Description

This book explains the basic modes of heat transfer namely conduction, convection and radiation. Fundamental mathematical models representing the heat transfer modes are introduced and application engineering problems are discussed. The principles of heat exchangers operation are covered as well.

Preface

Energy is defined as the capacity of a substance to do work. It is a property of the substance and it can be transferred by interaction of a system and its surroundings. The student would have encountered these interactions during the study of Thermodynamics. However, Thermodynamics deals with the end states of the processes and provides no information on the physical mechanisms that caused the process to take place. Heat Transfer is an example of such a process. A convenient definition of heat transfer is energy in transition due to temperature differences. Heat transfer extends the Thermodynamic analysis by studying the fundamental processes and modes of heat transfer through the development of relations used to calculate its rate.

The aim of this chapter is to console existing understanding and to familiarise the student with the standard of notation and terminology used in this book. It will also introduce the necessary units.
