Books: general information & reading for beginners
Aide-Mémoire du thermicienby Françoise MassardElsevier (1997)ISBN 2-906077-95-XFrench
This book is intended to help engineers to solve thermal problems by giving general information on heat transfer.
Handbook of Heat Transferby W M Rohsenow, J P Hartnett, Young I ChoMcGraw-Hill (1998)ISBN 0070535558English
Reference on heat transfer issues and problem-solving. Has information on all heat transfer principles with special coverage of microscale heat transfer, heat transfer in materials processing, new heat transfer augmentation techniques, thermophysical properties of new refrigerants and innovative heat exchanger methods.
Heat Conduction, 3rd ed.
Intended for graduate students and practicing engineers in mechanical engineering and thermal sciences.
Initiation aux transferts thermiques
An introduction to heat transfer (conduction, convection and radiation) for science undergraduates, new researchers in the field and scientists for whom this is not a specialist subject.
Landolt-Börnstein, Numerical Data and Functional Relationships in Science and Technology. GroupIII, Vol 15, Sub-volume c
Thermal conductivity of pure metals and alloys.The collection of tables and data is part of a programme of Landolt-Börnstein aiming at a critical tabulation of reliable data relevant to metal physics. This collection fills a long-felt need for both experimentalists and theoreticians including non-specialists who find the primary literature and non-critical data collection rather overwhelming.
