The Springer VDI Heat Atlas (VDI Wärmeatlas) is one of the most important established books in matters of heat transfer engineering. For more than 50 years it has been an indispensable working means for engineers dealing with questions of heat transfer, and it is well-established for industrial engineering in Europe and worldwide. This reference book allows calculating the heat transport in technical equipment for the process industry, thermal power engineering and related subjects and thereby is a powerful tool for design purposes. The 1st international edition published in 1993 was based on the 6th German edition and soon was sold out. The 10th German edition (2006) is now followed by a second 2nd international edition. For this 2nd international edition all parts were examined thoroughly and revised, thus ensuring a maximum of security in the data, and modern state-of-the-art methods and analyses.

The reference book covers most fields of heat transfer in industrial and engineering applications, presenting the interrelationships between basic scientific methods, experimental techniques, model-based analysis and their transfer to technical applications.
