Heat Transfer: Lessons with Examples Solved by MATLAB

By Tien-Mo Shih, University of Maryland

This book provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamental concepts of heat transfer, including examples encountered in daily life. These examples are modeled and solved both analytically and numerically. MATLAB computer codes are included in the main text and appendices. Topics include Fourier's law, wind-chill factor, one-dimensional steady-state heat conduction, and steady-state fins. MATLAB is introduced and used to solve numerous examples in the book.
