This new publication is intended primarily as the chief resource for a graduate course in thermal radiation heat transfer in engineering. The book should also be very useful for researchers and designers of heat transfer equipment. In contrast to existing books, the text takes a holistic view, treating radiation as a volumetric phenomenon, and then treating surface radiation as a special case.
A CD containing a popular engineering software package is included for the expeditious solving of radiation problems, and the smoothed-band model is introduced for handling gaseous exchange.
