## Book description

Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer is written as a text book for senior undergraduates in engineering colleges of Indian universities, in the departments of Mechanical, Automobile, Production, Chemical, Nuclear and Aerospace Engineering. The book should also be useful as a reference book for practising engineers for whom thermal calculations and understanding of heat transfer are necessary, for example, in the areas of Thermal Engineering, Metallurgy, Refrigeration and Airconditioning, Insulation etc.
