Explore the Radiative Exchange between Surfaces
Further expanding on the changes made to the fifth edition, Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer, 6th Edition continues to highlight the relevance of thermal radiative transfer and focus on concepts that develop the radiative transfer equation (RTE).
The book explains the fundamentals of radiative transfer, introduces the energy and radiative transfer equations, covers a variety of approaches used to gauge radiative heat exchange between different surfaces and structures, and provides solution techniques for solving the RTE.
What's New in the Sixth Edition
This revised version updates information on properties of surfaces and of absorbing/emitting/scattering materials, radiative transfer among surfaces, and radiative transfer in participating media. It also enhances the chapter on near-field effects, addresses new applications that include enhanced solar cell performance and self-regulating surfaces for thermal control, and updates references.
Comprised of 17 chapters, this text:
Discusses the fundamental RTE and its simplified forms for different medium propertiesPresents an intuitive relationship between the RTE formulations and the configuration factor analysesExplores the historical development and the radiative behavior of a blackbodyDefines the radiative properties of solid opaque surfacesProvides a detailed analysis and solution procedure for radiation exchange analysis Contains methods for determining the radiative flux divergence (the radiative source term in the energy equation)
Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer, 6th Edition explores methods for solving the RTE to determine the local spectral intensity, radiative flux, and flux gradient. This book enables you to assess and calculate the exchange of energy between objects that determine radiative transfer at different energy levels.

"This classical text, which has inspired generations of heat transfer students and researchers, has been updated and improved to make its content current with valuable online resources. The book covers very fundamental concepts of thermal radiation and radiative transport in participating and nonparticipating media, recent advances in inverse problems and near-field thermal radiation, and real-world applications including solar energy conversion."
-Zhuomin Zhang, Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA
"The most complete and wide cover of all aspects of radiative transfer. Clear explanations. Very good exercises."
-Vladimir Solovjov (Soloviev), Mechanical Engineering Department, BYU
"A new edition of this well-known textbook is always considered as a major event. Once again, this new edition of the `'Howell - Siegel - Menguc'' textbook on thermal radiation heat transfer will prove to be indispensable and a gold mine for students, engineers and researchers. ... new comers to thermal radiation and already experts will surely be very contended with this new edition."
-Rodolphe Vaillon, CNRS
"In general, the material strikes a good balance between providing the student a high level pedagogical explanation of complex phenomena, while retaining the details needed for implementing modern solution techniques. The textbook is an invaluable resource for teaching graduate students, and an excellent reference for the experienced researcher."
-Kyle Daun, University of Waterloo
"This text is a classic in radiation heat transfer. The new edition is updated with better arrangement in numerical solution methods of radiative transfer equation coupled with conduction and/or convection heat transfer and gas radiation properties. The organization is more logical and streamlined. The treatment maintains the comprehensive and fundamental nature of this text."
-Pei-feng Hsu, Florida Institute of Technology
"This book is a classic. I learned about radiation heat transfer from it years ago and with all the improvements made, it is still probably the best for the students of today to learn about radiation. The coverage is encyclopedic, yet every topic is explained clearly and in great detail. Chapters also include figures, data, examples and exercises that make the book useful as a text."
-Ernesto Gutierrez-Miravete, Professor of Practice
"... Professor M. Pinar Menguc has joined the team of authors, contributing with his extensive expertise in radiative heat transfer. Thus Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer is since authored by Howell, Siegel and Menguc. The new team with its reinforced skills assures a bright future for the book."
-Jean-Francois Sacadura, INSA Lyon - France
"... a successful combination of well-known formalisms and up-to-date solutions and data that the radiative transfer community offers through modern papers and conferences. Hence, the reader can find the classical descriptions of the most often used methods, plus the updated derivations which extend these methods. ... useful both for engineers and researchers, from practical applications to modern developments."
-Pascal Boulet, Professor at Universite de Lorraine, France
"... a really great resource for engineers and researchers on radiative heat transfer, for beginners but also for more advanced readers. It improves at each new edition and reflects the most recent developments on radiative transfer. It is undoubtedly the most comprehensive resource on the topic ..."
-Dr. Frederic Andre, CNRS
"... updates the coverage of this authoritative textbook and completes an excellent textbook for graduate classes on radiation heat transfer. ... an extremely helpful resource to researchers, engineers and scientists in the Field of thermal radiation."
-Costas Grigoropoulos, University of California, Berkeley
"... In a few words: this book altogether offers a complete and clear vision of thermal radiation and a detailed analysis of any specific process it involves. I find it enormously helpful for anyone approaching the domain, at any level."
