5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive May 24, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Used this as a supplementary text to try and bring in an alternative perspective to the material for my Thermals & Fluids class. I didn't actually use it during the time I was taking the class but after I skimmed through the text and it had more in the way of content then my actual textbook for the course had. I would recommend this to people who either want it to help them when learning the material or for professionals who just need a casual reference text for when they are working.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good supplement November 27, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One aspect of the book I found very useful is the compilation of empirical correlations for the Nusselt number, making this book an ideal **supplement** to a more theoretically oriented textbook. For upper level undergraduate and the first year graduate students in an engineering major, my recommendation in this regard would be "Fundamental Principles of Heat Transfer" by Stephen Whitaker.

This book does a good job of covering all of the relevant concepts of heat transfer. I would give this 4 or 5 star rating, however the author makes mistakes in solving his own practice problems, but whats worse is the author can not even use values from his own tables correctly (for example in problem 4.3 the author uses a cp=473, when clearly in the table it is stated as cp=0.473). Errors like this are unacceptable, especially when many problems reference other problem. I have tried to reach the publisher to help correct these errors, but they have yet to get back to me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay as a supplement May 9, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't buy this to learn Heat Transfer, its biggest asset is that is has some crystal clear definitions but the equation aren't detailed enough to gain a valuable understanding from and examples are somewhat easy and shallow. At least for my class.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reference for Professional Practice December 13, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This reference fully met my needs for heat-transfer examples. It supplements Chapman 1967 and Incropera & DeWitt 1990, which do not provide answers to their end-of-chapter exercises.

I particularly liked the more recent correlations for forced convection, and the examples for material with low Biot numbers..

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Practical June 22, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Schaum's Outline of Heat Transfer provides practical applications of heat transfer calculations, without delving into too many details of the theory. This is a useful tool for engineers who are interested in applications. Sufficient theory and equations are presented to understand the subject and be able to perform calculations for practical applications.
