not trivial “textbook” exercises. They are rather complex and timely real-world problems that are inherently interesting. This textbook integrates the computational software packages Maple, MATLAB, FEHT, and Engineering Equation Solver (EES) directly with the heat transfer material.Read more

"This is a very interesting and important new textbook on heat transfer... significantly raises the bar for heat transfer text books...a major contribution to education in the field of heat transfer."- Ralph L. Webb, Penn State University, Heat Transfer EngineeringSee more reviews
"...this is a very good heat transfer book with a lot of emphasis on use of computational methods. The authors did a very good job incorporating computations side-by-side with the theory. This is a suitable textbook for first- and second-level courses, where the instructor wants to use computational tools, as well as a reference book for practicing engineers." - Kemal Tuzla, Lehigh University, ChE Dvision of ASEE

I started to teach heat transfer for the 1st year French Engineer school students this year, equivalent to the 3rd year engineer students in US or in China. I got one copy when I was in the APS DFD Annual meeting 2013 in Pittsburgh. This book is really a good starting point for the students who had no knowledge about heat transfer. It contains a lot of examples, with detailed software scrpts. Students just need to folow the steps and can get the correct results. It is very good for self-learning as well. On the other side, this book contains all the essential points on heat transfer. It goes beyond some tranditional books on heat transfer. So it suits for graduate students as well. Even as a researcher or senoir engineer, we can use it as a manual, when we need to consult some basic concepts and classic examples. I recommanded this book for all my students.See all reviews
