Oklahoma State professor publishes new edition of book

Thursday, August 1, 2019

Dr. Afshin Ghajar, Regents and John Brammer Endowed Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

Dr. Afshin Ghajar published the sixth edition of his heat transfer book, “Heat and Mass Transfer – Fundamentals & Applications,” in April this year.

The book’s previous editions have been used worldwide, having been translated into seven different languages. The book serves as more than a textbook, but also a tool to guide students toward a firm grasp on the basic principles and equations of heat and mass transfer, while encouraging creative thinking and development of a greater understanding of the subject matter.

One of the many new features present in the new edition is the focus on the concepts of “Prevention through Design” and “Engineering Codes and Standards.” These topics help with the knowledge of heat and mass transfer by emphasizing safety in designs and adherence to relevant codes and standards. This will allow engineers to better analyze, design and build components and systems to function within their design conditions.
