    Heat Transfer: Lessons with Examples Solved by Matlab instructs students in heat transfer, and cultivates independent and logical thinking ability. The book focuses on fundamental concepts in heat transfer and can be used in courses in Heat Transfer, Heat and Mass Transfer, and Transport Processes. It uses numerical examples and equation solving to clarify complex, abstract concepts such as Kirchhoff’s Law in Radiation.

    Several features characterize this textbook:
    • It includes real-world examples encountered in daily life;
    • Examples are mostly solved in simple Matlab codes, readily for students to run numerical experiments by cutting and pasting Matlab codes into their PCs;
    • In parallel to Matlab codes, some examples are solved at only a few nodes, allowing students to understand the physics qualitatively without running Matlab codes;
    • It places emphasis on "why" for engineers, not just "how" for technicians.

    Heat Transfer is an ideal text for students of mechanical, chemical, and aerospace engineering. It can also be used in programs for civil and electrical engineering, and physics. Rather than simply training students to be technicians, Heat Transfer uses clear examples, structured exercises and application activities that train students to be engineers. The book encourages independent and logical thinking, and gives students the skills needed to master complex, technical subject matter.

    Tien-Mo Shih received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and did his post-doctoral work at Harvard University. From 1978 to 2011 he was an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. Since July of 2012, he has been a professor in the Department of Physics, Xiamen University, China. His book, Numerical Heat Transfer, was translated into Russian and Chinese, and subsequently published by both the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He has published numerous research papers, and has been invited regularly to write survey papers for Numerical Heat Transfer Journal since the 1980s.

    Adopting instructors will receive supplemental exercise problems, as well as access to a companion website where instructors and students can participate in discussion forums amongst themselves and with the author.
    This book is unique in that it introduces coarse grid systems so that students can set up only a few algebraic equations, solve them, and understand the heat transfer physics. I really like the approach.
