This classic book has set the standard in the field for more than three decades, providing a consistent, clearly written introduction to transfer processes. Continuing that tradition, the new fifth edition presents a unified treatment of momentum transfer (fluid mechanics), heat transfer and mass transfer. The treatment of the three areas of transport phenomena is done sequentially. The subjects of momentum, heat, and mass transfer are introduced, in that order, and appropriate analysis tools are developed.
