A core task of engineers is to analyse energy related problems. The analytical treatment is usually based on principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer, but is increasingly being handled computationally. This unique resource presents a practical textbook, written for both undergraduates and professionals, with a series of over 60 computer workbooks on an accompanying CD. The book emphasizes how complex problems can be deconstructed into a series of simple steps. All thermophysical property computations are illustrated using diagrams within text and on the companion CD.

This innovative text emphasizes a "less-is-more" approach to modeling complicated systems such as heat transfer by treating them first as "1-node lumped models" that yield simple closed-form solutions. The author develops numerical techniques for students to obtain more detail, but also trains them to use the techniques only when simpler approaches fail. Covering all essential methods offered in traditional texts, but with a different order, Professor Sidebotham stresses inductive thinking and problem solving as well as a constructive understanding of modern, computer-based practice. Readers learn to develop their own code in the context of the material, rather than just how to use packaged software, offering a deeper, intrinsic grasp behind models of heat transfer. Developed from over twenty-five years of lecture notes to teach students of mechanical and chemical engineering at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, the book is ideal for students and practitioners across engineering disciplines seeking a solid understanding of heat transfer. This book also: · Adopts a novel inductive pedagogy where commonly understood examples are introduced early and theory is developed to explain and predict readily recognized phenomena · Introduces new techniques as needed to address specific problems, in contrast to traditional texts’ use of a deductive approach, where abstract general principles lead to specific examples · Elucidates readers’ understanding of the "heat transfer takes time" idea—transient analysis applications are introduced first and steady-state methods are shown to be a limiting case of those applications · Focuses on basic numerical methods rather than analytical methods of solving partial differential equations, largely obsolete in light of modern computer power · Maximizes readers’ insights to heat transfer modeling by framing theory as an engineering design tool, not as a pure science, as has been done in traditional textbooks · Integrates practical use of spreadsheets for calculations and provides many tips for their use throughout the text examples

Characterizing Expert and Novice Differences in Problem Solving in Heat Transfer

This research investigates adaptive expertise through the analysis of written open-ended questions. The open-ended questions were given to experts (advanced graduate students) and to novices (undergraduates taking an introductory heat transfer course). Analysis of the experts' responses to these questions indicated that experts make qualifying statements in their responses, a newly identified characteristic of expertise. Analysis of the novices' responses indicates areas for future work in research and teaching. Additionally, the wording of the open-ended questions appears to be important: the responses to questions that asked participants to choose an outcome showed greater differences between the expert and novice participants than questions that asked participants to explain how or why something happens.

This book introduces the fundamental concepts of inverse heat transfer problems. It presents in detail the basic steps of four techniques of inverse heat transfer protocol, as a parameter estimation approach and as a function estimation approach. These techniques are then applied to the solution of the problems of practical engineering interest involving conduction, convection, and radiation. The text also introduces a formulation based on generalized coordinates for the solution of inverse heat conduction problems in two-dimensional regions.

This substantially revised text represents a broader based biological engineering title. It includes medicine and other applications that are desired in curricula supported by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, as well as many bioengineering departments in both U.S. and worldwide departments. This new edition will focus on a significant number of biological applications, problem-solving techniques, and solved examples. Specifically there will be 160+ interesting application problems over an entended biological base (biomedical, bioenvironmental, etc.) that were originally developed by the author throughout his 13 years of teaching this course at Cornell.

This book presents a comprehensive treatment of the essential fundamentals of the topics that should be taught as the first-level course in Heat Transfer to the students of engineering disciplines. The book is designed to stimulate student learning through clear, concise language. The theoretical content is well balanced with the problem-solving methodology necessary for developing an orderly approach to solving a variety of engineering problems. The book provides adequate mathematical rigour to help students achieve a sound understanding of the physical processes involved. Key Features : A well-balanced coverage between analytical treatments, physical concepts and practical demonstrations. Analytical descriptions of theories pertaining to different modes of heat transfer by the application of conservation equations to control volume and also by the application of conservation equations in differential form like continuity equation, Navier–Stokes equations and energy equation. A short description of convective heat transfer based on physical understanding and practical applications without going into mathematical analyses (Chapter 5). A comprehensive description of the principles of convective heat transfer based on mathematical foundation of fluid mechanics with generalized analytical treatments (Chapters 6, 7 and 8). A separate chapter describing the basic mechanisms and principles of mass transfer showing the development of mathematical formulations and finding the solution of simple mass transfer problems. A summary at the end of each chapter to highlight key terminologies and concepts and important formulae developed in that chapter. A number of worked-out examples throughout the text, review questions, and exercise problems (with answers) at the end of each chapter. This book is appropriate for a one-semester course in Heat Transfer for undergraduate engineering students pursuing careers in mechanical, metallurgical, aerospace and chemical disciplines.

Principles of Heat Transfer in Porous Media

Although the empirical treatment of fluid flow and heat transfer in porous media is over a century old, only in the last three decades has the transport in these heterogeneous systems been addressed in detail. So far, single-phase flows in porous media have been treated or at least formulated satisfactorily, while the subject of two-phase flow and the related heat-transfer in porous media is still in its infancy. This book identifies the principles of transport in porous media and compares the avalaible predictions based on theoretical treatments of various transport mechanisms with the existing experimental results. The theoretical treatment is based on the volume-averaging of the momentum and energy equations with the closure conditions necessary for obtaining solutions. While emphasizing a basic understanding of heat transfer in porous media, this book does not ignore the need for predictive tools; whenever a rigorous theoretical treatment of a phenomena is not avaliable, semi-empirical and empirical treatments are given.
