Every chapter of Radiative Heat Transfer offers uncluttered nomenclature, numerous worked examples, and a large number of problems - many based on "real world" situations, making it ideal for classroom use as well as for self-study. The book's 22 chapters cover the four major areas in the field: surface properties; surface transport; properties of participating media; and transfer through participating media.

The most comprehensive and detailed treatment of thermal radiation heat transfer available for graduate students, as well as senior undergraduate students, practicing engineers and physicists is enhanced by an excellent writing style with nice historical highlights and a clear and consistent notation throughout. Modest presents radiative heat transfer and its interactions with other modes of heat transfer in a coherent and integrated manner emphasizing the fundamentals. Numerous worked examples, a large number of problems, many based on real world situations, and an up-to-date bibliography make the book especially suitable for independent study.Most complete text in the field of radiative heat transferMany worked examples and end-of-chapter problemsLarge number of computer codes (in Fortran and C++), ranging from basic problem solving aids to sophisticated research toolsCovers experimental methods

For anyone really interested in radiative heat transfer, especially at high temperatures, this book covers it all and the third edition has been brought fully up to date on advances in the field. I've found everything I wanted to know about gas and solids heat transfer in this text, including integrated conduction and convection heat transfer. I've found that the simple equation development from first principals on upward to advanced modeling concepts fits my study style exactly, neither too much nor too little is covered, and all in a logical progression. The topic development is so clear and comprehensive that this is the only resource that I'll use.

Has been a very useful textbook in my Radiative Heat Transfer Course! It's nice to have a hard copy to flip through instead of an electronic version.

This is very informative. The book is quite advanced, yet it describes radiation in a simplistic manner which builds on itself. I bought this book to study radiation in participating media (chapters 10, 21, and 22 specifically) and I am very happy with the purchase. I would highly recommend the book to anyone looking for an advanced book on radiative heat transfer.

I come from a Computer Graphics background and I wish I had this book years ago. I highly recommend it for the level of discussion and the mathematics presented. I particularly enjoyed the fact that it explained the Fresnel equations for non-absorbing materials (AKA metals). I was able to make a pretty decent simulation of Gold with the information in this book. As a whole, it has a ton of material in it.

I got this book last year and before buying it, I checked out the older version from my graduate school's library. It is very advanced textbook, covering a lot of topics and theories. The author of this book, Dr. Modest was my undergrad Heat and Mass Transfer professor at UC Merced. I really enjoyed his class. Also, last two chapters of Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer undergrad text book talks about the radiative heat transfer and this book talks deeply about this concept.

The book discusses radiation exchange topics, in some detail.
It does not discuss the solution of practical radiation heat transfer problems.

Examples in the book emphasize reflection, absorption, emission, and scattering,
in the various forms that they might occur (as in gases, liquids, and from surfaces).
The discussion includes F-factors, and various methods for deriving them.
The majority of examples involve parallel planes, or the use of "enclosures,"
typically with a "participating medium" in between the surfaces.

The book shows techniques for deriving expressions for gray behavior and for
various forms of non-gray behavior, including general spectral behavior.
The techniques are spread throughout the book, in different chapters.
The reader must pay very close attention to the "enclosure" context applicable
in each specific chapter.

Temperature change in a system, due to the effect of energy transfer, and
the thee-dimensional temperature field resulting from such energy transfer,
is not the main topic in this book. The classic conservation of energy equation
involving system change via thermal radiation, convection, and conduction
is mentioned a few times [26,282,680]. For practical applications, the author
refers the reader to "applications ... reported in the literature" [680].
A few examples show how to derive expressions involving heat flux or
heat flow rate explicitly [such as 164,166,171,177,213,218-219,282].

Many example cases are distinctive for the detail in mathematical exposition,
accompanied by numerous supporting references.
However, the utility sometimes seems to be disconnected from the real world.
For instance, a large number of examples involve parallel planes, or "black" surfaces.
For instance, the non-dimensionalized graphs of convective heat transfer coefficient,
and flow over the flat plate [698,699], while properly constructed mathematically,
are not representative of professional heat transfer practice in general.
For instance, the classic Hollands V-corrugated surface is discussed [107] for reflective
surfaces, followed by a broad-based discussion for "apparent" absorptance and emittance [215]
on the V-corrugated surface [213]. In the example [214], the author discusses apparent emissivity
due to the geometry, which is indeed correct, but surprisingly, he does not discuss the
seminal tradeoff between the "flat black" surface and the "selective surface," as it
occurs in the V-corrugated case, in particular.

The author does not seem to understand why heat transfer engineers must, in practice,
employ certain analytical methods in a real job environment [276 and 277].

The terms "of course" and "obviously" occur too many times in the book.

I thought the content was very helpful to my research. I would recommend this material for any graduate student in Mechanical Engineering but the actual condition of the book (as new as it may look) is actually quite terrible. This product might actually be a counterfeit. The paper material reminds me of a bible. The images are smudged. The finer print (it doesn't even have to be fine print) can be hard to read. It looks like it was bounded by a two year old. The book sits as if its paper has not had the time to settle and lie flat. Compare it to any other textbook you have and you will immediately see where the faults lie. I would be alright with this purchase if it was $30 but it was just about $100 so maybe going for the 3rd edition is a better option if money allows it.
Perfect condition as far as I can tell
