Introduction to Heat Transfer by David P. DeWitt,Frank P. Incropera

The de facto standard text for heat transfer - noted for its readability, comprehensiveness and relevancy. Now revised to include clarified learning objectives, chapter summaries and many new problems. The fourth edition, like previous editions, continues to support four student learning objectives, desired attributes of any first course in heat transfer:Learn the meaning of the terminology and physical principles of heat transfer delineate pertinent transport phenomena for any process

I purchased this textbook as required course material for undergrad level Heat Transfer.

The book itself is well constructed, although the paper used in the pages is thin and tears easily (unfortunately, this is typical of modern textbooks).Ths binding seems strong enough.

The material in the text is organized, although not as clearly as it could be. Section titles and example problems are well labeled. Reading the book is not enough to learn the material within; material is often presented unclearly and may be poorly worded at times. Example problems help, but they often do not explain what is going on at all steps of the problem, or they skip steps completely.

Practice problems in the text are of acceptable difficulty, and the difficulty range is well balanced. However, no DIY answer key for odd or even problems means that this book is not good for individual use. Additionally, a few problems are missing information reqired to solve them, thus rendering them unusable for practice. Formulas in the book are usually easy to find or tabluated, although chapter summaries with equations are missing. Additionally, parenthesis are not included in many equatuions where they are absolutely neseccary.

Overall, the book is of average quality, with as many flaws as good features. However, many other texts are worse (including older versions of this book), and in reality this text is still usable for teaching purposes.
Good introductory text into heat transfer for undergraduate students. Lots of example problems in the text, good mixture of sample problems and the authors do a good job explaining the topics.
This is a good heat transfer textbook, the only thing to make sure to do is go to the companion website to get the answers to the homework to check if you are completing the problems right.
Not much to say but it is Heat Transfer. It doesn't have the solutions to odd problems, or any problems. This class was way harder than I ever imagined.
Great book, easy to understand...highly recommended, better than the new edition. The new edition is too confuse...
Great book and price was right
This is a great textbook for learning introductory concepts. the organization is well thought out and the language is easy to grasp. This is one of the best technical reads i have yet encountered at school.
