Presents introductory material appropriate for a first course in heat transfer. This edition features design-oriented problems and a greater emphasis on the computer, with more material on how to establish computational algorithms. The IBM diskette accompanying the book can be used to help resolve the design-oriented problems.

Many of the 1,100 problems are new, including 100 design-oriented problems which require judgment decisions.
Labeled examples and a new listing of worked examples are located at the end of each chapter to help students correlate the examples with the problems and theory.
A computer emphasis with extensive coverage of how to establish computational algorithms is found in chapters 3, 4, and 8.
Chapter 11 is devoted solely to mass transfer.
The reorganization of content reflects a more modern approach. Outdated techniques in the numerical methods section (chapter 3), along with the special topics chapter have been eliminated, while heat pipes and low density heat transfer have been moved to chapters 9 and 7, respectively.
Free! DOS-based software with built-in convection and heat radiation function and properties of water and air for convection calculation helps in computing heat transfer phenomena, as well as other problems in the book.
