This book presents the basic principles and applications of radiative heat transfer used in energy, space, and geo-environmental engineering, and can serve as a reference book for engineers and scientists in researchand development. A PC disk containing software for numerical analyses by the Monte Carlo method is included to provide hands-on practice in analyzing actual radiative heat transfer problems.
Advances in Heat Transferis designed to fill the information gap between regularly scheduled journals and university level textbooks by providing in-depth review articles over a broader scope than journals or texts usually allow.
* Offers solution methods for integro-differential formulation to help avoid difficulties
* Includes a computer disk for numerical analyses by PC
* Discusses energy absorption by gas and scattering effects by particles
* Treats non-gray radiative gases
* Provides example problems for direct applications in energy, space, and geo-environmental engineering
