Presents a comprehensive, accessible and readily usable reference to the necessary formulations, numerical schemes, and innovative solution techniques for solving problems of heat and mass transfer and related fluid flows. Grouped by major sets of methods and functions, the text describes new or improved, as well as standard, procedures. This collection of contributions from leading figures in the field covers parabolic systems, hyperbolic systems, integral and integro-differential systems, Monte Carlo and perturbation methods, inverse problems and more.

Choice Review

A timely and welcome addition to the heat transfer literature that is enthusiastically recommended for the technical library. The 28 contributors, all internationally recognized experts, have collaborated on 22 chapters that span the field. Each chapter is referenced and is intended to stand alone; careful editing produces uniform nomenclature, clarity, and precision. The main goal was to provide solution methodology for numerical heat transfer and related fluid mechanics processes. Because of the great breadth and depth of coverage, this handbook should be well received by both beginner and experienced worker in heat transfer analysis. Computer program source references generally are provided, but there are only a few specific program listings, given where they can clarify the basic material. Subject areas include finite element and finite difference methods in parabolic, elliptic, and hyperbolic problems; a comparison of finite difference and finite element methods; integral and integro differential methods; perturbation, Monte Carlo, and finite analytic methods; moving boundary problems; inverse problems; graphical display procedures; grid generation procedures; and supercomputer programming. -J.
