Heat and mass transfer: a practical approach
With complete coverage of the basic principles of heat transfer and a broad range of applications in a flexible format, "Heat and Mass Transfer: A Practical Approach" provides the perfect blend of fundamentals and applications. The text provides a highly intuitive and practical understanding of the material by emphasizing the physics and the underlying physical phenomena involved. Key: Text covers the standard topics of heat transfer with an emphasis on physics and real-world every day applications, while de-emphasizing the intimidating heavy mathematical aspects. This approach is designed to take advantage of students' intuition, making the learning process easier and more engaging. Key: The new edition will add helpful web-links for students. Key: 50% of the Homework Problems including design, computer, essay, lab-type, and FE problems are new or revised to this edition. Using a reader-friendly approach and a conversational writing style, the book is self-instructive and entertains while it teaches. It shows that highly technical matter can be communicated effectively in a simple yet precise language.
