Cotta, R.M.: Integral Transform in Computational Heat and Fluid Flow

1993, CIC Press.

Integral Transforms in Computational Heat and Fluid Flow is a comprehensive volume that emphasizes the Generalized Integral Transform Technique (G.I.T.T.) and the developments that have made the technique a powerful computational tool of practical interest. The book begins with an overview of the generalized integral transform technique in contrast with classical analytical ideas. Various applications are presented throughout the book, including transient fin analysis with time-dependent surface dissipation, laminar forced convection inside externally finned tubes, metals oxidation at high temperatures, forced convection in liquid metals, and Navier-Stokes equations.
