Advances in Industrial Heat Transfer presents the basic principles of industrial heat transfer enhancement. Serving as a reference and guide for future research, this book presents a complete approach, from redesigning equipment to the use of nanofluids in industry.

Based on the latest methods of the experiment and their interpretation, this book presents a unified conception of the industrial heat transfer process and procedures which will help decrease global energy consumption. Containing both theoretical and practical results, the book uses text, pictures, graphs, and definitions to illustrate points and highlight concepts.


"…intended for practicing engineers and those who are interested in applied heat transfer…This reference book is a collection of industrial heat transfer topics that should assist thermal engineers to better understand and apply principles of thermal sciences to practical heat transfer problems."

—Heat Transfer Engineering, Vol. 36 No. 5, 2015
