Product Description


"...a valuable text not only for senior and graduate students...but also for engineers working in these fields." (Zentralbaltt MATH, May 2005)

From the Back Cover

This book covers in one volume, both the theoretical development, as well as appropriate numerical solutions, for all aspects of transport phenomena. It contains a basic introduction to many aspects of fluid mechanics, heat transfer and mass transfer, and the conservation equations for mass, energy and momentum are discussed with reference to engineering applications. Heat transfer by conduction, radiation, natural and forced convection is studied, as well as mass transfer and incompressible fluid mechanics.

The second part of the book deals with numerical methods used to solve the problems encountered earlier. The basic concepts of finite difference and finite volume methods are presented. Other subjects usually covered in mathematical textbooks such as vector and tensor analysis. Laplace transforms and Runge–Kutta methods are discussed in the Appendices.

Providing a comprehensive overview of transport phenomena from the basic equations to the solution of difficult problems, this work is an invaluable text not only for senior and graduate students in mechanical, aeronautical and chemical engineering, but also for engineers practising in these fields
