Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This classic text on fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass transport has been brought up to date in this second edition. The author has added a chapter on 'Boiling and Condensation' that expands and rounds out the book's comprehensive coverage on transport phenomena. These new topics are particularly important to current research in renewable energy resources involving technologies such as windmills and solar panels. The book provides you and other materials science and engineering students and professionals with a clear yet thorough introduction to these important concepts. It balances the explanation of the fundamentals governing fluid flow and the transport of heat and mass with common applications of these fundamentals to specific systems existing in materials engineering. You will benefit from: * The use of familiar examples such as air and water to introduce the influences of properties and geometry on fluid flow. * An organization with sections dealing separately with fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass transport. This sequential structure allows the development of heat transport concepts to employ analogies of heat flow with fluid flow and the development of mass transport concepts to employ analogies with heat transport. * Ample high-quality graphs and figures throughout. * Key points presented in chapter summaries. * End of chapter exercises and solutions to selected problems. * An all new and improved comprehensive index.

Riassunto: Transport phenomena are the processes and rules by which heat, mass, and momentum move through and between materials and systems. Along with thermodynamics, mechanics, and electromagnetism, this body of knowledge and theory forms the core principals of all physical systems and is essential to all engineering disciplines. This new edition of a classic work on how transport phenomena behave in materials and materials systems will provide expanded coverage and up-to-date theory and knowledge from today's research on heat transfer and fluid behavior, with ample examples of practical applications to materials processing and engineering. Professional engineers and students alike will find one of the clearest and most accessible approaches to an often difficult and challenging subject. Logical pedagogy, with clear applications to real materials engineering problems will make more vivid the abstract body of knowledge that comprises today's understanding of transport phenomena. Readers will find: a new chapter on boiling and condensation; revised chapters on heat transport, mass transport in solid state and mass transport in fluids; revised and expanded end-of-chapter problems and exercises S.I. Units throughout; extensive Appendices of standard materials properties; and, for classroom use, a Solutions Manual is available.
L'autore: Professor of Materials Engineering, Purdue University.
