About the book
Dr. S. V. Kota Reddy, Academic President, Manipal ★★★★★
This book is very good for all UG, PG and Ph. D. students. The solutions for the various problems are excellent. The mathcad software is used very efficiently and intelligently for solving the problems. .
This book contains solutions to problems in the area of Heat Transfer, as per the syllabus of B.E. and M.Tech. courses in Visweswaraya Technological University, Karnataka (and other Universities as well).
Problems are solved using four popular software, viz. “Mathcad”, “Engineering Equation Solver (EES)” , “Finite Element Heat Transfer (FEHT)” and MS EXCEL-2007. Comments are included generously in the codes so that the logic behind the solution is clear. An introductory chapter gives a brief overview of the softwares used.
Use of computer software helps in solving the problems fast and accurately. More importantly, parameter analysis (what – if analysis) and graphical visualization is done to make an in – depth analysis of the problem. Once a particular type of problem is solved, solving similar problems later becomes extremely easy. In addition, one can plot the data, curve fit, write functions for various properties or calculations and re-use them. These possibilities create interest, curiosity and wonder in the minds of students and enthuse them to know more and work more.

Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Karnataka Regional Engineering College, Surathkal, Karnataka, India, in the year 1965. He obtained M.Sc (cryogenis) from University of Southampton, U.K. and Ph.D.(cryogenics) from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India.
He is a Fellow of Institution of Engineers (India), Life Member, Indian Society for Technical Education, and a Foundation Fellow of Indian Cryogenics Council.
He has worked in India and abroad on large projects in the areas involving heat transfer, fluid flow, vacuum system design, cryogenic engineering, cryo-pumping etc.
He worked as Head of Cryogenics Dept. in Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Bombay and Centre for Advanced Technology (CAT), Indore, from 1966 to 1992.
He worked as Guest Collaborator with Superconducting Super Collider Laboratory of Universities Research Association, in Dallas, USA from 1990 to 1993.
He also worked at the Institute of Cryogenics, Southampton, U.K. as a Visiting Research Fellow from 1993 to 1994.
He was Head of the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, Fr. Conceicao Rodrigues Institute of Technology, Vashi, Navi Mumbai, India for eight years.
He also worked as Head of Dept. of Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering, and then as Principal, Vivekananda College of Engineering and Technology, Puttur (D.K.), India.
Presently, he is Professor and coordinator of Post-graduate program in the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering in St. Joseph Engineering College, Vamanjoor, Mangalore, India.
A book entitled “Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer” authored by him and published by M/s Pearson Education, India (2006) has been adopted as a Text book for third year engineering students by the Visweswaraya Technological University (V.T.U.), Belgaum, India.
He has also written and published three booklets entitled as follows:
