Even if shipping was absolutely on time, i give just 3 stars for the following reasons:
1) the bottom-right corner of the cover was folded
2) the author didn't treat the fouling phenomenon and i found that very strange
Anyway, this textbook is very clear and comprehensive. If you need something regarding heat transfer, you should buy this book.

Format: Hardcover
At university this was held up as one of the best standard texts for understanding heat transfer. In industry this is the textbook used to design heat exchangers and the work copy is well thumbed to the point of falling apart. Many complicated ideas are put across very clearly by the author. At the end of each chapter there are questions to test the students understanding of the work. There are many worked examples of calculations which are well set out, cross referenced and easy to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Process Heat Transfer by Kern 22 Aug. 2010
By Pinco Pallino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is a treatise on heat exchanger that is very easy to grasp and provides a variety of worked examples that are applicable to real plant situations. It is complemented by a large number of tables.

Being a second hand book, it has been used and preserved in excellent condition. Very good buy.
5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 26 Jun. 2013
By Hadrig in Mobile - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After more than sixty years, no book can match Donald Kern;s book as a heat transfer reference.
Book arrived in excellent condition, considering its age.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great book. Wrong order delivered. 20 July 2014
By Carla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We returned the book due to the delivery of the soft cover instead of the hard cover.
It was targeted for to users from India but we are from the Caribbean.
However, we got a full refund on returning the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for the Practicing Design Engineer 24 Dec. 1997
By tsedwards@bigfoot.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is the classic in practical heat transfer design. The first few chapters cover theory, while the remainder of the book is devoted to specific design problems...accompanied by fully detailed examples. Some readers may argue that it is too detailed (in today's age of computer simulators), however, stepping through details helps the designer gain an intuitive understanding of heat transfer design considerations. From single component to multiple component heat transfer with phase change (including accounting for the presence of non-condensibles), it's covered, though dated in its approach (the book was first published in 1950). In summary, if you are looking for a book that bridges the gap between theory and actual operation, look no further!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated but Critical Text 13 Mar. 2006
By Dirk J. Willard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Although this book was written in 1950, the text is still critical. I used the section on direct-contact heat exchangers to design a contact condenser back in 2002. The text is still relevant, the examples current and useful, and some calculation methods still not covered properly in more advanced text. I should point out that although some of the equations are old, they are simplier to use than newer text and require fewer inputs. Besides, when are you going to need calculations accurate to beyond 90%?
