Heat Transfer Principles and Applications (PDF) is a welcome change from more encyclopedic volumes exploring heat transfer. This shorter textbook fully explains the fundamentals of heat transfer; including heat convection; radiation; heat conduction; and heat exchangers. The fundamentals are then applied to a variety of engineering examples; including topics of special and current interest like solar collectors; cooling of electronic equipment; and energy conservation in buildings. The textbook covers both numerical and analytical solutions to heat transfer problems and makes considerable use of MATLAB® and Excel in the solutions. Every chapter has several example problems and a large; but not overwhelming; number of end-of-chapter problems.
- Extensive use of Excel and Matlab
- Includes a chapter on mass transfer
- Includes both analytical and numerical solutions of heat transfer problems
- A medium-sized textbook providing a thorough treatment of heat transfer fundamentals
- Includes a unique chapter of multimode problems to enhance the students’ problem-solving skills.
Minimal information is given in the problem statements. College students must determine the relevant modes of heat transfer (convection; conduction; radiation) and; using the earlier chapters; must determine the appropriate solution technique. For example; they must decide whether the problem is steady-state or transient. They must determine the applicable convection coefficients and material properties. They must decide which solution approach (e. g.; numerical or analytical) is appropriate.
