Heat Transfer – J. P. Holman – 6th Edition


A text designed for introductory courses in , which also includes material on design and computer applications.

As one of the most popular heat texts, Jack ’s “Heat ” is noted for its clarity, accessible , and inclusion of many examples and problem sets. This edition retains the straight-forward, to-the-point style while covering both analytical and empirical approaches to the subject. Throughout the book, emphasis is placed on understanding while, at the same time, relying on meaningful experimental data in those situations that do not permit a simple analytical . New examples and templates provide students with updated resources for computer-numerical solutions.
