Massoud Kaviany, "Essentials of Heat Transfer: Principles, Materials, and Applications"
2011 | ISBN: 1107012406 | 752 pages | PDF | 17 MB
This textbook teaches students the principles, materials, and applications they need to understand and analyze heat transfer problems they will encounter in practice. The emphasis on modern practical problems (including thermoelectric cooling), in the numerous examples, sets this work apart from other available works. The approach is to discuss heat transfer problems (in search of innovative and optimal solutions) and the engineering analysis, to motivate fundamental principles and analytical problem solving methods. By introducing heat flux tracking, the students develop intuition about the central role of heat transfer in engineered systems.
