Engineers face many challenges in systems design and research. Modeling and Approximation in Heat Transfer describes the approach to engineering solutions through simplified modeling of the most important physical features and approximating their behavior. Systematic discussion of how modeling and associated synthesis can be carried out is included - in engineering practice, these steps very often precede mathematical analysis or the need for precise results.Read more
- Methodology is kept straightforward wherever possible, beginning with simple estimates to identify which features are most important
- Examples and homework problems break down challenging engineering systems into simplified thermal models, preparing students for real-world design and research
- Modeling is stressed in physical terms, taking students beyond the classical formulations
