Beskrivelse
Indhold

This book contains many Functions written in Mathcad for the following topics: Radiation Laws, View Factors for various geometries, Radiation heat exchange in 2-zone and 3-zone enclosures, Radiation shields, radiation error in temp measurement etc. These Functions enable us to make the complicated calculations very easily.

Use of these Functions is demonstrated by working out a few typical problems. Emphasis is given not only to solving a given problem but also to parametric analysis and graphical representation of results.

It is hoped that this book will be useful to teachers, students, researchers and professionals working in this field.

About the Author

Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar

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, 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.

He was 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 authored a free e-book entitled “Software Solutions to Problems on Heat Transfer” wherein problems are solved using 4 software viz. Mathcad, EES, FEHT and EXCEL. This book, containing about 2750 pages, is presented in 9 parts and all the 9 parts can be downloaded for free from www.bookboon.com.

He has also authored free e-books on Thermodynamics entitled “Basic Thermodynamics: Software Solutions” and “Applied Thermodynamics: Software Solutions” wherein problems are solved using 3 software viz. Mathcad, EES, and TEST. Each of these titles is presented in 5 parts and all the books can be downloaded for free from www.bookboon.com.

He has also written and published three booklets entitled as follows:

1. Towards Excellence…How to Study (A Guide book to Students)
2. Towards Excellence…How to teach (A guide book to Teachers)
3. Towards Excellence…Seminars, GD’s and Personal Interviews (A guide book to Professional and Management students)

Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar has attended several National and International conferences and has more than 50 publications to his credit.
