This book is based on a course in process heat transfer that I have taught for many years. The course has been taken by seniors and first-year graduate students who have completed an introductory course in engineering heat transfer. Although this background is assumed, nearly all students need some review before proceeding to more advanced material. For this reason, and also to make the book self-contained, the first three chapters provide a review of essential material normally covered in an introductory heat transfer course. Furthermore, the book is intended for use by practicing engineers as well as university students, and it has been written with the aim of facilitating self-study. Unlike some books in this field, no attempt is made herein to cover the entire panoply of heat trans fer equipment. Instead, the book focuses on the types of equipment most widely used in the chemical process industries, namely, shell-and-tube heat exchangers (including condensers and reboilers), air-cooled heat exchangers and double-pipe (hairpin) heat exchangers. Within the confines of a sin gle volume, this approach allows an in-depth treatment of the material that is most relevant from an industrial perspective, and provides students with the detailed knowledge needed for engineering practice. This approach is also consistent with the time available in a one-semester course.
