This Second Edition for the standard graduate level course in conduction heat transfer has been updated and oriented more to engineering applications partnered with real-world examples. New features include: numerous grid generation--for finding solutions by the finite element method--and recently developed inverse heat conduction. Every chapter and reference has been updated and new exercise problems replace the old.
