Conjugate Problems in Convective Heat Transferby Abram S. Dorfman
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
The conjugate nature has always been an inherent feature of any heat transfer problem, says Dorfman (U. of Michigan-Ann Arbor), but it was only with the advent of computers that it could be investigated systematically. A specialist in fluid mechanics and heat transfer and a pioneer in research into the problem, he intended this book to be a kind of technical memoir of his work and the early development of the field since 1965, but found that he had to incorporate so much current material that the history is relegated to the first two chapters. After that, he focuses on modern theory and methods for heat transfer from arbitrary non-isothermal surfaces in laminar and turbulent flows, general properties of non-isothermal and conjugate heat transfer, and analytical and numerical methods for solving conjugate convention heat transfer problems. A final section surveys applications in the thermal treatment of materials, technological processes, and operating manufacturing equipment.

Illustrates Calculations Using Machine and Technological Processes
The conjugate heat transfer (CHT) problem addresses the thermal interaction between a body and fluid flowing over or through it. This is an essential consideration in nature and different areas of engineering, including mechanics, aerospace, nuclear engineering, biology, and meteorology. Advanced conjugate modeling of the heat transfer process is now used extensively in a wide range of applications.
Conjugate Problems in Convective Heat Transfer addresses the latest theory, methods, and applications associated with both analytical and numerical methods of solution CHT problems and their exact and approximate solutions. It demonstrates how the true value of a CHT solution is derived by applying these solutions to contemporary engineering design analysis. Assembling cutting-edge information on modern modeling from more than 200 publications, this book presents more than 100 example applications in thermal treatment materials, machinery operation, and technological processes. Creating a practical review of current CHT development, the author includes methods associated with estimating heat transfer, particularly that from arbitrary non-isothermal surfaces in both laminar and turbulent flows.
Harnesses the Modeling Power of CHT
Unique in its consistent compilation and application of current knowledge, this book presents advanced CHT analysis as a powerful tool for modeling various device operations and technological processes, from relatively simple procedures to complex multistage, nonlinear processes.
