Frank Kreith and Mark Bohn's PRINCIPLES OF HEAT TRANSFER is known and respected as a classic in the field! The sixth edition has new homework problems, and the authors have added new Mathcad problems that show readers how to use computational software to solve heat transfer problems. This new edition features its own web site that features real heat transfer problems from the industry, as well as actual case studies.
A text for a one-semester course in heat transfer at the junior or senior level. Coverage encompasses heat conduction, numerical analysis, natural convection, forced convection, heat exchangers, heat transfer by radiation, and heat transfer with phase change. Includes chapter problems and appendices of reference tables. This sixth edition of a text considered a classic in the field introduces material on practical engineering problem solving and utilization of computers for numerical analysis, with new, open-ended, ongoing problems that illustrate practical applications of heat transfer, and Mathcad examples and exercises. Kreith is professor emeritus at the University of Colorado-Boulder. Bohn is vice president of engineering in a private-sector company. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
