Book Description

April 12, 2011 0470501979 978-0470501979 7
Completely updated, the seventh edition provides engineers with an in-depth look at the key concepts in the field. It incorporates new discussions on emerging areas of heat transfer, discussing technologies that are related to nanotechnology, biomedical engineering and alternative energy. The example problems are also updated to better show how to apply the material. And as engineers follow the rigorous and systematic problem-solving methodology, they’ll gain an appreciation for the richness and beauty of the discipline.

Also a mechanical engineering major. I really like how the book explains the theory behind heat transfer, it is very detailed and clear, shows derivations, and different cases. When it gets to convection it offers derivations of the navier-stokes equations online. However it has few examples and I found I had to keep going through the chapters to figure out the homework, which is fine but kind of annoying and time consuming. I understand that it is a complex topic, but they can at least offer a bit more examples so students can understand the homework, and maybe some answers, at least odd or even. (my whole class complained about the book to the professor, telling him it was impossible and that the heat transfer book by Cengel was better. I think this is a main reason the prof's pick it. Also no solution manual available to students.). When it comes to material this book has more compared to Cengel's, which is vague on theory. Overall any book by the Wiley publishing company will most likely have no answers or solutions manual. Just wanted to add that. If I ever become a professor I will never ever put that super strict style on my students. I believe it hurts learning. My rating. 3 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Heat Transfer Text April 18, 2012
The factors that influenced this review the most were the following: Explanation of concepts; link between concepts and examples; link between examples and assigned problems; and the provided tables, charts, etc.

The actual rating I gave this text is 4.5/5.0, but I couldn't give half of a star.

1. Explanation of concepts: (9/10)
The authors not only know what they are talking about in the text, they are able to bring it down to a college student's level. Because Heat Transfer is difficult to understand, the authors take a lot of time explaining the why as well as the what and how. Along with the material from my Heat Transfer course, the text was amazingly helpful for filling in gaps in understanding for practically every topic.

2. Link between concepts and examples: (9/10)
The examples provided were most of the time extremely useful for seeing the concepts in action with respect to the equations and correlations. Occasionally, however, the examples were used to reveal the nature of a specific phenomenon, not necessarily to help with problems. Overall, the examples were a great demonstration of the concepts.

3. Link between examples and assigned problems: (7/10)
The problems assigned were generally extremely difficult and some were not even possible to understand without the aid of the answers or the solutions from the instructor. When looking at the examples, it was frustrating seeing how the questions asked in the examples were not as challenging as the problems. In a sense, the book showed us how to walk and then expected us to run. If you have a solutions manual of some sort, then the problems will be much more useful to learn from.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good text, unfortunate choice of publisher. March 24, 2013
The text contains good information and many references, examples, and problems. However, the publisher, Wiley, never fails to disappoint. The "answers to selected exercises" typically found in an appendix, are only accessible by the companion website, which may as well mean they are nonexistent, given the number of students who use the companion website. Some equations have confusing formatting. The text is not error free, but with so much information, that is to be expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book April 27, 2013
By J.H.
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Used this book for a heat transfer course and a heat transfer lab class, so I've become pretty familiar with it. I think it's a great book. Heat transfer is a large and encompassing topic and I think this book does a great of presenting it in as straight forward and organized fashion as possible. Some of the equations can get pretty ridiculous but the book does a great job of telling you what each and every term means. I learned everything from conduction, convection, and radiation to heat exchager design with this book and I have no major complaints about it. I would definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book! June 20, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
So, I started reading this book on a Tuesday. I didn't finish it until a Saturday like 5 months later. The material is a bit dry but if you want to know the thermal conductivity or specific heat of a banana, maybe cake batter or chickens, this is the book for you. After reading this book you will know precisely how long to cook your banana split for, or maybe how long to freeze your chicken.

Definitely a life changing experience to read this book.

My book came from India, and it has a different front cover, but it is the same book (same problems) as the American version.

I really like it. I've had my eyes opened to the coolness that is heat and mass transfer, though it's a tough class. Great stuff though.
