Heat Transfer

Heat Transfer Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The careful ordering of topics in each chapter leads readers gradually from introductory concepts to advanced material, eliminating roadblocks to developing solid engineering problem-solving skills. Mathematical concepts are reviewed on as needed basis refreshing memories, and the computational software integrated with the book allows them to obtain reliable numerical results. The integrated coverage of design principles and the wide variety of exercises based on current heat and mass transfer technologies encourage the reader to think like an engineer.

FEATURES

  • NEW — Includes 300 new exercises.
  • Material carefully arranged in each chapter so that the simplest concepts are presented first, progressing to more complex material.
  • Essential details of classical mathematics are presented as needed, to refresh and reinforce math skills.
  • Current material on refrigerants is included— exercises and property tables have been updated with R-22 and R-134a.
  • Design principles are fully integrated—including thermalhydraulic design of exchangers and the economic considerations. These real-world applications better prepare readers to solve the problems they will face in their careers.
    • Includes thermal hydraulic design of exchanges.
    • Focus on economic consideration of design.
  • Free software enables users to perform parametric calculations with links, when appropriate, directly from property data in the appendices. Available at www.prenhall.com/mills
  • Over 1,000 exercises - including over 300 new exercises are in this edition.
    • Reinforcing exercises are designed to help students understand fundamental concepts.
    • Applied exercises encourage users to use heat transfer concepts in real world situations.

Book News Annotation:

A text for undergraduates in mechanical, aerospace, nuclear, and chemical engineering programs. Emphasis is on engineering calculations, and there is more material on heat exchanger design than in comparable texts. This second edition contains some 300 new exercises. A software package is available from the publisher's web site. Students should have background in the usual lower-division mathematics and science courses, as well as introductory courses in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics and a junior-level engineering mathematics course.
