I’m an engineering professional who recently used this book for the study of the Design of Thermal Systems at Rochester Institute of Technology. The first two chapters are on engineering design and selecting workable designs. A 3rd chapter introduces engineering economics to forecast system costs in terms of future costs or translate future costs to present costs.
The 4th chapter introduces equation fitting to model the behavior of subsystem components based on, say data from a catalog. This is followed by a chapter on system modeling, i. Chapter 6 teaches how to simulate the model which helps in sensitivity studies before or after optimization.
Mathematical optimization methods such as Lagrange Multipliers, Search Methods and Linear Programming among others are presented in chapters For project work, possibly the best part of the book is contained in the Appendix. It lists thought provoking system design challenges that involve the full breadth and scope of the tools presented in the book. The 3rd edition of this book can be used within the context of a senior undergraduate or first year graduate curriculum.
The reason I write that is because Stoecker makes only passing attempts to elaborate elementary concepts in thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics. So be warned since right off the bat, the 2nd chapter presents problems in the analysis of systems for optimization, for example a piping system for water conveyance or the design requirement to heat a swimming pool given various constraints.
If it has been a while since you took thermo or heat transfer, you’re well advised to use supplemental texts to fill the knowledge gap. The ideal student of this text is one who is well prepared to face these challenging problems and has some degree of experience with them in actual working life. The merit of the book is in its well thought out problems that have been developed from Stoecker’s teaching as well as research into real world design problems.
There is little possibility that a solutions manual for the text can be obtained so it is advised that the student develop his solutions with his own research and thinking.
Socratic discussions with the lecturer to get further insights can always help. Which brings me to the fact that the ideal lecturer is one who has also worked in engineering plants with a number of these systems in actual practice – compressors, pumps, turbines, piping systems, evaporators, condensors etc. The fundamentals of the math behind the optimization and system simulation byy not have changed.
But I’ve rated 4 stars for this book only because its design methodologies can seem a little dated for our times especially. Stocker hasn’t really edited the book to present new concepts on concurrent engineering, design for environment, design for manufacturability, quality function deployment, decision trees etc.
The meat of the book is in its analysis and optimization as the title says but I still think that the new era engineer will be served better if contemporary upstream methodologies used to generate concepts, arrive at workable solutions etc can be presented in the book.
Which desiign why Adrian Bejan’s “Thermal Design and Optimization” is also another excellent text on this subject. Stay tuned for my review of that book!! I was taught from edition one of this book back in the early 70’s. Once the second edition came out I jumped at it and was not disappointed. The third edition came out in and I got it at once.
Now I hope Professor Stoecker is still working on a fourth edition so that I can also get it. This is the best book I have ever seen to help someone understand the in’s and out’s of design; any design, from system concept to system completion. I can’t say enough about this book. The optimization subjects are as simple to understand as came be made with excellent explanations. Subjects covered are economics, equation fitting, modeling systems, system simulations, lagrange multiplers, search methods, dynamic programming, geometric programming, modeling of thermal properties, steady sysyems simulation, dynamic behavior of thermal systems, calculus methods of optimization, probabilistic approaches desigm design and more.
Included in the appendices are a list of comprehensive problems and a computer program for generalized system simulation. You can’t go wrong with this one. Excellent introductory text on the various mathematical methods used to optimize thermal systems.
Example problems with solutions in each chapter quickly reinforce the concepts discussed. Answers to most of the problems are a beneficial aid in helping the student arrive at the correct solution rather than stumbling down a blind alley. There could be more depth in the discussion of thermal systems and design concepts but overall the tradeoff between optimization methods and design concepts is good.
