Heat Transfer: A Systematic Learning Approach presents valuable tools for understanding heat transfer mechanisms and provides a clear understanding of complex turbulent flows. It gives a comprehensive introduction to topics of heat transfer, including conduction, convection, thermal radiation, and nanofluids.

Covering both traditional analytical models for canonical flows and modern turbulence modeling approaches for heat transfer, the book discusses complex impinging jet flow, phase change flows, nanofluids, and convective mass transfer flow. The text includes numerous end-of-chapter problems to enhance student understanding and different solving approaches. It offers the basic flow and energy analysis along with useful MAPLE code to facilitate the learning process.

The book is intended for senior undergraduate mechanical, aerospace, and chemical engineering students taking courses in heat transfer.

Instructors will be able to utilize a Solutions Manual, Jupyter Notebook programmes, and Figure Slides for their courses.

The eBook+ version includes the following enhancements:

  • Pop-up glossary terms: Hovering over a highlighted word will reveal the definition in a pop-up bubble.
  • Video: Videos are positioned appropriately within the text to enhance understanding and can be played, paused and rewound using the integrated controls.
  • Quizzes: Multiple choice quiz questions are provided at the end of each chapter to ensure that the reader has grasped key concepts.
