Fundamentals of Momentum, Heat, and Mass Transfer / Edition 4by James Welty, Charles E. Wicks, Robert E. Wilson, Gregory L. Rorrer
Pub. Date: 11/28/2000
Provides a unified treatment of momentum transfer (fluid mechanics), heat transfer and mass transfer. The treatment of the three areas of transport phenomena is done sequentially. The subjects of momentum, heat, and mass transfer are introduced, in that order, and appropriate analysis tools are developed. See more details below

I am chemical enginner who graduated ~ 10 years ago. I was refreshing my previously studied heat-mass and momemntum transfer subjects. I came across this book last year. I found it very well written book with good explainations/derivations of fundamental equations. (There were some typo errors which I would like to communicate with authors or publisher-However they are minor). I wish our school had this book during our undergraduate studies. Thank you. VN
