Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
