Thermal convection is often encountered by the scientists and engineers while designing or analyzing flows involving exchange of energy. The book is a unified document that captures the physical insight into convective heat transfer, thorough analytical and numerical treatments. It also focusses on the latest developments in theory of convective energy and mass transport. Aimed at graduates, senior undergraduates and the engineers involved in research and development activities, it provides new material on Boiling, including nuances of physical processes. In all the derivations, step-by-step and systematic approaches have been followed.
