Most of the texts on heat transfer available in recent years have focused on the mathematics of the subject, typically at an advanced level. Engineers 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 work 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.
