This book aims at a theoretical and practical treatment of both conduction and induction heating. They share a common theory, one being the "mirror image" of the other, and so one gets two for the price of one. The book comprises four parts: conduction theory, induction theory, heat flow and practice. Modern induction practice is treated in four chapters - through heating, surface heating, special applications and metal melting. In addition, there is a smaller chapter on conduction heating. Although, at first sight, this might seem a lot of theory, the practical chapters make up half of the book and the theory itself is practically-oriented. Throughout, the emphasis is on fundamentals and understanding, usually starting from first principles, with plenty of worked examples. Much of the theory is new, being either presented differently or solving new problems. There are new approaches to tube heating, both for DRH and induction; these show clearly the relationship to the solid solution. There are also chapters on saturation and the effect of permeability.
'this is probably the first full length book on the subject. It covers just about every aspect of CPD and then some. The information is presented in a clear and straightforward manner and is easy to assimilate. Anybody who wishes to become an expert on CPD will find this book an excellent introduction.' -- Malcolm Sillars, BCS Professional Director * The Computer Bulletin * 'Lorriman really knows his subject and fortunately has decided to share his knowledge. Full of practical advice on how to tackle CPD.' * IEE Review *
