Convective heat transfer is the result of fluid flowing between objects of different temperatures. Thus it may be the objective of a process (as in refrigeration) or it may be an incidental aspect of other processes. Intended for graduate students and for researchers entering the field, this text reviews in a concise and unified manner recent contributions to the principles of convective heat transfer for single and multi-phase systems: It summarizes the role of the fundamental mechanism and the governing differential equations, describes approximation schemes and phenomenological models, and examines their solutions and applications. After a review of the basic physics and thermodynamics, the book divides the subject into three parts. Part 1 deals with single-medium transfers, specifically with intraphase transfers in single-phase flows and with intramedium transfers in two-phase flows. Part 2 deals with fluid-solid transfer processes, both in cases where the interface is small and in cases where it is large, as well as liquid-liquid transfer processes. Part 3 considers three media, addressing both liquid-solid-solid and gas-liquid-solid systems. The emphasis on the presence multiple phases and on energy-conversion mechanisms, such as phase changes or chemical reactions, will make this text a valuable reference for practicing engineers. This new edition has been updated throughout and contains new examples and problems.

From the reviews of the second edition:

"Providing a comprehensive and concise treatment of convective heat transfer in single- and multiphase flows ... this book in its second edition appeals to both students (at a graduate level) and researchers. After a carefully written and inviting introduction (including historical remarks), the book is divided into three parts and contains a total of 8 chapters. ... Extensive bibliographical data, citation and subject index as well as many illustrating figures, tables and charts make this book a useful and welcome reference." (Nina Kirchner, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 974, 2001)

"This second edition of this book, part of the `Mechanical Engineering Series', has been updated throughout and contains new examples and problems. It reviews in a concise and unified manner recent contributions to the principles of convective heat transfer for single- and multiphase systems, summarizes the role of the fundamental mechanisms and the governing differential equations, describes approximation schemes and phenomenological models, and examines their solutions and applications." (Bulletin of the International Institute of Refrigeration, Issue 1, 2002)
