Convective Heat and Mass Transfer, Second Edition, is ideal for the graduate level study of convection heat and mass transfer, with coverage of well-established theory and practice as well as trending topics, such as nanoscale heat transfer and CFD. It is appropriate for both Mechanical and Chemical Engineering courses/modules.
"It is a well written textbook for graduate students as well as for engineers. Book covers recent topics including flow in microchannels and nanofluids."

"Convective Heat and Mass Transfer by Ghiaasiaan presents an in-depth yet concise analysis of heat, mass, and momentum transfer fundamentals. The book is a great resource for graduate students and professors in a variety of Engineering disciplines including Mechanical, Chemical, Nuclear, and Biomedical Engineering. A unique feature of this book is Ghiaasiaan’s strong emphasis on teaching mass transfer along with heat transfer in every chapter. Also, the new chapter on diffusion and convective transport of particles (Chapter 14) in the second edition is a great addition unique to this book. I highly recommend the book to all students, professors, and scientists interested in convective heat and mass transfer."
