Most heat transfer texts include the same material: conduction, convection, and radiation. How the material is presented, how well the author writes the explanatory and descriptive material, and the number and quality of practice problems is what makes the difference. Even more important, however, is how students receive the text. Engineering Heat Transfer, Third Edition provides a solid foundation in the principles of heat transfer, while strongly emphasizing practical applications and keeping mathematics to a minimum. New in the Third Edition: Coverage of the emerging areas of microscale, nanoscale, and biomedical heat transfer Simplification of derivations of Navier Stokes in fluid mechanics Moved boundary flow layer problems to the flow past immersed bodies chapter Revised and additional problems, revised and new examples PDF files of the Solutions Manual available on a chapter-by-chapter basis The text covers practical applications in a way that de-emphasizes mathematical techniques, but preserves physical interpretation of heat transfer fundamentals and modeling of heat transfer phenomena. For example, in the analysis of fins, actual finned cylinders were cut apart, fin dimensions were measures, and presented for analysis in example problems and in practice problems. The chapter introducing convection heat transfer describes and presents the traditional coffee pot problem practice problems. The chapter on convection heat transfer in a closed conduit gives equations to model the flow inside an internally finned duct. The end-of-chapter problems proceed from short and simple confidence builders to difficult and lengthy problems that exercise hard core problems solving ability. Now in its third edition, this text continues to fulfill the author’s original goal: to write a readable, user-friendly text that provides practical examples without overwhelming the student. Using drawings, sketches, and graphs, this textbook does just that. PDF files of the Solutions Manual are available upon qualifying course adoptions.
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. 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
Intended as a textbook for undergraduate courses in heat transfer for students of mechanical, chemical, aeronautical, and metallurgical engineering, or as a reference for professionals in industry, this book emphasizes the clear understanding of theoretical concepts followed by practical applications. Treating each subject analytically and then numerically, it provides step-by-step solutions of numerical problems through the use of systematic procedures by a prescribed format. With more than a million users in industry, MATLAB is the most popular computing programming language among engineers. This Second Edition has been updated to include discussions on how to develop programs that solve heat transfer problems using MATLAB, which allows the student to rapidly develop programs that involve complex numerical and engineering heat transfer computations.
Heat transfer is involved in numerous industrial technologies. This interdisciplinary book comprises 16 chapters dealing with combined action of heat transfer and concomitant processes. Five chapters of its first section discuss heat effects due to laser, ion and plasma-solid interaction. In eight chapters of the second section engineering applications of heat conduction equations to the curing reaction kinetics in manufacturing process, their combination with mass transport or ohmic and dielectric losses, heat conduction in metallic porous media and power cables are considered. Analysis of the safety of mine hoist under influence of heat produced by mechanical friction, heat transfer in boilers and internal combustion engine chambers, management for ultrahigh strength steel manufacturing are described in this section as well. Three chapters of the last third section are devoted to air cooling of electronic devices.

Hydrodynamics, Mass and Heat Transfer in Chemical Engineering contains a concise and systematic exposition of fundamental problems of hydrodynamics, heat and mass transfer, and physicochemical hydrodynamics, which constitute the theoretical basis of chemical engineering in science. Areas covered include: fluid flows; processes of chemical engineering; mass and heat transfer in plane channels, tubes and fluid films; problems of mass and heat transfer; the motion and mass exchange of power-law and viscoplastic fluids through tubes, channels, and films; and the basic concepts and properties of very specific technological media, namely foam systems. Topics are arranged in increasing order of difficulty, with each section beginning with a brief physical and mathematical statement of the problem considered, followed by final results, usually given for the desired variables in the form of final relationships and tables.
This broad-based book covers the three major areas of Chemical Engineering. Most of the books in the market involve one of the individual areas, namely, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer or Mass Transfer, rather than all the three. This book presents this material in a single source. This avoids the user having to refer to a number of books to obtain information. Most published books covering all the three areas in a single source emphasize theory rather than practical issues. This book is written with emphasis on practice with brief theoretical concepts in the form of questions and answers, not adopting stereo-typed question-answer approach practiced in certain books in the market, bridging the two areas of theory and practice with respect to the core areas of chemical engineering. Most parts of the book are easily understandable by those who are not experts in the field. Fluid Mechanics chapters include basics on non-Newtonian systems which, for instance find importance in polymer and food processing, flow through piping, flow measurement, pumps, mixing technology and fluidization and two phase flow. For example it covers types of pumps and valves, membranes and areas of their use, different equipment commonly used in chemical industry and their merits and drawbacks. Heat Transfer chapters cover the basics involved in conduction, convection and radiation, with emphasis on insulation, heat exchangers, evaporators, condensers, reboilers and fired heaters. Design methods, performance, operational issues and maintenance problems are highlighted. Topics such as heat pipes, heat pumps, heat tracing, steam traps, refrigeration, cooling of electronic devices, NOx control find place in the book. Mass transfer chapters cover basics such as diffusion, theories, analogies, mass transfer coefficients and mass transfer with chemical reaction, equipment such as tray and packed columns, column internals including structural packings, design, operational and installation issues, drums and separators are discussed in good detail. Absorption, distillation, extraction and leaching with applications and design methods, including emerging practices involving Divided Wall and Petluk column arrangements, multicomponent separations, supercritical solvent extraction find place in the book.
This book provides engineers with the tools to solve real-world heat transfer problems. It includes advanced topics not covered in other books on the subject. The examples are complex and timely problems that are inherently interesting. It integrates Maple, MATLAB, FEHT, and Engineering Equation Solver (EES) directly with the heat transfer material.
Equips students with the essential knowledge, skills, and confidence to solve real-world heat transfer problems using EES, MATLAB, and FEHT.
