Heat Transmission (Chemical Engineering Series)

£14.99

Product description

This book is designed to serve both as a text for students and as a reference for practising engineers. The problem of heat transmission is encountered in almost every industry, and because of the diversity in the fields of application there exist countless differences in detail. However, the principles underlying the problem are everywhere the same, and it is the purpose of this book to present fundamentals rather than to deal with the details of individual problems and special cases. This is done not merely because the discussion of individual cases would involve excessive space but because, in the first place, the solution of no individual problem can be adequate without a mastery of the principles underlying the whole field, and, in the second place, the solution of the specific problem becomes relatively easy once those fundamental principles are understood.
This book may be divided into three parts: conduction, radiation and convection.
