: Introduce the principles of heat transfer using the classic that sets the standard of coverage and organization for all other heat transfer texts. Following the recommendations of the ASME Committee on Heat Transfer Education, Kreith/Manglik's PRINCIPLES OF HEAT TRANSFER, 8E provides a comprehensive engineering approach that is ideal for your upper-level, one-semester course in heat transfer. This relevant book recognizes that in today's world, computational analysis is more important than mathematical solutions to heat transfer problems. However, the authors also acknowledge that the analytic approach is effective for instruction. This approach prepares students with a clear understanding of the physics involved while also providing the tools for analyzing more complex problems. The book emphasizes applications to current engineering challenges in renewable energy, bioengineering, microelectronics, materials processing, and space exploration.
