Heat Transfer

Design, Experimentation and Applications

Edited by Miguel Araiz

University of Navarre

Thermal energy is present in all aspects of our lives, including when cooking, driving, or turning on the heat or air conditioning. Sometimes this thermal management is not evident, but it is essential for our comfort and lifestyle. In addition, heat transfer is vital in many industrial processes. Thermal energy analysis is a complex task that usually requires different approaches. With five sections, this book provides information on heat transfer problems and using experimental techniques and computational models to analyse them.
