The proposed will be a revision of a classic text on heat conduction which is considered to have the most comprehensive coverage with emphasis on the mathematics and underlying physics. The current text has considerable depth and analytical rigor but after the initial introduction and set-up of the given solution scheme, the treatment is usually reduced to a "generic" solution approach. Comments about the physics of the solution (e.g. transient vs. steady-state components and conservation of energy) are not always given. The second half of the current edition is largely dedicated to approximate and numerical schemes. While these are important topics, rigorous coverage is simply not practical in a single conduction course. At the same time an increasingly important topic in thermal science is coverage of micro- and nano-scale heat transfer. The proposed new edition will then lower the emphasis on numerical methods while increasing coverage of key new topics of micro- and nano-scale heat transfer. New examples, problems, and cases will be added and a solutions manual will be available.

Author Biography

David W. Hahn is the Knox T. Millsaps Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Florida, Gainesville. His areas of specialization include both thermal sciences and biomedical engineering, including the development and application of laser-based diagnostic techniques and general laser-material interactions.

The late M. Necati Özişik retired as Professor Emeritus of North Carolina State University's Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, where he spent most of his academic career. Professor Özişik dedicated his life to education and research in heat transfer. His outstanding contributions earned him several awards, including the Outstanding Engineering Educator Award from the American Society for Engineering Education in 1992.
