A Heat Transfer Textbook: Fourth Edition (Dover Civil and by John H Lienhard

By John H Lienhard

This advent to warmth move bargains complex undergraduate and graduate engineering scholars an effective origin within the matters of conduction, convection, radiation, and phase-change, as well as the similar subject of mass move. A staple of engineering classes around the globe for greater than 3 a long time, it's been revised and up-to-date usually by way of the authors, a couple of famous specialists within the box. The textual content addresses the consequences, obstacles, and meanings of many points of warmth move, connecting the topic to its real-world purposes and constructing scholars' perception into similar phenomena. 3 introductory chapters shape a minicourse in warmth move, overlaying the entire matters mentioned intimately in next chapters. This designated and potent characteristic introduces warmth exchangers early within the improvement, instead of on the finish. The authors additionally current a singular and simplified approach for dimensional research, they usually capitalize at the similarity of common convection and movie condensation to advance those themes in a parallel demeanour. labored examples and end-of-chapter routines look in the course of the publication, besides well-drawn, illuminating figures.
