When compared to other works on heat transfer that take an encyclopedic approach, Heat Transfer Principles and Applications (PDF) offers a refreshing departure. This more concise textbook presents an in-depth analysis of the principles of heat transfer, including topics such as heat convection, heat radiation, heat conduction, and heat exchangers. After that, the fundamentals are applied to a range of other engineering situations, such as solar collectors, the cooling of electronic equipment, and energy conservation in buildings. The textbook provides both analytical and numerical answers to issues pertaining to heat transfer, and it makes extensive use of MATLAB® and Excel in the process of resolving these issues. In each chapter, there are a few problems that serve as examples, as well as a sizeable number of problems that are meant to be completed before moving on to the next chapter.
- Excel and Matlab are utilized extensively.
- Included is a section on the transfer of mass.
- Contains both analytical and numerical approaches to solving problems with heat transfer.
- A textbook around the size of a coffee table that covers the foundations of heat transmission in great detail.
- Included is a one-of-a-kind chapter of problems with multiple solutions that can help pupils become better problem solvers.
In the problem statements, just a limited amount of information is provided. Students in higher education are required to identify the relevant modes of heat transmission (convection, conduction, and radiation) and, utilizing the prior chapters, select the suitable solution technique. For instance, they have to figure out whether the issue is in a steady condition or if it is temporary. They are tasked with calculating the relevant convection coefficients in addition to the material properties. They have to pick which strategy to finding a solution (such as analytical or numerical) is the most appropriate.
