"Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer" is an introductory text elaborating the interface between Heat Transfer and subjects like Thermodynamics or Fluid Mechanics presenting the scientific basis of the equations and their physical explanations in a lucid way. The basic theories such as the Boundary Layer Theory and theories related to bubble growth during phase change have been explained in detail. In two-phase heat transfer, the deviations from standard theories such as the Nusselt's theory of condensation have been discussed. In the chapter on heat exchangers detailed classification, selection, analysis and design procedures have been enumerated while two chapters on numerical simulation have also been included.
