This updated edition of a widely admired text provides a user-friendly introduction to the field that requires only routine
mathematics. The book starts with the elements of fluid mechanics and heat transfer, and covers a wide range of applications
from fibrous insulation and catalytic reactors to geological strata, nuclear waste disposal, geothermal reservoirs, and the
storage of heat-generating materials. As the standard reference in the field, this book will be essential to researchers and
practicing engineers, while remaining an accessible introduction for graduate students and others entering the field. The
new edition features 2700 new references covering a number of rapidly expanding fields, including the heat transfer properties
of nanofluids and applications involving local thermal non-equilibrium and microfluidic effects.
