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


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

As one of the most popular heat texts, Jack Holman’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 writing style while covering both analytical and empirical approaches to the subject. Throughout the , emphasis is placed on physical 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 with updated resources for computer-numerical solutions.
