An integrated approach illustrated by real-world examples Principles of Heat Transfer provides readers with the knowledge, intuition, and tools needed for finding innovative and optimal solutions to the heat transfer problems encountered in practice. This innovative volume takes a holistic approach that encompasses and integrates the principles of thermal energy conversion (bond, electromagnetic, and mechanical energy), thermal energy storage, and thermal energy transport (conduction, radiation, and convection), and then uses them in thermal engineering analysis (thermal circuit modeling and its solutions) in many practical examples. Important new material includes: * Heat flux vector tracking that directly leads into the construction of thermal circuit models, and is based on the natural and intuitive drawing of the heat flow paths in practical, complex systems * Engineering of hot and cold sources, such as combustion, thermal plasma, and thermoelectric cooling * Microscale heat carriers (conduction, radiation, and convection) and their roles in the design of innovative systems and processes * An emphasis on both analytical and numerical solutions, with software (SOPHT) that contains the closed-form solutions and models, as well as an easy-to-use numerical solver capable of solving more complex, practical problems * A final chapter that addresses thermal engineering design and modeling and covers solved, complete examples on cutting-edge practical applications, such as micro-electro-mechanical systems, actuators, and innovations in energy conversion systems On the CD-ROM: SOPHT (SOlver for Principles of Heat Transfer) The enclosed CD-ROM contains all the needed equations and relations (models) for thermal circuit modeling. These include the energy equations, the energy conversion models, and the heat transfer resistances. The models are easily copied into the worksheet for easy solution. This allows for a very intuitive and quick use of the book materials for solving new problems. The solver is capable of solving coupled, ordinary differential equations (for multi-node, transient problems) as well as simultaneous algebraic equations. It also allows for parametric studies (parameter sweep), as well as easy graphical presentation of the solutions. Many solved examples are included (one models the IC engine).
WHAT'S BONUS TIME?
Normally, new semester rental orders are exactly 125 days.
With “Bonus Time” you can order early and get a FREE extension until 12/19*.
It’s our little way of rewarding you early renters for planning ahead.
But do hurry. The “Bonus Time” offer runs out on 8/8 (11PM PST).
* It can take up to 24 hours for the extension to appear in your account after you receive your textbooks.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
