Publisher Comments:

Enables the reader to advance from heat transfer principles to real-world industrial applications

It is hard to imagine an area of study in engineering and/or science for which a basic knowledge and understanding of heat transfer is not an integral part of the discipline. Written at a level that is understandable to both students and practitioners, Heat Transfer Applications for the Practicing Engineer takes a highly pragmatic approach to this important topic. The book's coverage is thorough, its presentation is logical, and it addresses students' needs as well as the needs of the practicing professional.

Although geared towards chemical, mechanical, civil, and environmental engineers working on real-world industrial applications, applied scientists will also find the text a useful reference.

The book is divided into four parts. Part I addresses basic engineering principles. Part II is concerned with heat transfer fundamentals, particularly as they apply to conduction, convection, and radiation. Part III extends the material presented earlier to real-world heat transfer applications. Part IV provides ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) material from a heat transfer perspective. The text features:

  • Coverage of topics from the ground up for those readers with little to no background in heat transfer

  • Clear, precise explanations on how to carry out calculations associated with heat transfer

  • Bridges the gap between heat transfer theory and practice

  • Provides specific heat exchange operation, maintenance, and inspection (OH&I) details

  • Presents "rules of thumb" suggestions for heat exchanger design and predictive purposes

  • Nearly 300 illustrative examples

  • Material that prepares one for the professional engineer's exam

  • Additional problems on a Wiley website; solutions to these problems plus exams are available for those who adopt the text

Readers will gain a solid working knowledge of heat transfer fundamentals, principles, and applications upon completion of this text, and be better prepared to pass the professional engineer's exam, address more advanced material, and solve more complex problems.

Book News Annotation:

Consultant, former educator, and author Theodore has written a four-part text on heat transfer fundamentals, applications, and principles for both professional engineers and students. Among the variety of topics addresses are: a history of heat transfer, process variables, conservation and gas laws, steady-state heat conduction, forced and free convection, radiation, refrigeration and cryogenics, double pipe and shell and tube heat exchangers, entropy considerations and analysis, design principles and industrial applications, environmental management, ethics, and economics and finance.

Synopsis:

This book serves as a training tool for individuals in industry and academia involved with heat transfer applications. Although the literature is inundated with texts emphasizing theory and theoretical derivations, the goal of this book is to present the subject of heat transfer from a strictly pragmatic point of view.

The book is divided into four Parts: Introduction, Principles, Equipment Design Procedures and Applications, and ABET-related Topics. The first Part provides a series of chapters concerned with introductory topics that are required when solving most engineering problems, including those in heat transfer. The second Part of the book is concerned with heat transfer principles. Topics that receive treatment include Steady-state Heat Conduction, Unsteady-state Heat Conduction, Forced Convection, Free Convection, Radiation, Boiling and Condensation, and Cryogenics. Part three (considered the heart of the book) addresses heat transfer equipment design procedures and applications. In addition to providing a detailed treatment of the various types of heat exchangers, this part also examines the impact of entropy calculations on exchanger design, and operation, maintenance and inspection (OM&I), plus refractory and insulation effects. The concluding Part of the text examines ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) related topics of concern, including economies and finance, numerical methods, open-ended problems, ethics, environmental management, and safety and accident management.

About the Author

Louis Theodore EngScD, a professor of chemical engineering for fifty years, is the author of many Wiley books, including Fluid Flow for the Practicing Chemical Engineer, Thermodynamics for the Practicing Engineer, and Mass Transfer Operations for the Practicing Engineer. He is also a contributor and Section Editor to Perry's Chemical Engineers' Handbook and coauthor of Introduction to Hazardous Waste Incineration, Second Edition, which is also published by Wiley. Dr. Theodore is currently a consultant to Theodore Tutorials, located in East Williston, New York.
