Heat Transfer: Principles and Applications, written by Binoy K. Dutta, is an academic textbook written primarily for undergraduate courses in related disciplines such as Chemical Engineering, Biochemical Engineering, and Chemical Technology, Production Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
Summary Of The Book
An exhaustive and comprehensive textbook intended for Heat Transfer courses being taught at the undergraduate level, Heat Transfer: Principles and Applications is very thorough in its approach to the subject. It lays out a strong fundamental framework of the basic principles, following it up with the application of those principles to practical engineering and is inclusive of the changes and developments in heat transfer equipment that have taken place in the last few years.
A comprehensive theoretical analysis of the basic modes of heat transfer, namely, convection, conduction, and radiation, have been highlighted and well supported through a vast array of design-oriented and practical problems with their given solutions. Considering the significance of the heat transfer coefficient in handling convective heat transfer related issues, one entire chapter of the book is dedicated to providing a well-illustrated explanation of this concept. In addition, apt and carefully chosen examples have been used to shed light on heat transfer correlations and their use. The contents of Heat Transfer: Principles and Applications include topics such as Forced Convection, Heat Exchangers, Evaporation and Evaporators, Boundary Layer Heat Transfer, Steady State Conduction in One Dimension, Radiation Heat Transfer, Heat Transfer Coefficient, Unsteady State and Multidimensional Heat Conduction, Boiling and Condensation, and finally, Answers to Selected Problems.
