Description

Heat exchangers with minichannel and microchannel flow passages are becoming increasingly popular because of their ability to remove large heat fluxes under single-phase and two-phase applications. This book serves as a sourcebook for those individuals involved in the design processes of microchannel flow passages in a heat exchanger.

Key Features

This book manages to present its findings in a manner that is directly useful to a designer, while a researcher is able to use the information in developing new models, or in identifying research needs. Each chapter is accompanied by a ‘real life' case study. First book published solely dealing with heat and fluid flow in minichannels and microchannels.

Readership

Researchers and graduate students working with advanced heat exchangers and cooling systems, as well as industry practitioners engaged in designing such heat exchangers in electronics cooling, fuel cell, and high flux cooling applications should find the book an indispensable tool.
