Refrigeration is extensively used in a variety of thermal engineering applications ranging from the cooling of electronic devices to food cooling processes. Its wide-ranging implications and applications mean that this industry plays a key role in national and international economies, and it continues to be an area of active research and development. Providing comprehensive coverage of refrigeration systems and applications, this is a valuable reference source for people in academia and industry who are interested in refrigeration systems and applications, and methods of analysing the heat transfer which occurs during these applications. In addition, it addresses real life technical and operational problems, enabling researchers and practitioners to gain an understanding of the fundamental principles and the practical applications of refrigeration technology. Recent developments in the field are included - many of which are taken from the author's own research activities in the area. Presents recent developments in the field such as exergy analysis, environmental impact, new models, correlations and charts Addresses real life technical and operational problems Provides coverage of heat transfer analysis techniques, with several illustrative examples and study problems Includes valuable food refrigeration data and comprehensive references Essential reading for research scientists, mechanical engineers and practitioners working in industrial refirgeration and cooling and food technology.
