This Second Edition for the standard graduate level course in conduction heat transfer has been updated and oriented more to engineering applications partnered with real-world examples. New features include: numerous grid generationfor finding solutions by the finite element methodand recently developed inverse heat conduction. Every chapter and reference has been updated and new exercise problems replace the old.
This new edition of a leading graduate-level textbook for engineering students and reference for practicing engineers, scientists, and researchers has been updated to include the important new developments that have occurred in the field during the 12 years since publication of the first edition. It has also been expanded to include more practical applications and real-world examples; new chapters on the theory and application of inverse heat conduction problems and on the formulation and solution of moving heat source problems; and a large number of worked-out examples in each chapter.
