This is Vol. 5 of the book “Software Solutions to Problems on Heat Transfer”.

Present Volume deals with the important subject of RADIATION HEAT TRANSFER.

In this book, many Functions are written on View Factors for various geometries, Radiation exchange in 2_zone and 3-zone enclosures, Radiation shields etc. in Mathcad, EES and EXCEL-VBA. These Functions enable us to perform the complicated calculations very easily.

In this Volume, presented in two parts, problems are solved on following topics:

• View factors & Radiation energy exchange between black bodies
• Electrical network method & Radiation energy exchange in 2-zone and 3-zone enclosures
• Here also, problems are solved using the popular software, viz. “Mathcad”, “Engineering Equation Solver (EES)”, and MS EXCEL spreadsheet. Comments are included generously in the codes so that the logic behind the solutions is clear.

2. View factors (or, Shape factor, configuration factor) and Radiation energy exchange between Black bodies
Es un magnifico libro de ayuda, para personas que estudian procesos de transferencia de calor.
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.. I am using this book for my research work sponsored by ASHRAE.

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.
