Product description


"This classical text, which has inspired generations of heat transfer students and researchers, has been updated and improved to make its content current with valuable online resources. The book covers very fundamental concepts of thermal radiation and radiative transport in participating and nonparticipating media, recent advances in inverse problems and near-field thermal radiation, and real-world applications including solar energy conversion."
―Zhuomin Zhang, Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA

"The most complete and wide cover of all aspects of radiative transfer. Clear explanations. Very good exercises."
―Vladimir Solovjov (Soloviev), Mechanical Engineering Department, BYU

"A new edition of this well-known textbook is always considered as a major event. Once again, this new edition of the ‘’Howell – Siegel – Mengüç’’ textbook on thermal radiation heat transfer will prove to be indispensable and a gold mine for students, engineers and researchers. … new comers to thermal radiation and already experts will surely be very contended with this new edition."
―Rodolphe Vaillon, CNRS

"In general, the material strikes a good balance between providing the student a high level pedagogical explanation of complex phenomena, while retaining the details needed for implementing modern solution techniques. The textbook is an invaluable resource for teaching graduate students, and an excellent reference for the experienced researcher."
―Kyle Daun, University of Waterloo

"This text is a classic in radiation heat transfer. The new edition is updated with better arrangement in numerical solution methods of radiative transfer equation coupled with conduction and/or convection heat transfer and gas radiation properties. The organization is more logical and streamlined. The treatment maintains the comprehensive and fundamental nature of this text."
―Pei-feng Hsu, Florida Institute of Technology

"This book is a classic. I learned about radiation heat transfer from it years ago and with all the improvements made, it is still probably the best for the students of today to learn about radiation. The coverage is encyclopedic, yet every topic is explained clearly and in great detail. Chapters also include figures, data, examples and exercises that make the book useful as a text."
―Ernesto Gutierrez-Miravete, Professor of Practice

"… Professor M. Pinar Mengüç has joined the team of authors, contributing with his extensive expertise in radiative heat transfer. Thus Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer is since authored by Howell, Siegel and Mengüç. The new team with its reinforced skills assures a bright future for the book."
―Jean-François Sacadura, INSA Lyon – France

"… a successful combination of well-known formalisms and up-to-date solutions and data that the radiative transfer community offers through modern papers and conferences. Hence, the reader can find the classical descriptions of the most often used methods, plus the updated derivations which extend these methods. … useful both for engineers and researchers, from practical applications to modern developments."
―Pascal Boulet, Professor at Université de Lorraine, France

"… a really great resource for engineers and researchers on radiative heat transfer, for beginners but also for more advanced readers. It improves at each new edition and reflects the most recent developments on radiative transfer. It is undoubtedly the most comprehensive resource on the topic …"
―Dr. Frederic Andre, CNRS

"… updates the coverage of this authoritative textbook and completes an excellent textbook for graduate classes on radiation heat transfer. … an extremely helpful resource to researchers, engineers and scientists in the Field of thermal radiation."
―Costas Grigoropoulos, University of California, Berkeley

"… In a few words: this book altogether offers a complete and clear vision of thermal radiation and a detailed analysis of any specific process it involves. I find it enormously helpful for anyone approaching the domain, at any level."
―Denis Lemonnier, Institut Prime, CNRS / ISAE-ENSMA / Univ. of Poitiers

About the Author

John R. Howell received his academic degrees from Case Western Reserve University (Case Institute of Technology), Cleveland, Ohio. He began his engineering career as a researcher at NASA Lewis (Glenn) Research Center (1961–1968) and then took academic positions at the University of Houston (1978–1988) and the University of Texas at Austin, where he remained until retirement in 2012. He is presently Ernest Cockrell, Jr., Memorial Chair emeritus at The University of Texas.

Howell pioneered the use of the Monte Carlo method for the analysis of radiative heat transfer in complex systems that contain absorbing, emitting, and scattering media.

Robert Siegel received his ScD in mechanical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1953. For two years he worked at General Electric Company in the Heat Transfer Consulting Office and on analyzing the heat transfer characteristics of the Seawolf submarine nuclear reactor. He joined NASA in 1955 and was a senior research scientist at the Lewis/Glenn Research Center until he retired in 1999. He was an associate editor for the Journal of Heat Transfer and the Journal of Thermophysics and Heat Transfer. He has written numerous papers, and given graduate heat transfer courses as an adjunct professor at three universities.

M. Pinar Mengüç completed his BSc and MS in mechanical engineering from the Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara, Turkey. He earned his PhD in mechanical engineering from Purdue University in 1985. He joined the University of Kentucky in 1985 and was promoted to associate and full professor in 1988 and 1993, respectively. In 2008, he became an Engineering Alumni Association professor .. In 2011 he joined Özyegin University in Istanbul as the founding head of the Mechanical Engineering Department and founding director of the Center for Energy, Environment, and Economy (CEEE).
