The de facto standard text for heat transfer — noted for its readability, comprehensiveness, and relevancy — has been revised to address new application areas of heat transfer while continuing to emphasize the fundamentals. The sixth edition, like previous editions, continues to support four student learning objectives:
- learn the meaning of the terminology and physical principles of heat transfer
- identify and describe appropriate transport phenomena for any process or system involving heat transfer
- use requisite inputs for computing heat transfer rates and/or material temperatures
- develop representative models of real processes and systems and draw conclusions concerning process/systems design or performance from the attendant analyses.
