This book attempts to bridge the gap between numerical methods and procedures, on the one hand, and the physical characteristics of thermal transport, on the other. The subject is developed by relating various available computational techniques to the basic heat transfer processes, and the text emphasizes the importance of the physical aspects of the problem in the selection of the most appropriate method, in the imposition of the boundary conditions, and in the verification of the numerical results. The intricacies of computational heat transfer are brought out by considering different types of basic and applied problems and the corresponding effect on the solution procedure.
