Description

Thermal Design: Heat Sinks, Thermoelectrics, Heat Pipes, Compact Heat Exchangers, and Solar Cells, Second Edition, is a significantly updated new edition which now includes a chapter on thermoelectrics It covers thermal devices such as heat sinks, thermoelectric generators and coolers, heat pipes, and heat exchangers as design components in larger systems. These devices are becoming increasingly important and fundamental in thermal design across such diverse areas as microelectronic cooling, green or thermal energy conversion, and thermal control and management in space. The underlying concepts in this book cover the understanding of the physical mechanisms of the thermal devices with the essential formulas and detailed derivations, and also the design of the thermal devices in conjunction with mathematical modeling, graphical optimization, and occasionally computational-fluid-dynamic (CFD) simulation. This new edition includes more examples, problems and tutorials, and a solutions manual is available on a companion website.
