Since the last edition, fundamental changes have occurred, both nationally and globally, in how engineering is practiced, with questions raised about the future of the profession. How will the practice of engineering evolve over the next decade? Will tomorrow’s engineer be more valued if he is a specialist, or more handsomely rewarded if she has knowledge of greater breadth but less depth? How will engineering educators respond to changing market forces? Will the traditional boundaries that separate the engineering disciplines in the typical college or university remain in place?
We believe that, because technology provides the foundation for improving the standard of living of all humankind, the future of engineering is bright. But, in light of the tension between external demand for generalization and intellectual satisfaction of specialization, how will the discipline of heat transfer remain relevant? What will the value of this discipline be in the future? To what new problems will the knowledge of heat transfer be applied?
In preparing this edition, we attempted to identify emerging issues in technology and science in which heat transfer is central to the realization of new products in areas such as information technology, biotechnology and pharmacology, alternative energy, and nanotechnology. These new applications, along with traditional applications in energy generation, energy utilization, and manufacturing, suggest that the discipline of heat transfer is healthy. Furthermore, when applied to problems that transcend traditional boundaries, heat transfer will be a vital and enabling discipline of the future.
We have strived to remain true to the fundamental pedagogical approach of previous editions by retaining a rigorous and systematic methodology for problem solving, by including examples and problems that reveal the richness and beauty of the discipline, and by providing students with opportunities to meet the learning objectives.
