Library E-Books

We have signed up with three aggregators who resell networkable e-book editions of our titles to academic libraries. These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a “patron-driven demand” model.

These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus, but only from the following aggregators:

  • Ebook Library, a service of Ebooks Corporation Ltd. of Australia
  • ebrary, based in Palo Alto, a subsidiary of ProQuest
  • EBSCO / netLibrary, Alabama

as well as through the following wholesalers: The Yankee Book Peddler subsidiary of Baker & Taylor, Inc.

Fins have been used historically as reliable design features for thermal management, which continues to be an important problem in engineering today. This book develops heat transfer models for progressively complex fin designs. Mathematicians, engineers, and analysts may equally benefit from the content as it provides the reader with numerical and analytical tools to approach general and thermal management heat transfer problems. The main focus is on the COMSOL® Multiphysics Heat Transfer module; however, the fundamentals may be applied to other commercial packages such as ANSYS and Abaqus. The content can be utilized in a variety of engineering disciplines including mechanical, aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, and electrical, etc.


Features:

+Includes numerous example models that enable the reader to implement conceptual material in practical scenarios with broad industrial applications
+Uses COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.3 in combination with the Heat Transfer Module to set up and carry out the numerical analysis for the models presented in the book
+Presents mathematical methods related to the problems
+Includes a companion disc with models and custom apps created with COMSOL Application Builder (available by emailing info @ merclearning.com with proof of purchase if e-version)
