Heat Transfer Engineering


This volume is concerned with the heat transfer from extended surfaces, such as fins attached to a primary transfer surface. These are used extensively within heat exchanges and on heat transfer equipment to ensure that a specified rate of heat transfer is achieved between a heat source and sink. All of the chapters come from invited contributors and follow a unified outline and presentation.

Contents: Overview of Extended Surface Heat Transfer – Fins; Coupled Forced Convection, Conduction and Thermal Radiation of a Rectangular Fin in a Confined Space; Mechanistic Investigation of the Performance of a Triangular Fin; Conjugate Free and Mixed Convection Heat Transfer from a Vertical Fin Embedded in a Porous Medium; About Fin Performance and Optimization; Two-Dimensional Effects in Extended Surface Assessment; Steady-State Heat Transfer and Performance Assessment; Multi-Louvred Fin Surfaces; Methodology for the Design of Multi-Stream Plate-Fin Heat Exchangers; Incorporation of a Consideration of Operability into the Design of Multi-Stream Heat Exchangers.
