Thermal Emission: An Overview is an entire textbook for a semester-long initial graduate course on radiant energy transfer. It bridges the gap between a basic introduction and comprehensive coverage of thermal emission, focusing on understanding radiative transfer as applied by engineers. Covering radiant transfer between surfaces, with an introduction to the effects of intervening media between surfaces, the book encompasses surface and medium property characteristics and solutions to the radiant transfer equation in straightforward geometries.

  • Customized and organized specifically to suit a one-semester graduate course in radiant heat transfer
  • Emphasis is placed on understanding radiative transfer as applied by engineers
  • Explores how emission is integrated into finite element analysis (FEA) codes

About the Author

John R. (Jack) Howell attained his academic degrees from Case Western Reserve University (then Case Institute of Technology), Cleveland, Ohio. He commenced his engineering career as a researcher at NASA Lewis (now Glenn) Research Center (1961–1968) and then held academic positions at the University of Houston (1978–1988) and the University of Texas at Austin, where he remained until retirement in 2012. He currently holds the position of Ernest Cockrell, Jr., Memorial Chair Emeritus. He pioneered the utilization of the Monte Carlo method for the analysis of radiant heat transfer in complex systems that contain absorbing, emitting, and scattering media. Jack has focused his research on computational methods for radiant transfer and mixed-mode issues for over 60 years. Recently, he has adapted inverse solution methods to mixed-mode issues and to radiation on the nanoscale. His accolades in heat transfer include the ASME/AIChE Max Jakob Medal (1998), ASME Heat Transfer Memorial Award (1991), AIAA Thermophysics Award (1990), the Poynting Award from JQSRT (2013), and the 2018 International Center for Heat and Mass Transfer Luikov Medal. He is an elected member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering (2005) and a foreign member of the Russian Academy of Sciences (1999). He is an Honorary Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME).

M. Pinar Mengüç completed his BSc and MS in mechanical engineering from the Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara, Turkey. He obtained his PhD in mechanical engineering from Purdue University in 1985. He joined the faculty at the University of Kentucky the same year and was elevated to the positions of associate and full professor in 1988 and 1993, respectively. In 2008, he was appointed an Engineering Alumni Association professor. Later in that year, he joined Özyegin University in Istanbul as the founding head of the Mechanical Engineering Department. In 2009, he established the Center for Energy, Environment, and Economy (CEEE), which he still oversees.

Kyle Daun earned his BSc from the University of Manitoba (1997), his MASc from the University of Waterloo (1999), and his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin (2003). From 2004 to 2007, he served at the National Research Council Canada as a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada postdoctoral fellow and later as a research officer. During his time at NRC, he researched radiant heat transfer in solid oxide fuel cells and contributed to the development and enhancement of laser-based combustion diagnostics. In 2007, he returned to the University of Waterloo, where he currently holds the position of Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering. Professor Daun’s research interests include inverse problems in radiant transfer, laser-based combustion diagnostics, nanoscale transport phenomena, and heat transfer in manufacturing. He has authored over 250 publications, including 90 peer-reviewed journal papers. Professor Daun is a fellow of the Humboldt Foundation, a DFG Mercator Fellow, and a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering. In 2010, he was the recipient of the JQSRT Ray Viskanta Young Scientist Award.
