Heat Sinks, Thermoelectrics, Heat Pipes, Compact Heat Exchangers, and Solar Cells
An all-encompassing guide to designing and optimizing modern thermal systems
Today's thermal systems have wide and varied uses—from providing electrical power generation in large manufacturing plants to cooling in electronic devices. As these systems grow technologically and continue to extend their reach, knowledge of their design and functionality takes on
greater significance for engineers.
In an easy-to-follow format, Thermal Design combines learning tools such as example problems, mathematical modeling, and computer software to help students and practitioners grasp complex design concepts quickly. Step-by-step instruction on creating virtual thermal systems augments the book's teachings on fundamentals, theory, and techniques, allowing readers to reach graphical solutions of even highly detailed processes confidently. Thermal Design:
Provides the derivative process of each equation, plotted in figures that can be easily followed
Delivers tutorials in the appendices appropriate for use in computational fluid dynamics and MathCAD homework problems
Covers topics such as microelectronic cooling, green energy conversion, thermal control, and management in space
This straightforward guide separates itself from other books in the field by covering a broader range of insightful topics concerning thermal devices, making it an ideal textbook for college students as well as a valuable companion for professionals in the field.
