Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Chemical Engineering" called Levenspiel's book "The best introductory text on fluid mechanics and heat transfer". This practical volume on the design of heat transfer equipment is an excellent introduction to real-world applications and an indispensable reference guide. Each chapter contains illustrative examples from a wide variety of industrial uses, detailed design charts, and problems.

Book News Annotation:

Presents an overview of fluid flow and heat exchange, with coverage of areas beyond Newtonian fluid flow. Concentrates on different ways of transferring heat from one stream to another, with less emphasis on mathematics. Contains sections on flow of fluids and mixtures, and heat exchange, and includes a wide variety of problems, some whimsical, and other directly from industrial applications. For an undergraduate course in engineering or applied fluids and heat transfer, after principles have been introduced in a basic engineering course such as transport phenomena.
