Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer has been the gold standard of heat transfer pedagogy for many decades with a commitment to continuous improvement by four authors with more than 150 years of combined experience in heat transfer education, research, and practice. Applying the rigorous and systematic problem-solving methodology pioneered by this program, an abundance of examples and problems reveal the richness and beauty of the discipline. This first ever edition in WileyPLUS makes heat and mass transfer more approachable by giving additional emphasis to fundamental concepts while highlighting the relevance of two of today’s most critical issues—energy and the environment—all in an online teaching and learning platform proven to support success.

The next generation of WileyPLUS for Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer gives instructors the freedom and flexibility to tailor content and easily manage their course in order to keep students engaged and on track.
