PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION
In the second edition, the book has been thoroughly revised and enlarged. The chapter on steady state one-dimensional heat conduction has been modified to include problems on two-dimensional heat conduction. Finite heat difference method of solving such problems has been covered. Modification has also been included in the text as per the suggestions obtained from various sources. Additional typical problems based on the examination papers of various technical universities have been included with solutions for easy understanding by the students. I thank all the faculty members of Mechanical Department of GNIT, Greater Noida for their assistance in the completion of this second edition of the book. I once again request students and teachers to send constructive suggestions and criticism by e-mailing channi-sawhney hotmail.com G. S. Sawhney

PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION
Heat and Mass Transfer is considered a basic and essential subject for engineering students of Mechanical and Chemical disciplines. The concepts of heat and mass transfer have a variety of applications in industry. Realizing the importance of the subject, all technical universities have introduced this subject in their syllabi. This subject is taught to undergraduate students only for one semester which is generally fifth semester. Efforts have been made to cover the syllabi of all technical universities. Based on my teaching experience, I have tried to explain principles and concepts of heat and mass transfer in simple and clear terms. The endeavour is to present the subject matter in the most comprehensive and usable form. The derivations of fundamental relations have been kept as simple as possible. Diagrams have been used abundantly to elucidate the difficult concepts which are difficult to explain otherwise. The theory part is further supported with illustrations and suitable examples. This book has easy to read style as it is written in question-answer form and it is going to benefit the readers immensely. Above all, I wish to record my sincere thanks to my wife, Jasbeer Kaur for patience shown throughout the preparation of this book. I am grateful to Dr. S. Prasad for everlasting support always extended to me. I would appreciate constructive suggestions and objective criticism from students and teachers alike with a view to enhance further usefulness of this book.
