MAE Professor Mazumder co-authors new textbook
The fourth edition of a book co-authored by Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Sandip Mazumder, will soon be published by Academic Press (Elsevier). The textbook, titled Radiative Heat Transfer, covers all aspects of thermal radiation including fundamental aspects of radiation, radiative properties of solids, liquids, and gases, and all methods of solving the radiative transfer equation in multidimensional media. The 926-page book is divided into 24 chapters. The major additions to the fourth edition are large sections on climate change and global warming and emphasis on practical applications, Mazumder said.
The book will be released both in print format (as a hardcover textbook) and in electronic format in August, and can be used in graduate level courses such as ME 6510 and ME 7510.
