About the book

Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer is an introductory text elaborating the interface between Heat Transfer and subjects like Thermodynamics or Fluid Mechanics presenting the scientific basis of the equations and their physical explanations in a lucid way. The basic theories such as the Boundary Layer Theory and theories related to bubble growth during phase change have been explained in detail. In two-phase heat transfer, the deviations from standard theories such as the Nusselt’s theory of condensation have been discussed. In the chapter on heat exchangers detailed classification, selection, analysis and design procedures have been enumerated while two chapters on numerical simulation have also been included.

Key Features

  • • Historical developments with contributions of noted scientists included in separate boxes with interesting facts from nature as well as applications of heat transfer. • Carefully chosen examples and exercises to give the students a feel for the subject.
