About This Book:
The book addresses the needs of mechanical and chemical engineering students and teachers as well as practising engineers.
Provides relevant property data in the form of an easily readable alphabet at different temperatures:
Metals and alloys, liquids and gases of engineering interest
Construction and insulating materials, pure elements, heat transfer correlation side by side with signalling in the easily readable form:
Operating both steady and unstable condition. Both forced and natural convection under different flow configuration irradiation for different geometric configurations. Radiation data for surfaces and solar radiation. Heat exchangers of various configurations, including storage type and fin type.
Mass transfer data for different combinations of diffuse elements.
Property data for multiple heat pipe materials at different temperatures.
Transport property data for steam at various temperatures and pressures. Transport property data for four common refrigerants at different temperatures. The equations involved are long and complex when the provision of charts. The multicolour version increases clarity and readability.
