About the Authors
  • This new text integrates fundamental theory with modern computational tools such as EES, MATLAB®, and FEHT to equip students with the essential tools for designing and optimizing real-world systems and the skills needed to become effective practicing engineers. Real engineering problems are illustrated and solved in a clear step-by-step manner. Starting from first principles, derivations are tailored to be accessible to undergraduates by separating the formulation and analysis from the solution and exploration steps to encourage a deep and practical understanding. Numerous exercises are provided for homework and self-study and include standard hand calculations as well as more advanced project-focused problems for the practice and application of computational tools. Appendices include reference tables for thermophysical properties and answers to selected homework problems from the book. Complete with an online package of guidance documents on EES, MATLAB®, and FEHT software, sample code, lecture slides, video tutorials, and a test bank and full solutions manual for instructors, this is an ideal text for undergraduate heat transfer courses and a useful guide for practicing engineers.

    • Introduces fundamental concepts and links them directly with computational tools that are essential for the design and optimization of real-world systems
    • EES, MATLAB® and FEHT packages are integrated throughout the book and are accompanied by online guidance documents on how to use the software
    • Numerous homework problems are provided in each chapter, and include standard hand calculations as well as advanced project-focused problems requiring use of computational tools
    • Includes extensive examples of real engineering problems and takes a clear step-by-step approach to ensure students gain a thorough understanding of every derivation

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This excellent text on heat transfer continues the tradition of the strong analytical treatment of conduction and convection heat transfer, buttressed by strong EES, FEHT, and MATLAB examples … The emphasis on examples is substantial, and the use of the software is tastefully introduced in ways that emphasize the solution instead of the software … This edition is well organized, succinctly written, and well supported by software aids. The book is also a valuable reference for those in a wide variety of disciplines desiring to self-learn heat transfer. All the essential elements of a heat transfer course are well represented in this volume.' Ernest W. Tollner, University of Georgia

    'No other text spells out real-world problems with computer-based solutions as clearly as this one. This text will allow readers to translate quickly heat transfer lessons learned into interesting applied solutions.' Thomas Merrill, Rowan University, New Jersey

    'I've practiced heat transfer for 30 years as an engineer in industry, a scientist at a national lab, and an academic. Midway through my career, I studied Nellis and Klein's pedagogically pioneering text. It was only then that I obtained a firm grasp of the subject matter. Feedback from students in my classes on their book has been remarkably terrific.' Marc Hodes, Tufts University, Massachusetts
