This textbook is intended for courses in heat transfer for undergraduates, not only in chemical engineering and related disciplines of biochemical engineering and chemical technology, but also in mechanical engineering and production engineering. The author provides the reader with a very thorough account of the fundamental principles and their applications to engineering practice, including a survey of the recent developments in heat transfer equipment.The three basic modes of heat transfer - conduction, convection and radiation - have been comprehensively analyzed and elucidated by solving a wide range of practical and design-oriented problems. A whole chapter has been devoted to explain the concept of the heat transfer coefficient to give a feel of its importance in tackling problems of convective heat transfer. The use of the important heat transfer correlations has been illustrated with carefully selected examples.
Key Features:An overview of the construction, operation and selection of equipment for heating, cooling, and phase change (boiling, condensation and evaporation) has been provided together with some glimpses of the present trends and practice relating to heat transfer equipment in process industries. Illustrations and photographs of the state-of-the-art equipment have been given. Finally, theoretical analyses of unsteady state and multidimensional heat transfer as well as boundary layer heat transfer presented in the last two chapters will help students develop skills to analyze complex problems. A collection of short questions at the end of chapters allows students to measure their learning. The exercise problems relate to various industrial processes and have been carefully designed to offer challenge and stimulus to the students. Read less
