Description - Convective Heat Transfer by I. Pop
Interest in studying the phenomena of convective heat and mass transfer between an ambient fluid and a body which is immersed in it stems both from fundamental considerations, such as the development of better insights into the nature of the underlying physical processes which take place, and from practical considerations, such as the fact that these idealized configurations serve as a launching pad for modelling the analogous transfer processes in more realistic physical systems. Such idealized geometries also provide a test ground for checking the validity of theoretical analyses. Among several geometries which have received research attention are plates, circular and elliptical cylinders, and spheres, although much information is also available for some other bodies, such as corrugated surfaces or bodies of relatively complicated shapes. The book is a unified progress report which captures the spirit of the work in progress in boundary-layer heat transfer research and also identifies potential difficulties and areas for further study.
