Fundamentals of Momentum, Heat and Mass Transfer

Customer Reviews:

Maybe a classic, but 5th ed. full of TYPOs!

By K. Lawrence - September 29, 2008

I have carefully studied this text over a two-semester series in transport phenomena and I am amazed at the severity of typographical errors. For example, eqn 27-15 on pg 502 is missing a crucial 1/n term in the infinite sum. Equation 30-20 on pg 582 is completely misplaced-- it should be on the next page. Virtually every page you turn to has at least one typo, sometimes up to ten. It is criminal to sell a book for upwards of $150 without extensive proofreading. Next time hire an editor (I'm available for a reasonable pay).

Nice mass transfer portion

By Yue Meng Yi - April 3, 2008

I didn't really like the portions on heat and momentum transfer, because I think there are other more specialised books dealing with those areas, and the applications problems weren't that great.

The mass transfer portion was my favourite. I really appreciated the straightforward, fun and exiciting applications the authors incorporated into the text. It is a very good introduction to mass transfer. Hand-waving aside, I guess there has to be a balance somewhere, so for most people, it is good enough, as it is for me.

Overall 4-star grading, but only because of the good mass transfer portion.

...I paid for this?

By The Doctor - May 7, 2013

This book is so unbelievably worthless. As a college student, I understand that I'm going to be pushed beyond my bounds, but this book is essentially a collection of mathematical proofs with no notes on some of the "simpler" computations. Even after taking all the offered calculus courses at my University this book is still a nightmare to try and look something up in. Formulas are never presented in a table, as I said large computation steps are stepped over, and the entire tone/structure implies that the writers assume that you already have an absolute mastery of multivariable calculus. Tone it down, I need "canned" formulas and step by step calculations; we're undergrads, not doctoral candidates.
