""The second edition updates information and terminology to reflect changes over the past 15 years." "SciTech Book News, March 2003 Book News, Inc.."
"'The second edition of "Computational Heat Transfer is, as the authors state, an updated and extended version of the first edition...The character of the book remains a survey of numerical methods, primarily finite differences and finite element, for solution of heat transfer problems... The emphasis is on conduction and convection, although radiation is treated in its own chapter and there are interesting case studies of multinode processes, some of importance in manufacturing. The presentations are good, and the references from the literature are well selected to direct independent readings for those who wish to delve deeper.' Louis C. Burmeister, University of Kansas, "AIAA Journal, Vol. 41, No, June 2003."
