This new edition balances traditionally rival corners of convection teaching and research, such as forced and natural convection, laminar and turbulent flows, fluids and fluid-saturated porous media, as well as theory and empiricism. Yet the new edition also focuses on the growing concerns in energy and ecology, with an emphasis on man's enhanced role in living equitably with nature. The book's unique topical breadth and arrangement, the first in a text on heat convection, reflect today's environmental realities. The Second Edition also includes such important additions as convection with change of phase (condensation, boiling, and melting), cooling of electronic packages by forced and natural convection, lubrication by contact melting, and several examples of conjugate heat transfer. The new edition also includes an exposition of the latest analytical techniques and new heat transfer correlations; an expanded discussion of laminar and, especially, turbulent forced convection, as well as the latest applications of the buckling theory of turbulent flow. The Second Edition of Convection Heat Transfer is an essential reference for professionals and students interested in successfully meeting the newer challenges of the science today.

Editorial Reviews

This updated edition focuses on environmental concerns, and includes questions, design problems, and an introductory symbols list. It covers natural and forced convection, convection through porous media saturated with fluid, turbulent transport in free-stream flow, and the cooling of electronic packages by forced and natural convection. Discussion includes applications such as geophysical dynamics, construction, and geothermal and thermal insulation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

Meet the Author

ADRIAN BEJAN, PhD, is the J. A. Jones Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Duke University. An internationally recognized authority on heat transfer and thermodynamics, Bejan has pioneered the methods of entropy generation minimization, scale analysis, heatlines and masslines, intersection of asymptotes, dendritic architectures, and the constructal law of design in nature. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Max Jakob Memorial Award (ASME & AICHE), the Worcester Reed Warner Medal (ASME), and the Ralph Coats Roe Award (ASEE). He is the author of twenty-five books and 550 journal articles, and is listed among the 100 most-cited engineering researchers (all disciplines, all countries). He has been awarded sixteen honorary doctorates by universities in eleven foreign countries.
