Overview

Noted for its crystal clear presentation and easy-to-follow problem solving methodology, this bestselling book in the field provides a complete introduction to the physical origins of heat and mass transfer. Contains hundred of problems and examples dealing with real engineering processes and systems. New open-ended problems add to the increased emphasis on design. Plus, Incropera & DeWitts systematic approach to the first law develops readers confidence in using this essential tool for thermal analysis.

Booknews
A textbook for a first course in heat transfer. The fourth edition (third was 1990) includes additional open-ended, design-oriented problems; provides for an optional Windows-based software (Interactive Heat Transfer) integrated with the text; and adds new material on the first law, one-dimensional steady-state conduction with generation, extended surfaces, and semi-infinite media.

Meet the Author

Frank P. Incropera is currently Matthew H. McCloskey Dean of the College of Engineering at Univeristy of Notre Dame. Professor Incropera received his B.S.M.E. from M.I.T. and his M.S.M.E. and Ph.D. from Stanford University, all in mechanical engineering. In 1998, he became the Clifford and Evelyn Brosey Professor of Mechanical Engineering. Professor Incropera has received four major Purdue teaching awards and was the 1982 recipient of the ASEE Ralph Coats Roe Award for excellence in teaching. He was the 1983 recipient of the ASEE George Westinghouse Award for achievements in teaching and research. In 1984 he became a Fellow of the ASME, and in 1988 he received the ASME Heat Transfer Memorial Award for twenty years of research accomplishments in the fields of plasma heat transfer, radiative transfer in participating media, and double-diffusive and mixed convection. In 1988 he was also recipient of the Senior Scientists Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and recipient of the Melville Medal for the best original paper published by ASME. In 1995 he received the Worcester Reed Warner Medal of ASME for contributions to the fundamental literature of heat transfer and his textbooks on the subject.

    This book is useless

    I'm presently renting this book an thankful I didn't shell out $200 for it. The problems are confusing, the chapters are poorly written and at such a high level that one has to take an advanced graduate course in partial differential equations to even understand the basics it's trying to cover. The book doesn't contain odd numbered answers so there's no way of checking your work without the professor providing assistance and the example problems contain no explanation as to why they are worked the way they are. Bessel functions just appear from nowhere without any explanation of what they are or how to use them.

    Overall, I would advise against using this book unless you really enjoy beating your head against a wall.
