The book provides an exhaustive coverage of two and three-dimensional heat conduction, forced and free convection, boiling heat transfer, computer methods in heat transfer, and heat exchangers. Heat Transfer is a comprehensive textbook aimed at undergraduate students of mechanical, chemical, metallurgical, and aerospace engineering. It will also serve as a useful text to postgraduate students specializing in thermal sciences, practising engineers, and researchers. The book provides an exhaustive coverage of two and three-dimensional heat conduction, forced and free convection, boiling heat transfer, computer methods in heat transfer, and heat exchangers. The main emphasis is on the understanding of fundamental concepts and their application to complex problems. Its treatment of topics such as solar radiation and greenhouse effect and the application of computational heat transfer to medical surgery make it contemporary as well as informative. Written in a lucid style, the book contains a large number of solved and unsolved problems to make for a student-friendly book. A large number of illustrations aid the explanations provided in the text. Key Features Emphasis on Fundamental concepts Suitable for not only UG but also PG students Detailed solution methodologies Easy-to-understand mathematics Large number of solved problems and figures Large number of exercise problems Answers to selected exercise problems of each chapter Detailed coverage of finite-difference methods in heat conduction along with thoroughly worked out example problems in Chapter 10 CD containing computer programmes for solution of some problems in Chapter 10 Presentation of an application of computational heat transfer in cryosurgery for treatment of cancerous tumours Exhaustive treatment of 2D, 3D heat conduction, forced and free convection, flow boiling, radiation and heat exchangers Inclusion of solar radiation and greenhouse effect Short biographies of famous heat transfer scientists About the Author P. S. Ghoshdastidar is currently Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. A Ph D from the University of South Carolina, he has around 20 years of teaching and reserach experience. He is the author of Computer Simulation of Flow and Heat Transfer and has published several research papers in national and international journals.
