#### Popularization and People

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95The Niels Bohr Collected Works are now complete with the publication of Volume 12, Popularization and People (1911-1962). Niels Bohr is generally regarded as one of the most influential physicists of the twentieth century. The following are only some of the high points. In 1913, Bohr proposed a revolutionary model of the atom breaking with classical... more...

#### The Political Arena (1934-1961)

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95Part I is devoted to Niels Bohr's mission to promote an "open world" between nations, that is, full sharing of information in the scientific and technical, as well as in the cultural spheres the scientific and technical, as well as in the cultural spheres. He started his mission immediately upon escaping from Nazi-occupied Denmark in the autumn of... more...

#### Evaporation and Evapotranspiration

Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 130.64This book details theoretical and applied aspects of the evaporation and evapotranspiration process supported by data from experimental studies. It presents a new technology, remote sensing application to evaporation and evapotranspiration estimation. more...

#### Mathematical Models of Convection

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 141.48Phenomena of convection are abundant in nature as well as in industry. This volume addresses the subject of convection from the point of view of both, theory and application. While the first three chapters provide a refresher on fluid dynamics and heat transfer theory, the rest of the book describes the modern developments in theory. Thus... more...

#### Transient Heat Transfer

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 46.80Making use of the dimensionless Biot number, this volume presents a new, direct computational method for transient heat transfer. The approach allows readers to make transient heat transfer calculations without using finite difference programs. more...

#### Engineering Heat Transfer

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 195.96This book serves as a concise reference for the fast solution of practical problems in heat transmission. It analyzes heat transfer by radiation, illustrates the required behavior when examining heat transfer in heat exchangers, and discusses pressure drops. more...

#### Handbook for Heat Exchangers and Tube Banks design

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 119.75The motion of fluids is never in parallel- or counter-flow in heat exchangers and tube banks, leading to complexities in the equations for calculating their transferred heat and temperatures. This review of the topic includes 70 design and verification tables. more...
