Fundamentals of Momentum, Heat and Mass Transfer 7th Asia Edition
The field’s essential standard for more than three decades, Fundamentals of Momentum, Heat and Mass Transfer offers a systematic introduction to transport phenomena and rate processes. Thorough coverage of central principles helps students build a foundational knowledge base while developing vital analysis and problem solving skills. Momentum, heat, and mass transfer are introduced sequentially for clarity of concept and logical organization of processes, while examples of modern applications illustrate real-world practices and strengthen student comprehension. Designed to keep the focus on concept over content, this text uses accessible language and efficient pedagogy to streamline student mastery and facilitate further exploration.
Abundant examples, practice problems, and illustrations reinforce basic principles, while extensive tables simplify comparisons of the various states of matter. Detailed coverage of topics including dimensional analysis, viscous flow, conduction, convection, and molecular diffusion provide broadly-relevant guidance for undergraduates at the sophomore or junior level, with special significance to students of chemical, mechanical, environmental, and biochemical engineering.

Building prototypes and models is an essential component of any design activity. Modern product development is a multi-disciplinary effort that relies on prototyping in order to explore new ideas and test them sufficiently before they become actual products. “Prototyping and Modelmaking for Product Designers” illustrates how prototypes are used to help designers understand problems better, explore more imaginative solutions, investigate human interaction more fully and test functionality so as to de-risk the design process. Following an introduction on the purpose of prototyping, specific materials, tools and techniques are examined in detail, with step-by-step tutorials and industry examples of real and successful products illustrating how prototypes are used to help solve design problems. Workflow is also discussed, using a mixture of hands on and digital tools. A comprehensive modern prototyping approach is crucial to making informed design decisions, and forms a strategic part of a successful designer’s toolkit.

Enrico Fermi (1901 – 1954) was an Italian-American physicist particularly known for his work on the development of the first nuclear reactor and for his contributions to the development of quantum theory, nuclear and particle physics, and statistical mechanics. He was awarded the 1938 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on induced radioactivity. Fermi is widely regarded as one of the leading scientists of the 20th century, highly accomplished in both theory and experiment. Along with J. Robert Oppenheimer, he is frequently referred to as “the father of the atomic bomb.” His lecture notes, especially those for quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, and thermodynamics, were transcribed into books which are still in print, including THERMODYNAMICS, which remains his most important publication. With his characteristic clarity, in this classic on Thermodynamics, Fermi explains the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, entropy, thermodynamic potentials, and much more.
Transportation is arguably the most critical component of global supply chains. And one of the most complex. Delivering comprehensive coverage of current domestic and global transportation trends, “Management Transportation, 7e, International Edition” equips your students with a solid understanding of this dynamic field. More student friendly than ever, the seventh edition helps readers understand both the fundamental role and importance of transportation in companies and in society, as well as the complex environment in which transportation service is provided today. Taking a managerial approach, the authors give students the tools to successfully adapt to this fast-paced and rapidly changing industry. The text is organized into three parts. Part I provides a framework and foundation for the role of transportation from a micro and macro perspective in supply chains. Discussions include both the theoretical and managerial dimensions of transportation in supply chains, including regulation and public policy. Part II focuses on the providers of transportation, offering an industry overview, operating and service characteristics, cost structure, and current challenges and issues. Part III focuses on a variety of critical transportation management issues, providing insightful discussions of the strategic activities and challenges involved in the movement of goods through the supply chain.
