Fundamentals of Momentum, Heat, and Mass Transfer – James R. Welty – 5th Edition


Fundamentals of Momentum, Heat, and Mass Transfer, now in its fifth edition, continues to provide a unified treatment of momentum transfer (fluid mechanics), heat transfer, and mass transfer. This new edition has been updated to include more coverage of modern topics such as biomedical/biological applications as well as an added separations topic on membranes. Additionally, the fifth edition will focus on an explicit problem-solving methodology that is thoroughly and consistently implemented throughout the text.

Designed for undergraduates taking transport phenomena or transfer and rate process courses.
