  • Adopts a direct, get to the bottom line approach to heat transfer without lengthy, complex mathematical excursions in which students often get bored or lost.
  • Enforces retention with topically-arranged applications problems and detailed examples at the end of each chapter that help students relate heat transfer theory to its practical, everyday usage, helps students appreciate the importance of heat transfer in their daily lives and in modern technology.
  • Presents numerous computer applications using spreadsheets or other software, devotes considerable attention to the solution of steady and unsteady two-dimensional conduction problems using the finite difference method on spreadsheets.
  • Includes a thorough and informative appendix that: Offers one of the most extensi
