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.

This book guides the reader through the process of model creation for heat transfer analysis with the finite element method. The book describes thermal imaging experiments that demonstrate how such models can be validated. It presents application examples, such as heating water in a kettle, to basement insulation, a heated seat, molten rock, pipe flow, and an innovative extended surface. A companion disc provides the files so models can be run (using COMSOL or other software) in order to observe real-world behavior of the applications. Historical background information is provided to show the progression of heat transfer science and mathematical modeling from the earliest developments to the most recent advances in technology.

Features:

  • Includes example models that enable the reader to implement conceptual material in practical scenarios with broad industrial applications
  • Includes companion files with models and geometry files created with COMSOL Multiphysics® or imported from a third-party CAD tool.
