The second law of thermodynamics is used as a basis for evaluating the irreversibility, entropy generation) associated with simple heat transfer processes. The irreversibility production is analyzed from the local level, at one point in a convective heat transfer arrangement. A limited review of second law analysis applied to classic engineering components for heat exchange is presented. In this category, such topics as: heat transfer augmentation techniques, heat exchanger design, and thermal insulation systems are included. Analytical methods for evaluating and minimizing the irreversibility associated with textbook-type components of heat transfer equipment are presented
