Introduction -- General Law of Thermal Conduction -- Heat Diffusion in a Plate of Infinite Thickness -- Heat Diffusion in a Plate of Finite Thickness -- Plate immersed in Fluid -- Plate Heated or Cooled on one Side -- Tube Heated or Cooled on Outside Surface -- Plate Radiated on Both Sides -- Plate Radiated on One Side -- Transient Heat Transfer through a Plane Wall -- Transient Heat Transfer through a Curved Wall (tube).

This book presents a new and direct computational method for transient heat transfer. The approach uses the well-known dimensionless Biot number and a second dimensionless number introduced by the author. The methodology allows for a transient heat transfer calculations without using finite difference programs. The book presents many examples and various tables demonstrating the potential of this new methodology. Many diagrams illustrate the physical phenomena.
