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
AlShemmeri
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

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 Crossflow 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 3zone enclosures,
Radiation shields etc. in Mathcad, EES and EXCELVBA. 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 2zone
and 3zone 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
EXCEL2007. 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 reuse 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.
