and mass transfer textbooks have been published over the last several decades. The field of heat and mass transfer has advanced many-fold during its evolution due to the development of new knowledge, techniques, and applications. If one examines the evolution of our understanding of heat and mass transfer, it can be seen that the first phase was dominated by the development of experimental results and correlations, as well as techniques for conventional problems related to momentum, heat and mass transfer, with primary emphasis on non-dimensional analysis. The second phase primarily involved the development of simple theoretical tools to predict these classical results using concepts such as boundary layer theory and kinetic theory, which provide some very useful physical insights and effective design tools for practicing thermal engineers. Phase three began with the development of large digital computers and more efficient computational techniques. We were able to develop much better physical insight into complex heat and mass transfer problems via the utilization of such tools. Furthermore, state-of-the-art experimental measurement techniques – including optics and data acquisition systems – produced vast amounts of experimental data in the field of heat and mass transfer. As we proceed into the fourth phase, one should realize the challenges and opportunities, such as the instant and ready availability of resources at one’s fingertips through the Internet from any point in the world. Secondly, we cannot continue business as usual; i.e., the cookbook approach that was employed in the development of some of the existing textbooks. We must integrate innovation, critical thought, and modern relevance into our textbooks so as to educate the engineers of the 21st century in a globally competitive market. Furthermore, most of the applications in the field of heat and mass transfer so far have pertained to traditional power and thermal engineering and conventional energy systems, as well as space activities. Modern technologies and new applications, e.g., nanotechnology, biotechnology, energy, material processing and information technology, will likely play a major role in the development of curricula in future years. Globally, universities need to better align heat and mass transfer in the engineering curricula, as werll as the nature of academic experiences, with the challenges and opportunities that engineers will face in this digital environment. Traditionally, heat and mass transfer at the graduate level is taught in four separate courses: heat conduction, convective heat transfer, mass transfer and xii Advanced Heat and Mass Transfer Amir Faghri, Yuwen Zhang, and John Howell Copyright © 2010 Global Digital Press radiation. The materials covered in these courses are rather extensive while some of them are even irrelevant. Graduate students are not given appropriate exposure to topics related to modern emerging technologies. There is currently no advanced-level textbook available that covers all of the pertinent topics (heat conduction, convective heat transfer, mass transfer, radiation, and multiphase phenomena) in a single volume. Therefore, we are hoping that this text will help to fill this gap. There are, of course, excellent generalized undergraduate textbooks, as well as advanced graduate-level books on single topics. However, due to curriculum limitations or small faculty sizes, a number of universities are offering single courses that cover all of these intermediate and advanced heat and mass transfer topics. The purpose of this textbook is to present the subject of heat and mass transfer with a focus on the significant advances in the field during the last decade, while emphasizing the basic, fundamental principles. Thus, we hope to provide a single textbook that these courses may use, so as to avoid requiring the use of several textbooks. A copyrighted solutions manual and PowerPoint presentation package are provided only to those instructors who adopt the book for the course. As the authors, we wish to express our appreciation to our following postdoctoral fellows and graduate students who generously reviewed individual chapters based on their expertise, and provided suggestions for improvements and necessary corrections: H. Bahrami, J. Huang, H. Shabgard, N. Sharifi, S. Wang, and J. Zhou. In addition, we would like to acknowledge the contributions of students over the last several years, who were taught from the manuscripts out of which this book evolved. This textbook is developed for use as an advanced-level undergraduate or graduate textbook on heat and mass transfer for various disciplines. We recognize a new trend at a number of universities to offer a single course in advanced heat and mass transfer, and therefore we have tried to cover the materials that various disciplines might wish to include in such a course. The authors were fortunate to develop previous heat transfer textbooks on various subjects; thus, some of the materials are taken from these sources. Your suggestions, comments, and criticisms are appreciated.
