Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To be successful in the international marketplace, corporations must have access to the latest developments and most recent experimental data. Traditional handbooks of heat transfer stress fundamental principles, analytical approaches to thermal problems, and elegant solutions to classical problems. The CRC Handbook of Thermal Engineering is not a traditional handbook. Engineers in industry need up-to-date, accessible information on the applications of heat and mass transfer-The CRC Handbook of Thermal Engineering provides it.

Peer reviewed articles-selected on the basis of their current relevance to the development of new products-provide in-depth treatment of applications in diverse fields, such as:

Bioengineering

Desalination

Electronics

Energy conservation

Food processing

Measurement techniques in fluid flow and heat transfer

You'll find complete, up-to-date information on the latest development in the field, including:

Recent advances in thermal sciences

Microthermal design

Compact heat exchangers

Thermal optimization

Exergy analysis

A unique, one-stop resource for all your thermal engineering questions

From the basics of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat and mass transfer, to comprehensive treatment of current applications, the latest computational tools, to data tables for the properties of gases, liquids, and solids, The CRC Handbook of Thermal Engineering has it all

Book News Annotation:

Unlike traditional handbooks of heat transfer, this book provides information on specific topics of current interest in a form that is accessible to the average engineer in industry. The first three sections contain background information on specific principles of engineering thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat and mass transfer. The bulk of the book is devoted to applications in thermal design and analysis, as well as to computer solutions of heat transfer and thermal engineering problems. The applications have been selected on the basis of their current relevance to the development of new products in fields such as food processing, energy conservation, and bioengineering. Kreith is ASME Legislative Fellow for Energy and Environment at the National Conference of State Legislatures.
