Bejan (mechanical engineering, Duke U.) updates his material from the latest research and provides new examples and exercises in this third edition of his classic text. He examines the fundamental principles of convection heat transfer, laminar boundary layer and duct flow, and external and internal natural convection. He proceeds to turbulence, including transition to turbulence, turbulent boundary layer and duct flow, and free turbulent flows. In the final chapters he describes convection with change of phase, mass transfer, and convection in porous media. Appendices include constants and conversion factors, mathematical formulas, and properties of solids, liquids, and gases. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR


This updated edition focuses on environmental concerns, and includes questions, design problems, and an introductory symbols list. It covers natural and forced convection, convection through porous media saturated with fluid, turbulent transport in free-stream flow, and the cooling of electronic packages by forced and natural convection. Discussion includes applications such as geophysical dynamics, construction, and geothermal and thermal insulation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
