Essential Engineering Mathematics - Michael Batty
This textbook covers topics such as functions, single variable calculus, multivariate calculus, differential equations and complex functions. The necessary linear algebra for multivariate calculus is also outlined. More advanced topics which have been omitted, but which you will certainly come across, are partial differential equations, Fourier transforms and Laplace transforms.

Engineering Thermodynamics - Tarik Al-Shemmeri
Thermodynamics is an essential subject taught to all science and engineering students. If the coverage of this subject is restricted to theoretical analysis, students will resort to memorising the facts in order to pass the examination. Therefore, this book is set out with the aim to present this subject from an angle of demonstration of how these laws are used in practical situation. This book is designed for the virtual reader in mind, it is concise and easy to read, yet it presents all the basic laws of thermodynamics in a simplistic and straightforward manner; plus many worked examples and a good section of unsolved tutorial problems.
Heat Transfer - Chris Long , Naser Sayma
This book explains the basic modes of heat transfer namely conduction, convection and radiation. Fundamental mathematical models representing the heat transfer modes are introduced and application engineering problems are discussed. The principles of heat exchangers operation are covered as well.
Heat Transfer: Exercises. - Chris Long , Naser Sayma
This Heat Transfer exercise book contains examples and full solutions to go with the Heat Transfer theory book. In the theory book the basic modes of heat transfer were explained. Namely conduction, convection and radiation. Hopefully this Heat Transfer exercise book will help you to gain further understanding of this subject.

Software Solutions to Problems on Heat Transfer - Heat Exchangers. - Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar
Heat Exchanger is one of the most commonly used process equipments in industry and research.
In this Volume, problems are solved on following topics:
- Overall heat transfer coefficient,
- Importance of ‘Fouling factor’,
- Analysis of heat exchangers by ‘Logarithmic Mean Temp Difference (LMTD)’ method, Correction factors for Cross-flow and Shell & Tube heat exchangers,
- Analysis of heat exchangers by ‘No. of Transfer Units (NTU – Effectiveness (ε)’ method, Compact heat exchangers etc.
Here also, problems are solved using the popular software, viz. “Mathcad”, “Engineering Equation Solver (EES)”, and MS EXCEL spreadsheet. Comments are included generously in the codes so that the logic behind the solutions is clear.

Software Solutions to Problems on Heat Transfer - Convection – Part I: Forced convection. - Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar
In this book, we shall study about Forced convection heat transfer.
When the flow of fluid is caused by an external agency such as a fan or pump or due to atmospheric disturbances, the resulting heat transfer is known as ‘Forced convection heat transfer’.
Exact mathematical solutions, even for simple convection heat transfer cases, are rather complicated and it is common practice to resort to empirical relations for solutions of problems involving convection heat transfer.
Here, we shall first solve problems on velocity and thermal boundary layers.
Next, since our emphasis will be on practical solutions with the use of empirical relations, we present several empirical relations to determine heat transfer and friction coefficients for flow over different geometries such as a flat plate, cylinder, tube bundles and sphere for flow under laminar and turbulent conditions.
Finally, flow inside tubes will be considered and determination of heat transfer coefficient by analogy with the mechanism of fluid flow will be explained.
As done in other books in this series, viz. “Software Solutions to Problems on Heat Transfer”, problems are solved with Mathcad, Engineering Equation Solver (EES) and EXCEL. Much emphasis is given on the use of these software to conduct parametric analysis and present graphical representation of results.

Software Solutions to Problems on Heat Transfer - Boiling and Condensation. - Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar
In this book, we present problems on Boiling and Condensation heat transfer, solved with Mathcad, Engineering Equation Solver (EES) and EXCEL.
Some of the applications of boiling and condensation are:
- Evaporators and condensers of a vapour compression refrigerating system
- Boilers and condensers of a steam power plant
- Reboilers and condensers of distillation columns of cryogenic and petrochemical plants
- Cooling of nuclear reactors and rocket motors
- Process heating and cooling etc.

Software Solutions to Problems on Heat Transfer - Radiation Heat Transfer – Part I. - Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar
Present Volume deals with the important subject of RADIATION HEAT TRANSFER.
In this book, many Functions are written on View Factors for various geometries, Radiation exchange in 2_zone and 3-zone enclosures, Radiation shields etc. in Mathcad, EES and EXCEL-VBA. These Functions enable us to perform the complicated calculations very easily.
In this Volume, presented in two parts, problems are solved on following topics:
Laws of Radiation and Radiation properties
View factors & Radiation energy exchange between black bodies
Electrical network method & Radiation energy exchange in 2-zone and 3-zone enclosures
Radiation shielding, Radiation error in temperature measurement.
Here also, problems are solved using the popular software, viz. “Mathcad”, “Engineering Equation Solver (EES)”, and MS EXCEL spreadsheet. Comments are included generously in the codes so that the logic behind the solutions is clear.

Software Solutions to Problems on Heat Transfer - Conduction: Part I. - Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar
This book contains solutions to problems in the area of Heat Transfer, as per the syllabus of B.E. and M.Tech. courses in Visweswaraya Technological University, Karnataka (and other Universities as well).
Problems are solved using four popular software, viz. “Mathcad”, “Engineering Equation Solver (EES)” , “Finite Element Heat Transfer (FEHT)” and MS EXCEL-2007. Comments are included generously in the codes so that the logic behind the solution is clear. An introductory chapter gives a brief overview of the softwares used.
Use of computer software helps in solving the problems fast and accurately. More importantly, parameter analysis (what – if analysis) and graphical visualization is done to make an in – depth analysis of the problem. Once a particular type of problem is solved, solving similar problems later becomes extremely easy. In addition, one can plot the data, curve fit, write functions for various properties or calculations and re-use them. These possibilities create interest, curiosity and wonder in the minds of students and enthuse them to know more and work more.

Software Solutions to Problems on Heat Transfer - Convection – Part II: Natural (or free) convection. - Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar
In this book on Natural (or, Free) convection, many problems of practical interest are solved using Mathcad, Engineering Equation Solver (EES) and EXCEL.
As done in other books in this series, viz. “Software Solutions to Problems on Heat Transfer”, much emphasis is given on the use of these software to conduct parametric analysis and present graphical representation of results.
In ‘Natural or free convection’, fluid movement is caused because of density differences in the fluid due to temperature differences, under the influence of gravity. Obviously, as compared to Forced convection, the heat transfer coefficient is lower in the case of Natural convection.
Still, Natural convection is one of the important modes of heat transfer used in practice since there are no moving parts and as a result, there is an increased reliability.
We shall solve problems of Natural convection involving following geometries: Vertical plates and cylinders, horizontal plates, cylinders and spheres, different types of enclosed spaces, rotating cylinders, disks and spheres. We will also consider important problems of Natural convection from finned surfaces, and cases of combined Natural and Forced convection.
