Product Description

From the Back Cover

The new standard for mastering heat transfer

Respected for its readability, comprehensiveness, and relevance, Incropera and DeWitt’s text is the recognized standard for learning heat transfer. This text combines detailed coverage with the resources students need to meet their objectives. Its rigorous and systematic problem-solving methodology is filled with examples and problems that reveal the richness and beauty of the discipline.

This new 5th Edition introduces new coauthors Ted Bergman and Adrienne Lavine, who bring their record of success in teaching heat transfer and active involvement with research in the field to the text.

  New Features

  • Expanded coverage of areas of recent interest in heat transfer, including fuel cells and alternative energy devices, electronics cooling, micro-scale heat transfer, and biological as well as bioheat transfer. New homework problems are included for each area.
  • New material on two-phase heat transfer and enhanced internal forced convection.
  • Introduction to the concepts of nano-scale transport and unified treatment of transient conduction.
  • New, revised, and updated problems and examples.

 Model, solve, and explore heat transfer problems

Interactive Heat Transfer and Finite Element Heat Transfer software with User’s Guide CD and print booklet, ISBN: 0-471-76115-X

Completely updated with a modern graphical user interface and better graphing tools, Interactive Heat Transfer (IHT) software will help you learn how to build thermal models, solve specific conditions, and explore the effects of multiple parameter variations. IHT is now capable of solving 300+ equations. The Finite Element Heat Transfer software enhances capabilities for treating steady-state and transient one- and two-dimensional conduction problems.

About the Author

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, but missing solutions to problems Feb. 23 2000
Format:Hardcover
This book paints a good picture of concepts. The formulas are explained adequately and are followed by examples most of the time.
My only dislike of the book is the examples that are shown are very elementary and don't offer a lot of help on solving new problems. Another thing that the book needs is answers to the problems, because if you are working the problems and arrive at an answer, you don't know if you are correct.

4.0 out of 5 stars Descriptive April 9 2001
Format:Hardcover
As far as textbooks go, I thought this was an excellent one. The text itself is useful, the example problems are relevant to the problems related to each chapter, and the theory is clearly mapped out.
Our class used this text to supplement another, though I thought the course could have stoof alone on the Incropera and Dewitt text. An excellent introduction to the topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars heat exchangers July 24 2005
Format:Hardcover
heat transfer, exchange of energy in the form of heat between bodies or parts of the same body at different temperature. heat is transferred by convection, radiation, or conduction. although these three processes can occur simultaneously, it is not unusual for one mechanism to overshadow the other two. for example, heat is transferred predominantly by conduction through the brick wall of a house, a pan of water on a stove is largely heated by convection and eart receives heat from the sun almost wholly by radiation.
heat exchangers are devices that provide the flowage thermal energy between two or more fluids at different temperature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book April 16 2005
By P. Kuss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I don't usually write reviews of books that I have purchased but I felt that I had to for this one. Does a great job in explaining the concepts and doesn't leave you lost as it moves through the chapters. It is written clearly and very easy to follow. The answers(not the worked out solutions) are avaliable on the company's website. (....)

2.0 out of 5 stars From an engineering student Sept. 22 2010
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I liked this book going through it the first time, and I assume that the information in it is fairly standard for heat transfer courses, but I found severe drawbacks while using it a second time. The way the information is presented is too theoretical to use as a reference text. It is difficult to find equations since they are strewn throughout the text in a matter-of-fact way. The Index is very bare considering it is almost a 900 page text. Overall it is not very useful since it is difficult to open it up and check something quick that you may have forgotten about after a few years.

took a course in heat transfer based on this text book.
easy to follow chapters, clear examples.
formulas are batched each subject and are highlighted for easy to find.
a lot of questions for exercise but need solutions book for answers...
