Synopses & Reviews
Thoroughly up-to-date and packed with real world examples that apply concepts to engineering practice, HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER, 2e, presents the fundamental concepts of heat and mass transfer, demonstrating their complementary nature in engineering applications. Comprehensive, yet concise, the book provides a solid introduction to the scientific, mathematical, and empirical methods for treating heat and mass transfer phenomena, along with the tools needed to assess and solve a variety of contemporary engineering problems. Practical guidance throughout helps readers learn to anticipate the reasonable answers for a particular system or process and understand that there is often more than one way to solve a particular problem.
Review
Rolle revises his engineering textbook for a three-semesterupper-level engineering or engineering technology course, ideally mechanical engineering, but other disciplines as well. He presentsthe fundamental concepts and ideas of heat and mass transfer, and demonstrates how they can be used to design and analyze a variety ofpertinent and contemporary engineering problems. He also demonstrates experimental methods of measuring and monitoring variousparameters and behavior of engineering systems that involve heat and mass transfer.Annotation �2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
