Dr. Frank Kreith is Professor Emeritus of Engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder. From
1998 to 2001 he served as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers [ASME] International Legislative
Fellow for Energy and Environment at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) where he
provided assistance on energy, transportation, and environmental protection to legislators in all 50 state
governments. Prior to joining NCSL in 1988, Dr. Kreith was the Chief of Thermal Research at the Solar
Energy Research Institute (SERI), currently the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. During his tenure
at SERI, he participated in the Presidential Domestic Energy Review, served as an advisor to the Governor
of Colorado, and was the editor of the
ASME Journal of Solar Energy Engineering. In 1993, he received
the first General Achievement Award from SERI.
From 1951 to 1977, Dr. Kreith taught at the University of California, Lehigh University, and the
University of Colorado. He is the author of over 100 peer-reviewed articles and the author of textbooks
on heat transfer, solar energy, and transportation. He is the recipient of the Charles Greeley Abbot Award
from ASES and the Max Jakob Award from ASME-AIChE. In 1992, he received the Ralph Coats Roe
Medal from ASME for providing technical information to legislators about energy conservation and
environmental protection, and in 1997 the Washington Award for “unselfish and preeminent service in
advancing human progress.” In 1998, Dr. Kreith was awarded the ASME medal for research, publications,
and public service.
Dr. Kreith has served as a consultant and advisor all over the world. His assignments include consultancies to Vice Presidents Rockefeller and Gore, the U.S. Department of Energy, NATO, the U.S. Agency
for International Development, and the United Nations. He is a registered professional engineer, a Life
Fellow of ASME and a Fellow ASES and the American Association for the Advancement of Science
D. Yogi Goswami, Ph.D., P.E., is a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and Director of
the Solar Energy and Energy Conversion Laboratory at the University of Florida, Gainesville. Dr. Goswami
is internationally known for his research in fundamental and applied areas of renewable energy. He has
published as an author or editor 7 books, 12 book chapters, 4 conference proceedings, and more than
100 refereed technical papers. He also holds 5 U.S. patents and 1 worldwide patent. In 2001 he received
the University of Florida’s award of Research Foundation Professor.

Dr. Goswami is the Editor-in-Chief of
Advances in Solar Energy: An Annual Review of the Developments
in Solar Energy,
published by the American Solar Energy Society (ASES). He is also the Editor-in-Chief
of the
Solar Energy journal, published by the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) and a past associate
editor of the ASME
Journal of Solar Engineering. Dr. Goswami has chaired a number of task forces to
advise the U.S. Congress and the federal administration on energy policy. He has also made oral presentations on behalf of ISES to the United Nations charrette on world sustainable energy.

Dr. Goswami is a recognized leader in professional scientific and technical societies. He is the President
of ISES and a member of the Board of Governors of the ASME International. He has also served as Senior
Vice President of ASME-International (2000–2003), President of the International Association for Solar
Energy Education (IASEE, 2000–2002), and a member of the Board of Directors of ISES (2000–2002).
He has also served as a Vice President for Energy Resources Board of ASME-International (1989–1993),
Vice President of IASEE (1998–2000), and a member of the Board of Directors of ASES (1996–2000).
Dr. Goswami is a recipient of the John Yellott Award for Solar Energy from ASME and the Charles
Greely Abbott award of the ASES, and more than 20 other awards from engineering and scientific societies.
He is a registered professional engineer and a fellow of ASME International and ASES.

About the Author

D.Yogi Goswami Ph.D

Dr. Frank Kreith

The purpose of the second edition of the CRC Handbook of Mechanical Engineering is to continue providing practicing engineers in industry, government, and academia with up-to-date information on the most important topics of modern mechanical engineering. The book covers traditional topics such as thermodynamics, solid and fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, materials, controls, energy conversion, manufacturing and design, robotics, environmental engineering, economics and project management, patent law, and transportation. These topics were covered in the first edition, but they have been updated, new references have been added, and efforts have been made to provide information on
computer technology related to the topics at the end of each chapter.
But in the 10 years since the first edition of this handbook was published, changes have taken place
in engineering and technology and additional topics that were not treated in the first edition have come
to the fore. To bring the new edition up-to-date, chapters on topics such as nanotechnology, MEMS,
electronic packaging, global climate change, electric and hybrid vehicles, and bioengineering have been
added. Moreover, the editorial supervision for the second edition has been broadened by the addition
of Yogi Goswami as co-editor.
In a work of the size of the second edition of this handbook, it is unavoidable that certain errors or omissions may have occurred. Therefore, the editors appreciate the readers calling any of these shortcomings to their attention and every effort will be made to correct them. We also welcome continuous feedback from readers about topics that may have been omitted and should be considered for inclusion
in future editions of this work.
The editors would like to thank all the contributors, as well as the CRC staff, especially Helena Redshaw,
Jessica Vakili, Cindy Carelli, and Susan Fox, for their assistance in the preparation of this handbook.
