Heat Convectionby Latif M. Jiji
Synopses & Reviews
Jiji's extensive understanding of how students think and learn, what they find difficult, and which elements need to be stressed is integrated in this work. He employs an organization and methodology derived from his experience and presents the material in an easy to follow form, using graphical illustrations and examples for maximum effect. The second, enlarged edition provides the reader with a thorough introduction to external turbulent flows, written by Glen Thorncraft. Additional highlights of note: Illustrative examples are used to demonstrate the application of principles and the construction of solutions. Solutions follow an orderly approach used in all examples. Systematic problem-solving methodology emphasizes logical thinking, assumptions, approximations, application of principles and verification of results. Chapter summaries help students review the material. Guidelines for solving each problem can be selectively given to students. An extensive solution manual for teachers is available on request .
This book covers the fundamentals, physical phenomena and mathematical modeling of a wide range of engineering applications. It presents the material in an easy to follow form, using graphical illustrations and examples for maximum effect.
Latif M. Jiji is the Herbert G. Kayser Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the City College of the City University of New York. Besides his scientific expertise he has won several awards during his 50 years of teaching including The City College "Outstanding Teacher Award".
