This extensively revised 4th edition provides an up-to-date, comprehensive single source of information on the important subjects in engineering radiative heat transfer. It presents the subject in a progressive manner that is excellent for classroom use or self-study, and also provides an annotated reference to literature and research in the field. The foundations and methods for treating radiative heat transfer are developed in detail, and the methods are demonstrated and clarified by solving example problems. The examples are especially helpful for self-study. The treatment of spectral band properties of gases has been made current and the methods are described in detail and illustrated with examples. The combination of radiation with conduction and/or convection has been given more emphasis nad has been merged with results for radiation alone that serve as a limiting case; this increases practicality for energy transfer in translucent solids and fluids. A comprehensive catalog of configuration factors on the CD that is included with each book provides over 290 factors in algebraic or graphical form. Homework problems with answers are given in each chapter, and a detailed and carefully worked solution manual is available for instructors.

John R. Howell is presently Research Professor at the University of Texas-Austin. He previously was a heat transfer researcher at the NASA Lewis Research Center, and a professor at the University of Houston. Dr. Howell served as Program Director of the Thermal Transport and Thermal Processing Program with the National Science Foundation from 1994-1995. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Science, as well as being a Fellow of ASME and AIAA. He has received numerous achievement awards.
M. Pinar Mengüç received his Ph.D from Purdue University and has been Engineering Alumni Association Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kentucky. He has made significant contributions to the field of thermal radiation heat transfer, particularly in the areas of radiative transfer modeling in multidimensional geometries, inverse radiation problems, laser diagnostics in combustion systems, particle characterization, and nano-scale thermal transport including near-field radiation transfer. Dr. Mengüç was elected as an Honorary Professor, ESPOL, Guayaquil, Ecuador and is a Fellow of both ASME and ICHMT. He presently serves as Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer. Currently he is the Drector of Center for Energy, Environment and Economy at Ozyegin University in Istanbul, Turkey.
Robert Siegel, Sc.D. is presently a heat transfer consultant. Prior to this he was a Senior Research Scientist at NASA Lewis Research Center, where he worked on heat transfer research for 44 years. Dr. Siegel is a Fellow of both ASME and AIAA. He has received numerous achievement awards, authored 185 technical papers, and taught graduate level courses as an adjunct professor at three universities.Review:
"The book is primarily a textbook with all the topics needed in a typical graduate-level course on thermal radiation. However, the subject is so well presented and comprehensive that it may also serve as an independent-reading reference for those interested in thermal radiation..."
