This extensively revised 4th edition provides an up-to-date, comprehensive single source of information about the important subjects in engineering radiative heat transfer. It presents the subject in a progressive manner that is excellent for classroom use or self-study, and also provides an annotated reference to literature and research in the field. The foundations and methods for treating radiative heat transfer are developed in detail, and the methods are demonstrated and clarified by solving example problems. The examples will be especially helpful for self-study. The treatment of spectral band properties of gases has been made current and the methods are described in detail and illustrated with examples. The combination of radiation with conduction and/or convection has been given more emphasis and has been merged with results for radiation alone that serve as a limiting case; this increases the practicality for energy transfer in translucent solids and fluids. A comprehensive catalogue of configuration factors on the CD that is included with the book provides over 290 factors in algebraic or graphical form.
Homework problems with answers are given in each chapter and a detailed and carefully worked solutions manual is available for instructors.
