Heat transfer is crucial to virtually every industrial and environmental process as well as to energy production and conversion. Written by leading heat transfer experts, the heavily revised edition-now in one comprehensive volume-of this classic guide offers engineers details on all advances in heat transfer technology, providing the information needed to solve a wide range of practical heat transfer problems. A vast revision of the two-volume second edition, it eliminates theory and instead emphasizes practical applications by presenting new findings on conduction, convection, radiation, and multi-phase heat transfer, plus new chapters on microscale heat transfer in porous media, and heat transfer in natural processing.
