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.
* 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
