When a textbook that has been used by more than a million students all over the world reaches its seventh edition, it is natural to ask, “What has prompted the authors to revise the book?” The basic outline of how to teach the subject of heat transfer, which was pioneered by the senior author in its first edition, published 60 years ago, has now been universally accepted by virtually all subsequent authors of heat transfer texts. Thus, the organization of this book has essentially remained the same over the years, but newer experimental data and, in particular the advent of computer technology, have necessitated reorganization, additions, and integration of numerical and computer methods of solution into the text. The need for a new edition was prompted primarily by the following factors:
1) When a student begins to read a chapter in a textbook covering material that is new to him or her, it is useful to outline the kind of issues that will be important. We  , therefore, introduced at the beginning of each chapter a summary of the key issues to be covered so that the student can   those issues when they come up in the chapter. We hope that this pedagogic technique will help the students in their learning of an intricate topic such as heat transfer. 2) An important aspect of learning engineering science is to connect with practical applications, and the appro priate modeling of associated systems or devices. Newer applications, illustrative modeling examples, and more current state-of-the art predictive correlations have, therefore, been added in several chapters in this edition. 3) The sixth edition used MathCAD as the computer method for solving real engineering problems. During the ten years since the sixth edition was published, the teaching and utilization of MathCAD has been supplanted by the use of MATLAB. Therefore, the MathCAD approach has been replaced by MATLAB in the chapter on numerical analysis as well as for the illustrative problems in the real world applications of heat transfer in other chapters. 4) Again, from a pedagogic perspective of assessing student learning.
