"Developed from the authors 30 years of teaching a graduate-level intermediate heat transfer course, Analytical Heat Transfer explains how to analyze and solve conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer problems. Suitable for entry-level graduate students, the book fills the gap between basic heat transfer undergraduate courses and advanced heat transfer graduate courses.The author places emphasis on modeling and solving engineering heat transfer problems analytically, rather than simply applying the equations and correlations for engineering problem calculations. He describes many well-known analytical methods and their solutions, such as Bessel functions, separation of variables, similarity method, integral method, and matrix inversion method. He also presents step-by-step mathematical formula derivations, analytical solution procedures, and numerous demonstration examples of heat transfer applications.By providing a strong analytical background, the text enables students to tackle complex engineering heat transfer problems encountered in practice. This analytical knowledge also helps them to read and understand heat transfer-related research papers"--

"Preface Fundamental Heat Transfer is a required course for all mechanical, chemical, nuclear, and aerospace engineering undergraduate students. This senior-level undergraduate course typically covers conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer. Advanced Heat Transfer courses are also required for most engineering graduate students. These graduate level courses are typically taught as an individual course named Conduction, Convection, or Radiation. Many universities also offer an Intermediate Heat Transfer or Advanced Heat Transfer course to cover conduction, convection, and radiation for engineering graduate students. In these cases, however, there are not many textbooks available which cover conduction, convection, and radiation at the graduate level. I have taught an Intermediate Heat Transfer course in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University since 1980. This book has evolved from a series of my lecture notes for teaching a graduate-level intermediate heat transfer course over the past 30 years. Many M.S. degree students majoring in Thermal and Fluids have taken this course as their only graduate-level heat transfer course. And many Ph.D. degree candidates have taken this course to prepare for their heat transfer qualifying examinations as well as to prepare for their advanced level courses in conduction, convection, or radiation. This book bridges the gap between undergraduate level basic heat transfer and graduate level advanced heat transfer as well as serves the need of entry level graduate students. "--
