About

Overview

PRINCIPLES OF HEAT TRANSFER was first published in 1959, and since then it has grown to be considered a classic within the field, setting the standards for coverage and organization within all other Heat Transfer texts. The book is designed for a one-semester course in heat transfer at the junior or senior level, however, flexibility in pedagogy has been provided. Following several recommendations of the ASME Committee on Heat Transfer Education, Kreith, Manglik, and Bohn present relevant and stimulating content in this fresh and comprehensive approach to heat transfer, acknowledging that in today's world classical mathematical solutions to heat transfer problems are often less influential than computational analysis. This acknowledgement is met with the emphasize that students must still learn to appreciate both the physics and the elegance of simple mathematics in addressing complex phenomena, aiming at presenting the principles of heat transfer both within the framework of classical mathematics and empirical correlations.

Features and Benefits

  • Addresses the rapid and pervasive changes in technology, applications, analysis tools, and the economy, and their relation to the principles of heat transfer.
  • Presents an appreciation for both the physics and the elegance of simple mathematics in addressing complex phenomena while emphasizing the importance of analysis by means of computers.
  • Uses open-ended problems to illustrate practical applications of heat transfer with problem statements similar to those faced by practicing engineers.
  • Teaches methods for approaching real-world problems such as describing problems in your own words, providing schematic descriptions, indicating known and unknown variables, making judicious engineering decisions on the approach of a solution, etc.
