Process Heat Transfer


Process Heat Transfer


An Indispensable Resource for Practicing Engineers

By Donald Q. Kern

This seminal text has been a “cornerstone of all engineering curricula and practice” for over half a century and remains a vital reference for engineers today. Kern begins with an overview of heat transfer theory before focusing on specific design problems commonly experienced by engineers in the field--using numerous easy to understand and effective examples to help convey principles. The broadly applicable empirical calculation methods, extensive tables, and use of industry language and methodology make Process Heat Transfer a convenient and essential reference tool. A sample of just some of the chapters include:

· Counterflow
· Parallel-Counterflow
· Flow Arrangement for Increased Heat Recovery
· Streamline Flow and Free Convection
· Condensation of Single Vapors
· Vaporizers, Evaporators, and Reboilers
