This guide on the basics of heat transfer focuses on applications and problem-solving rather than theory and mathematics - demonstrating the critical connection between conceptual principles and their actual application in real-world thermal systems. Adopts a direct, "get to the bottom line" approach that avoids lengthy, complex mathematical excursions, and promotes understanding with topically-arranged applications problems and detailed examples at the end of each chapter to help users relate heat transfer theory to its practical, everyday usage. Presents numerous computer applications using spreadsheets and other software. An extensive appendix includes comprehensive databases of thermal properties and related data; facilitates computer solution of convection problems, and; provides polynomial curve fits for the main thermal properties of liquids and gases. For professionals in mechanical and industrial technology.
