Heat Pipes 6th edition is an essential guide for practicing engineers and an ideal text for postgraduate students. This book takes a highly practical approach to the design and selection of heat pipes.
This new edition has been updated with new information on the underlying theory of heat pipes and heat transfer, fully updated applications, new data sections, updated chapters on design and on electronics cooling applications. Reays book is a useful reference as well as an accessible introduction for those approaching the topic for the first time.
Professional engineers, secondary readership among postgraduate students and researchers; Thermal engineers; Key applications in aerospace, electronics/electronics packaging, building thermal management, materials processing, nuclear; thermo-electro-mechanical device, heat pipe, heat exchanger and thermosiphon designers and manufacturers; Mechanical, electrical and civil engineering students focusing on thermal engineering and heat transfer and thermal control systems; At undergraduate level this subject is introduced as a core heat transfer (or heat and mass transfer) course
