This book has established a reputation for its clarity and comprehensive treatment of the topic. In addition to covering the standard material expected in an undergraduate heat transfer text, Thomas provides practical methods and fresh insight pertaining to conduction and convection not available in other texts. In this connection, Thomas’ practical treatment of convection and heat exchangers has been judged to be “absolutely outstanding”. Other special features of the book include a huge number of excellent worked examples, and extensive appendices that enhance the readability of the text. The book is supported by (1) comprehensive software by Wu and Lumsdaine that covers all major topics in the book, and (2) separate problems and solutions manuals covering all aspects of the material presented in the book (for use by students and instructors). According to reviewers, this refreshing new undergraduate heat transfer book should provide very serious competition for! the market leader.
