Overview

Gives a foundation to the four principle facets of thermal design: heat transfer analysis, materials performance, heating and cooling technology, and instrumentation and control. The focus is on providing practical thermal design and development guidance across the spectrum of problem analysis, material applications, equipment specification, and sensor and control selection.

"...provides the tools to achieve the solutions to the problems in thermal design--from manufacturing equipment to energy systems and consumer products to scientific aparatus...written for the non-specialist."
