This book is designed as a textbook for mechanical engineering seniors or beginning graduate students. The book provides a reasonable theoretical basis for a subject that has traditionally had a very strong experimental base. The core of the book is devoted to boundary layer theory with special emphasis on the laminar and turbulent thermal boundary layer. Two chapters on heat exchanger theory are included since this subject is one of the principle application areas of convective heat transfer.
