Book Description

From the Back Cover The careful ordering of topics in each chapter leads readers gradually from introductory concepts to advanced material, eliminating roadblocks to developing solid engineering problem-solving skills. Mathematical concepts are reviewed on as needed basis refreshing memories, and the computational software integrated with the book allows them to obtain reliable numerical results. The integrated coverage of design principles and the wide variety of exercises based on current heat and mass transfer technologies encourage the reader to think like an engineer. FEATURES NEW ? Includes 300 new exercises. Material carefully arranged in each chapter so that the simplest concepts are presented first, progressing to more complex material. Essential details of classical mathematics are presented as needed, to refresh and reinforce math skills. Current material on refrigerants is included? exercises and property tables have been updated with R-22 and R-134a. Design principles are fully integrated?including thermalhydraulic design of exchangers and the economic considerations. These real-world applications better prepare readers to solve the problems they will face in their careers. Includes thermal hydraulic design of exchanges. Focus on economic consideration of design. Free software enables users to perform parametric calculations with links, when appropriate, directly from property data in the appendices. Available at Over 1,000 exercises - including over 300 new exercises are in this edition. Reinforcing exercises are designed to help students understand fundamental concepts. Applied exercises encourage users to use heat transfer concepts in real world situations. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Read more
