Description

Heat pipes are used in a wide range of applications, including electronics cooling, die-casting and injection moulding, heat recovery and energy conservation, de-icing and manufacturing process temperature control, and in domestic appliances. An essential guide for practicing engineers and an ideal text for postgraduate students, the book takes a highly practical approach to the design and selection of heat pipes. It is both a useful sourcebook and an accessible introduction for those approaching the topic for the first time.

Key Features

  • Contains all information necessary to design and manufacture Heat Pipes
  • Provides a highly practical reference for engineers and graduate students
  • Extensively revised and expanded, including increased coverage of key electronics cooling application as well as a brand new design guide

Readership

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
