Most of the texts on heat transfer available in recent years have focused on the mathematics of the subject, typically at an advanced level. Engineering students and engineers who have not moved immediately into graduate school need a reference that provides a strong, practical foundation in heat transfer-one that emphasizes real-world problems and helps develop their problem-solving skills. Engineering Heat Transfer fills that need. Extensively revised and thoroughly updated, the Second Edition of this popular text continues to de-emphasize high level mathematics in favor of effective, accurate modeling. A generous number of real-world examples amplify the theory and show how to use derived equations to model physical problems. Exercises that parallel the examples build readers' confidence and prepare them to effectively confront the more complex situations they encounter as professionals. Concise and user-friendly, Engineering Heat Transfer covers conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer in a manner that does not overwhelm the reader and is uniquely suited to the actual practice of engineering.

This introduction to heat transfer offers advanced undergraduate and graduate engineering students a solid foundation in the subjects of conduction, convection, radiation, and phase-change, in addition to the related topic of mass transfer. A staple of engineering courses around the world for more than three decades, it has been revised and updated regularly by the authors, a pair of recognized experts in the field. The text addresses the implications, limitations, and meanings of many aspects of heat transfer, connecting the subject to its real-world applications and developing students' insight into related phenomena. Three introductory chapters form a minicourse in heat transfer, covering all of the subjects discussed in detail in subsequent chapters. This unique and effective feature introduces heat exchangers early in the development, rather than at the end. The authors also present a novel and simplified method for dimensional analysis, and they capitalize on the similarity of natural convection and film condensation to develop these two topics in a parallel manner. Worked examples and end-of-chapter exercises appear throughout the book, along with well-drawn, illuminating figures.

Thoroughly updated to include the latest developments in the field, this classic text on finite-difference and finite-volume computational methods maintains the fundamental concepts covered in the first edition. As an introductory text for advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students, Computational Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer, Third Edition provides the background necessary for solving complex problems in fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Divided into two parts, the book first lays the groundwork for the essential concepts preceding the fluids equations in the second part. It includes expanded coverage of turbulence and large-eddy simulation (LES) and additional material included on detached-eddy simulation (DES) and direct numerical simulation (DNS). Designed as a valuable resource for practitioners and students, new homework problems have been added to further enhance the student’s understanding of the fundamentals and applications.

Heat exchangers are essential in a wide range of engineering applications, including power plants, automobiles, airplanes, process and chemical industries, and heating, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. Revised and updated with new problem sets and examples, Heat Exchangers: Selection, Rating, and Thermal Design, Third Edition presents a systematic treatment of the various types of heat exchangers, focusing on selection, thermal-hydraulic design, and rating. Topics discussed include: Classification of heat exchangers according to different criteria Basic design methods for sizing and rating of heat exchangers Single-phase forced convection correlations in channels Pressure drop and pumping power for heat exchangers and their piping circuit Design solutions for heat exchangers subject to fouling Double-pipe heat exchanger design methods Correlations for the design of two-phase flow heat exchangers Thermal design methods and processes for shell-and-tube, compact, and gasketed-plate heat exchangers Thermal design of condensers and evaporators This third edition contains two new chapters. Micro/Nano Heat Transfer explores the thermal design fundamentals for microscale heat exchangers and the enhancement heat transfer for applications to heat exchanger design with nanofluids. It also examines single-phase forced convection correlations as well as flow friction factors for microchannel flows for heat transfer and pumping power calculations. Polymer Heat Exchangers introduces an alternative design option for applications hindered by the operating limitations of metallic heat exchangers. The appendices provide the thermophysical properties of various fluids. Each chapter contains examples illustrating thermal design methods and procedures and relevant nomenclature. End-of-chapter problems enable students to test their assimilation of the material.
