#### Thermodynamics of Natural Systems

Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 84.00Comprehensive advanced textbook on thermodynamics for Earth scientists, suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate students. more...

#### Mathematical Models of Convection

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 154.00Phenomena 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...

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

Springer 2010; US$ 159.00When a heating fluid transfers heat to a heated fluid through a wall, if the fluids are in parallel flow or counter flow, it is possible to compute exactly both the transferred heat and the temperatures of the fluids via well-known equations. This holds true both for design and verification computation. However, the motion of the fluids is never in... more...

#### Transient Heat Transfer

Springer 2011; US$ 49.95This book presents a new and direct computational method for transient heat transfer. The approach uses the well-known dimensionless Biot number and a second dimensionless number introduced by the author. The methodology allows for a transient heat transfer calculations without using finite difference programs. The book presents many examples and various... more...

#### Engineering Heat Transfer

Springer 2010; US$ 209.00This book is a generalist textbook; it is designed for anybody interested in heat transmission, including scholars, designers and students. Two criteria constitute the foundation of Annaratone's books, including the present one. The first one consists of indispensable scientific rigor without theoretical exasperation. The inclusion in the book... more...

#### Tables for the Energy and Photon Distribution in Equilibrium Radiation Spectra

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95Tables for the Energy and Photon Distribution in Equilibrium Radiation Spectra covers a collection of tables used for calculating the energy and photon distribution in equilibrium radiation. The book discusses the main characteristics of radiation; the equilibrium between radiation and matter using Kirchhoff's laws; the energy and photon distribution... more...

#### Solutions to Problems of Controlling Long Waves with the Help of Micro-Structure Tools

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 26.00In recent times the idea of cloaking has become very popular. After radar and sonar were discovered, problems of "visibility" reduction for physical bodies in air (by electromagnetic waves) or in water (by acoustical waves) have immediately become serious areas of research in physics. New technologies (sensors, actuators) of high spatial-temporal... more...

#### Mass Transfer

Wiley 2007; US$ 191.00Mass transfer phenomena can now be observed in many fields of industry. In particular, separation processes, which make up the vast majority of industrial production procedures, are governed by the physics of mass transfer, and their design and optimization depends heavily on knowledge in this field. This didactic approach to the principles and modeling... more...

#### The System Concept and Its Application to Engineering

Springer 2012; US$ 129.00This book applies the system concept to design by developing a deeper understanding of the fundamentals, by defining design and its engineering characteristics and by applying the system concept to early stages of design, where it has the greatest impact. more...
