### Heat Transfer: A Practical Approach, By "Yunus A. Çengel"

File Size: 11.80 mb

Description
Heat transfer is a basic science that deals with the rate of transfer of thermal energy. This introductory text is intended for use in a first course in heat transfer for undergraduate engineering students, and as a reference book for practicing engineers. The objectives of this text are
•  To cover the basic principles of heat transfer.
• To present a wealth of real-world engineering applications to give students a feel for engineering practice.
• To develop an intuitive understanding of the subject matter by emphasizing the physics and physical arguments.
Students are assumed to have completed their basic physics and calculus sequence. The completion of first courses in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and differential equations prior to taking heat transfer is desirable. The relevant concepts from these topics are introduced and reviewed as needed. In engineering practice, an understanding of the mechanisms of heat transfer is becoming increasingly important since heat transfer plays a crucial role in the design of vehicles, power plants, refrigerators, electronic devices, buildings, and bridges, among other things. Even a chef needs to have an intuitive understanding of the heat transfer mechanism in order to cook the food “right” by adjusting the rate of heat transfer. We may not be aware of it, but we already use the principles of heat transfer when seeking thermal comfort. We insulate our bodies by putting on heavy coats in winter, and we minimize heat gain by radiation by staying in shady places in summer. We speed up the cooling of hot food by blowing on it and keep warm in cold weather by cuddling up and thus minimizing the exposed surface area. That is, we already use heat transfer whether we realize it or not.
