CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This text provides a teachable and readable approach to transport phenomena
(momentum, heat, and mass transport) by providing numerous examples and
applications, which are particularly important to metallurgical, ceramic, and
materials engineers. Because the authors feel that it is important for students
and practicing engineers to visualize the physical situations, they have
attempted to lead the reader through the development and solution of the
relevant differential equations by applying the familiar principles of
conservation to numerous situations and by including many worked examples in
The book is organized in a manner characteristic of other texts in transport
phenomena. Section I deals with the properties and mechanics of fluid motion;
Section II with thermal properties and heat transfer; and Section III with
diffusion and mass transfer. The authors depart from tradition by building on a
presumed understanding of the relationships between the structure and
properties of matter, particularly in the chapters devoted to the transport
properties (viscosity, thermal conductivity, and the diffusion coefficients).
In addition, generous portions of the text, numerous examples, and many
problems at the ends of the chapters apply transport phenomena to materials
