Heat Transfer Engineering: Fundamentals and Techniques reviews the core mechanisms of heat transfer and provides modern methods to solve practical problems encountered by working practitioners, with a particular focus on developing engagement and motivation. The book reviews fundamental concepts in conduction, forced convection, free convection, boiling, condensation, heat exchangers and mass transfer succinctly and without unnecessary exposition. Throughout, copious examples drawn from current industrial practice are examined with an emphasis on problem-solving for interest and insight rather than the procedural approaches often adopted in courses.

The book contains numerous important solved and unsolved problems, utilizing modern tools and computational sources wherever relevant. A subsection on common issues and recent advances is presented in each chapter, encouraging the reader to explore a greater diversity of problems.
