Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer

Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer 

Theodore L. Bergman

Preference :

his Forward to Preface of the sixth edition of this work, Frank Incropera shared with read- ers the timeline for the multi-edition transition of authorship from Incropera and DeWitt to Bergman and Lavine. Throughout the 15 years of our involvement with the text, we have been inspired by, and mindful of, Frank’s insistence that the quality of the expository material be of paramount importance. We have also attempted to demonstrate the relevance of heat transfer by providing a multitude of examples, ranging from traditional and non-traditional energy generation to potential climate change, where heat transfer plays a vital role. Since our initial participation in the sixth edition, unexpected developments have evolved in engineering education. For example, the escalating cost of higher education is now debated at all levels of political leadership. As classroom instructors and parents of college students, this concern is not lost on us. In response, we have taken steps to hold the cost of the text in check by reducing its page count and forgoing production of a new edition of the companion text, Introduction to Heat Transfer.
