Description
The book is divided into four Parts: Introduction, Principles, Equipment Design Procedures and Applications, and ABETrelated Topics. The first Part provides a series of chapters concerned with introductory topics that are required when solving most engineering problems, including those in heat transfer. The second Part of the book is concerned with heat transfer principles. Topics that receive treatment include Steadystate Heat Conduction, Unsteadystate Heat Conduction, Forced Convection, Free Convection, Radiation, Boiling and Condensation, and Cryogenics. Part three (considered the heart of the book) addresses heat transfer equipment design procedures and applications. In addition to providing a detailed treatment of the various types of heat exchangers, this part also examines the impact of entropy calculations on exchanger design, and operation, maintenance and inspection (OM&I), plus refractory and insulation effects. The concluding Part of the text examines ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) related topics of concern, including economies and finance, numerical methods, openended problems, ethics, environmental management, and safety and accident management.

Reviews
“It provides an excellent indepth analysis of many exchanger designs, giving the reader an understanding of critical design parameters and many ruleofthumb recommendations.” (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, 1 May 2013)
"This is by far the best book in the Wiley "Practicing Engineer"
series. I loved the Thermo, Mass Thermo and Fluid Flow Books, but
this one is even better. A must read for those working in the
field."
—John D. McKenna, Principal, ETS Incorporated
