Principles of Heat Transfer

Cengage Learning, 10 juin 2010 - 696 pages
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.

À propos de l'auteur (2010)

Dr. Frank Kreith was Professor Emeritus in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Colorado in Boulder. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Science from the University of Paris in 1965. He was a member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), a Fellow and Honorary Member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and recipient of the ASME Medal. His areas of interest included heat transfer, thermal engineering, and solar engineering. He was a consultant in the field of heat transfer engineering in many parts of the world. The ASME International established "The Frank Kreith Energy Award" in 2005 in recognition of his contributions to the field of renewable energy and heat transfer.

Dr. Raj. M. Manglik is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and a senior member of both the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). He has received many honors and recognitions for seminal research, teaching and educational enterprise, and professional engineering service. His areas of interest are enhancement of heat transfer, interfacial and transport phenomena, and thermal science and energy engineering. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Enhanced Heat Transfer.

Dr. Mark S. Bohn is the former vice president of engineering, president of Rentech Services Corporation, and co-founder of Rentech, Inc.
