This book is designed as a textbook for mechanical engineering seniors or beginning graduate students. The book provides a reasonable theoretical basis for a subject that has traditionally had a very strong experimental base. The core of the book is devoted to boundary layer theory with special emphasis on the laminar and turbulent thermal boundary layer. Two chapters on heat exchanger theory are included since this subject is one of the principle application areas of convective heat transfer.

Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer Book Review:

This extensively revised 4th edition provides an up-to-date, comprehensive single source of information on the important subjects in engineering radiative heat transfer. It presents the subject in a progressive manner that is excellent for classroom use or self-study, and also provides an annotated reference to literature and research in the field. The foundations and methods for treating radiative heat transfer are developed in detail, and the methods are demonstrated and clarified by solving example problems. The examples are especially helpful for self-study. The treatment of spectral band properties of gases has been made current and the methods are described in detail and illustrated with examples. The combination of radiation with conduction and/or convection has been given more emphasis nad has been merged with results for radiation alone that serve as a limiting case; this increases practicality for energy transfer in translucent solids and fluids. A comprehensive catalog of configuration factors on the CD that is included with each book provides over 290 factors in algebraic or graphical form. Homework problems with answers are given in each chapter, and a detailed and carefully worked solution manual is available for instructors.

Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer, 5th Edition Book Review:

Providing a comprehensive overview of the radiative behavior and properties of materials, the fifth edition of this classic textbook describes the physics of radiative heat transfer, development of relevant analysis methods, and associated mathematical and numerical techniques. Retaining the salient features and fundamental coverage that have made it popular, Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer, Fifth Edition has been carefully streamlined to omit superfluous material, yet enhanced to update information with extensive references. Includes four new chapters on Inverse Methods, Electromagnetic Theory, Scattering and Absorption by Particles, and Near-Field Radiative Transfer Keeping pace with significant developments, this book begins by addressing the radiative properties of blackbody and opaque materials, and how they are predicted using electromagnetic theory and obtained through measurements. It discusses radiative exchange in enclosures without any radiating medium between the surfaces—and where heat conduction is included within the boundaries. The book also covers the radiative properties of gases and addresses energy exchange when gases and other materials interact with radiative energy, as occurs in furnaces. To make this challenging subject matter easily understandable for students, the authors have revised and reorganized this textbook to produce a streamlined, practical learning tool that: Applies the common nomenclature adopted by the major heat transfer journals Consolidates past material, reincorporating much of the previous text into appendices Provides an updated, expanded, and alphabetized collection of references, assembling them in one appendix Offers a helpful list of symbols With worked-out examples, chapter-end homework problems, and other useful learning features, such as concluding remarks and historical notes, this new edition continues its tradition of serving both as a comprehensive textbook for those studying and applying radiative transfer, and as a repository of vital literary references for the serious researcher.

Radiation Heat Transfer Book Review:

Thermal radiation plays a critical role in our everyday lives, from heating our homes and offices to controlling the temperature of the earth's atmosphere. Radiation Heat Transfer presents a comprehensive foundation in the basics of radiative heat transfer with focused coverage of practical applications. This versatile book is designed for a two-semester course, but can accommodate one-semester courses emphasizing either traditional methods of radiation heat transfer or a statistical formulation, specifically the Monte Carlo ray-trace (MCRT) method. Radiation Heat Transfer enables the uninitiated reader to formulate accurate models of advanced radiative systems without neglecting the complexity of the systems. The traditional methods covered here, including the net-exchange formulation, are mainstays in the industry. Also included is a step-by-step presentation of the more modern and technically accurate MCRT method, which has become increasingly relevant with today's availability of inexpensive computing power. As part of this book's comprehensive coverage of the MCRT formulation, it is packaged with a CD-ROM that includes: * The student version of FELIX--The essential program for this book, it computes the exchange coefficients needed to solve problems of radiative heat transfer analysis using both the traditional and statistical methods * A Mie scattering program--This program solves classic problems in radiative heat transfer by particles such as atmospheric aerosols An invaluable book for undergraduate and graduate students in courses on radiative heat transfer, as well as engineers and researchers in areas related to power generation, solar power, refrigeration, and cryogenics, including general mechanical, chemical, electronics, and materials engineering.
