Overview

This invaluable text, provides a much-needed overview of both the theoretical development, as well as appropriate numerical solutions, for all aspects of transport phenomena. It contains a basic introduction to many aspects of fluid mechanics, heat transfer and mass transfer, and the conservation equations for mass, energy and momentum are discussed with reference to engineering applications. Heat transfer by conduction, radiation, natural and forced convection is studied, as well as mass transfer and incompressible fluid mechanics.

The second part of the book deals with numerical methods used to solve the problems encountered earlier. The basic concepts of finite difference and finite volume methods are presented. Other subjects usually covered in mathematical textbooks such as vector and tensor analysis, Laplace transforms, and Runge-Kutta methods are discussed in the Appendices.
* Offers comprehensive coverage of both transport phenomena and numerical and analytical solutions to the problems.
* Includes comprehensive coverage of numerical techniques.
* Provides real-life problems and solutions, which are vital to the understanding and implementation of applications.
This work will be welcomed not only by senior and graduate students in mechanical, aeronautical and chemical engineering, but also for engineers practising in these fields.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a valuable text not only for senior and graduate students...but also for engineers working in these fields." (Zentralbaltt MATH, May 2005)
Booknews
This textbook for senior and graduate students in mechanical, aeronautical and chemical engineering covers both the theoretical development and appropriate numerical solutions for all aspects of transport phenomena. The author first explains incompressible fluid mechanics, mass transfer, and heat transfer by conduction, radiation, natural and forced convection, then introduces the numerical methods used to solve these problems, including finite difference and finite volume methods.
