The transfer of heat is an integral part of many industrial processes. Moreover, heat transfer affects our everyday lives – from an oven heating our dinner to the wind cooling us on a hot summer day. Thus, it is important that the engineer understands how to apply the basic principles of heat transfer to solve real-world problems.
