Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Designed for undergraduate and graduate level engineering courses, this authoritative text helps students to significantly expand their knowledge of heat and mass transfer. At its heart is a belief in the need for each student to develop and evaluate mathematical models based on numerous examples of experimental data. In the process, the author provides valuable exposure to the broad spectrum of engineering applications. A confidence-building volume that both teaches and challenges students.

From the Back Cover

For a Full Course on Transport Phenomena A companion text entitled An Introduction to Fluid Dynamics, written by the same author, is also available. Together, these two texts represent complete, consistent coverage of transport phenomena. Both texts:
  • Focus on the development of a mathematical model as a central part of the analysis and design of an engineering system or process
  • Teach students how to develop accurate mathematical representations of physical phenomena
  • Present many examples of experimental data against which the model can be compared
  • Expose students to the wide range of technologies which they may encounter in the future
  • Provide a wealth of real world applications drawn from the author’s years of experience as a consultant

Format: Paperback
This book is by far the best INTRO text to transport phenomena from the perspective of a chemical engineer.
Of course, a student must be equipped with proper math background (such as BASIC differential equations, vectors, etc). Middleman presents the material by giving proper mathematical derivation and many realistic applications. This book should be easy to follow as opposed to BSL that requires higher level of math. Students that complain about the book should realize that they need to review simple calculus.

I am a Chemical Engineering senior at a major university. My professor forced middleman down our throats both for fluid dynamics and Mass and Heat transfer(double dose of Middleman..hehe..:).However he was a good teacher and pretty much derived everything .I got a B in the class and I am only an average math student. The book taught me alot and I am glad that I perservered ,particularly it made me appreciate diffQ's and how they are applied to design ,in Chem E. I have to admit this book is not meant for self study, you have to read it like 3 times to get it ,it's kind of a test of how bad you want to be a Chem E. Some parts are like advanced hieroglyphics. some of the end of chapter problems are insane(Middleman must have been tipsy:)). Despite everything I honestly feel it's a very good solid book well written for the most part and intended for a mature audience( like any serious ChemE's:). It is also meant to teach you how to think in terms of design and I am grateful for that. If you want to learn how to design air freshners:)and how to set expiration dates on bread and candy :) etc you have to suck it in and get through this book/Course. Maybe it wouldnt be so bad if students had access to answers to some of the end of chapter problems. I know it is engineering not physics but cut us some slack Middleman. Also if you really want to be a Chem E quit whinning and just struggle through the book nothing comes easy ,many have gone before you and survived. This book is not that bad. I recommend it to all who are not faint hearted.Read more ›

I agree with some of the other reviewers that there are notoriously few books on heat and mass transfer which are not heavy on mathematics -- which has to do with the subject! However, Middleman's book stands out in another respect: it tries to balance the motivation behind the maths with the mathematical derivations themselves and is therefore much more self-contained than many others. Personally, I found the use of non-SI units annoying, but that may not be a problem for US readers.

There's a tendency to skip over important details of derivation, but all in all this provides a strong foundation for the material.

Very good book. Some say the equations are incorrect. The equations are not. You must must must pay close attention to how they define the variables before they use them. If you go by the definitions in your head then the equations may seem incorrect. The author is exceedingly thorough but it is hard to tell when he is changing gears. This is why I give it 4 stars and not 5
