Heat Transfer by Prof.PK Nag is suggested as textbook for studying the following subjects:
Heat Transfer in Mechanical Engineering Semester 5 (Mumbai University)
Heat and energy studies form an important aspect of engineering studies in many core engineering disciplines. Heat And Mass Transfer is a book that discusses many of the important concepts of energy studies and mass transfer, and explains various topics in easy-to-understand language. The book makes liberal usage of case studies, solved examples, and other exercises to explain various topics. The author also explains various physical phenomena and other occurrences, in detail for students.
The book is divided into ten main chapters that explain various topics in detail, and the second half of the book contains five appendices that are to be used for further reading. The main chapters are conduction heat transfer at steady state, condensation and boiling, heat exchangers, some special heat transfer processes, and heat transfer by natural convection and mass transfer. The appendices cover thermophysical properties of matter, mathematical relations and functions, and internal systems of units. The last two appendices contain miscellaneous solved problems, that will help students prepare for any exam in the future, and it also has fill in the blanks and true or false questions.
Heat And Mass Transfer covers important topics extensively, and can be used by students as a guidebook to understand various concepts better. The third edition of the book, written by P K Nag, was published by McGraw Hill Education India Pvt. Ltd in 2011, and is available in paperback.
