Deshmukh, a retired mechanical engineering professor and consultant, presents design information for both traditional and modern heating processes and auxiliary techniques, focusing on small and medium-sized applications. The book opens with a review of fundamental topics in steady state and transient heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and aerodynamics. A discussion of fuels, their combustion, and combustion devices follows, along with material on waste incineration. The author then examines techniques related to heating, such as vacuum technology, pyrometry, and heat exchangers, as well as the advantages and disadvantage of different types of materials. Examples and solved problems are included. The series was originated by Dekker.
