Process Heat Transfer presents comprehensive coverage of both classical and new topics on the subject. Classical aspects discussed include shell-and-tube heat exchangers, double pipe exchangers, reboilers, and condensers. New topics covered include process integration, heat exchanger selection, heat transfer associated with thermodynamic cycles, and ohmic heating. The book includes both worked examples and problems at the end of each chapter. Extensive sections on the fundamental principles of heat transfer and fluid flow, in addition to a wealth of material on applied techniques and problems, make Process Heat Transfer an invaluable text/reference for students and professionals in mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, and applied heat transfer. "In summary, the essential usefulness of this book is as a 'one-stop' source of information on the basic theory and mechanism of heat transfer, typical correlations and methods for use in thermal design, and all types of modern process heat transfer equipment...the book represents very good value and can certainly be recommended as a textbook for general courses on process heat transfer...it will also be very useful as a general source book for the practicing engineer who needs access to a wide range of information on process heat transfer in a single volume...." - From a review in Heat Transfer Engineering
