    Heat Exchanger Design Handbook, Third Edition is a three-volume set that provides a comprehensive review on heat exchanger selection, design, installation, commissioning and operation, and maintenance and performance in-service.

    Volume I presents heat exchanger classification, applications, thermohydraulic fundamentals, thermal design, and construction details of various heat exchangers. Volume II discusses mechanical designs, materials selection, fabrication methods and quality control, inspection and non-destructive examination during manufacturing, and manufacturing methods such as mechanical fabrication, brazing, and soldering. Volume III provides details on heat exchanger installation, commissioning, operation and performance monitoring, thermal power plant, boiler and condenser, tube failures, and repair practices. The new edition includes recent advances in the selection, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of heat exchangers.

    This three-volume set serves as a useful reference for researchers, graduate students, and engineers in the field of heat exchanger design, including pressure vessel designers and manufacturers.
