Conduction of Heat in Solids - A Classic Text by Carslaw and Jaeger in PDF Format
Materials engineers easily recognize that the conduction of heat within solids is fundamental to understanding and controlling many processes. We could cite numerous examples to emphasize the importance of this topic. Some important applications that fall in this category include estimating heat losses from process equipment, quenching, or cooling operations where the cooling rate of a part actually controls its microstructure and hence its application, and solidification.
