Fundementals of Heat and Mass Transfer Revised 3rd Edition by C.P. Kotandaraman



Professor Obert has observed in his famous treatise on Thermodynamics that concepts are
better understood by their repeated applications to real life situations. A firm conviction of
this principle has prompted the author to arrange the text material in each chapter in the
following order.
In the first section after enunciating the basic concepts and laws mathematical models
are developed leading to rate equations for heat transfer and determination of temperature
field, simple and direct numerical examples are included to illustrate the basic laws. More
stress is on the model development as compared to numerical problems.

Optimisation of the shape of the fin of specified volume for maximum
heat flow is discussed. Circumferential fins and variable area fins are analysed. The use of
numerical method is illustrated. Error in measurement of temperature using thermometer is
well discussed. The possibility of measurement of thermal conductivity and convective heat
transfer coefficient using fins is illustrated.
Two dimensional steady state conduction is discussed in the fifth chapter. Exact analysis
is first developed for two types of boundary conditions. The use of numerical method is illustrated
by developing nodal equations. The concept and use of conduction shape factor is illustrated
for some practical situations.
One dimensional transient (unsteady) heat conduction is discussed in Chapter 6. Three
types of models arise in this case namely lumped heat capacity system, semi-infinite solid and
infinite solid. Lumped heat capacity model for which there are a number of industrial
applications is analysed in great detail and problems of practical interest are shown solved.
The condition under which semi-infinite solid model is applicable as compared to infinite solid
model is clearly explained. Three types of boundary conditions are analysed. Infinite solid
model for three geometric shapes is analysed next. The complexity of the analytical solution is
indicated. Solution using charts is illustrated in great detail. Real solids are of limited
dimensions and these models cannot be applied directly in these cases. In these cases product
solution is applicable. A number of problems of practical interest for these types of solids are
worked out in this section. In both cases a number of problems are solved using numerical
methods. Periodic heat flow problems are also discussed.
Concepts and mechanism of convection are discussed in the seventh chapter. After
discussing the boundary layer theory continuity, momentum and energy equations are derived.
Next the different methods of solving these equations are discussed. In addition to the exact
analysis approximate integral method, analogy method and dimensional analysis are also
discussed and their applicability is indicated. General correlations for convective heat transfer
coefficient in terms of dimensionless numbers are arrived at in this chapter.
In Chapter 8, in addition to the correlations derived in the previous chapter, empirical
correlations arrived at from experimental results are listed and applied to flow over surfaces
like flat plate, cylinder, sphere and banks of tubes. Both laminar and turbulent flows situation
are discussed.
Flow through ducts is discussed in Chapter 9. Empirical correlations for various situations
are listed. Flow developing region, fully developed flow conditions, constant wall temperature
and constant wall heat flux are some of the conditions analysed. Flow through non-circular
pipes and annular flow are also discussed in this chapter.
Natural convection is dealt with in Chapter 10. Various geometries including enclosed
space are discussed. The choice of the appropriate correlation is illustrated through a number
of problems. Combined natural and forced convection is also discussed.
Chapter 11 deals with phase change processes. Boiling, condensation, freezing and
melting are discussed. Basic equations are derived in the case of freezing and melting and
condensation. The applicable correlations in boiling are listed and their applicability is
illustrated through numerical examples.
Chapter 12 deals with heat exchangers, both recuperative and regenerative types. The
LMTD and NTU-effectiveness methods are discussed in detail and the applicability of these
methods is illustrated. Various types of heat exchangers are compared for optimising the size.
Thermal radiation is dealt with in Chapter 13. The convenience of the use of electrical
analogy for heat exchange among radiating surfaces is discussed in detail and is applied in
almost all the solved problems. Gas radiation and multi-body enclosures are also discussed.
Chapter 14 deals with basic ideas of mass transfer in both diffusion and convection
modes. A large number of problems with different fluid combinations are worked out in this
