Here is a new edition of the well-received work on design, construction, and operation of heat exchangers. The author demonstrates how to apply theories of fluid mechanics and heat transfer to practical problems posed by design, testing, and installation of heat exchangers. Tables and data have been brought up to date, and there is new material on problems of vibration and fouling, and on optimization of energy use in the chemical process and manufacturing industries. The book covers all basic principles of heat exchanger design, and addresses many specialized situations encountered in engineering applications. The previous edition of this book was published in 1966. The volume has been designed to aid mechanical, chemical and nuclear engineers doing designs and installations, plant engineers and energy engineers maintaining systems, and students in mechanical, chemical and nuclear engineering.
