Description
Content

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.
