  • Uses a dynamic approach to problem-solving, including linear and non-linear systems
  • Stresses the generalized integral transforms technique
  • Clearly demonstrates the advantages of the hybrid method over purely numerical techniques
  • Emphasizes presentation of results, detailing the required derivations, and describing the computer implementation of the method in each class of problems
  • Summary

    Integral Transforms in Computational Heat and Fluid Flow is a comprehensive volume that emphasizes the generalized integral transform technique (G.I.T.T.) and the developments that have made the technique a powerful computational tool of practical interest. The book progressively demonstrates the approach through increasingly difficult extensions and test problems. It begins with an overview of the generalized integral transform technique in contrast with classical analytical ideas.
    Various applications are presented throughout the book, including transient fin analysis with time-dependent surface dissipation, laminar forced convection inside externally finned tubes, metals oxidation at high temperatures, forced convection in liquid metals, and Navier-Stokes equations.
