Abstract: In this second and enhanced edition of the book, we provide the readers with a detailed step-by-stepapplication of the finite element method to heat and mass transfer problems. In addition tothe fundamentals of the finite element method and heat and mass transfer, we have attemptedto take the readers through some advanced topics of heat and mass transfer. The first editionof the book covered only the application of the finite element method to heat conduction andflow aided laminar heat convection. The second edition of the book has been enhanced furtherwith turbulent flow and heat transfer, and mass transfer, in addition to advanced topics suchas fuel cells.We believe that the second edition provides a comprehensive text for students,engineers and scientists who would like to pursue a finite element based heat transfer analysis.This textbook is suitable for beginners, senior undergraduate students, postgraduate students,engineers and early career researchers.
