This book was developed during Professor Ghiaasiaan's twelve years of teaching a graduate-level course on convection heat and mass transfer. It is ideal for a graduate course covering the theory and practice of convection heat and mass transfer. The book treats well-established theory and practice but is also enriched by its coverage of modern areas such as flow in microchannels, computational fluid dynamics-based design and analysis methods. It is primarily concerned with convection heat transfer, with the essentials of mass transfer also covered. The mass transfer material and problems are presented in such a way that they can be skipped if not required. The book is richly enhanced by examples and end-of-chapter exercises. A complete solutions manual is available to qualified instructors. The book includes eighteen appendices providing compilations of most essential property and mathematical information for analysis of convective heat and mass transfer more

About S. Mostafa Ghiaasiaan

Professor S. Mostafa Ghiaasiaan has been a member of the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering since 1991, after obtaining his PhD in thermal science from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1983 and working in the aerospace and nuclear power industries for eight years. His industrial research and development activity was on modeling and simulation of transport processes, multiphase flow, and nuclear reactor thermal-hydraulics and safety. His current research areas include nuclear reactor thermal-hydraulics, particle transport, cryogenics and cryocoolers, and multiphase flow and change-of-phase heat transfer in microchannels. He has more than 150 academic publications, including 80 journal articles, on transport phenomena and multiphase flow. Among the honors he has received for his publications are the Chemical Engineering Science's Most Cited Paper for 2003-6 Award, the National Heat Transfer Conference Best Paper Award (1999), and the Science Applications International Corporation Best Paper Award (1990 and 1988). He has been a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American Nuclear Society (ANS) for more than twenty years and was elected an ASME Fellow in 2004. Currently he is the executive editor of Annals of Nuclear Energy for Asia, Africa and Australia. This is his second book with Cambridge University Press, after Two-Phase Flow, Boiling, and Condensation: In Conventional and Miniature Systems (2007).show more

Review quote

'Throughout the whole book, the author has made large pedagogical efforts in order to help the reader who tries to assimilate the different notions which are presented. The book will be useful for students who want to be acquainted with the thermodynamics of fluid flows and to researchers who will find here a complete survey of this science.' Alain Brillard, Zentralblatt MATH 'Intended primarily as a graduate-level text, this book strikes a balance between presenting the theory and practice of convective heat and mass transfer, and ... flow in microchannels and CFD-based design analysis methods.'
