Known for its crystal clear presentation and it's often imitated problem solving methodology, this best-selling book provides a complete introduction to Heat Transfer. The systematic approach to the first law develops readers' confidence in using this essential tool for thermal analysis. All the problems and examples closely reflect the realities of engineering practice and emphasize the use of heat transfer system design.
A textbook for a first course in heat transfer. This revised edition (second was 1990) enhances coverage of existing material on thermal contact resistance, lumped capacitance analysis, finite-difference methods, and compact heat exchangers; adds new material on forced convection in submerged jets and free convection in open, parallel plate channels; and provides nearly 300 new problems. An alternative version of Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

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.
