Heat Transfer in Aerospace Applicationsis the first book to provide an overall description of various heat transfer issues of relevance for aerospace applications. The book contains chapters relating to convection cooling, heat pipes, ablation, heat transfer at high velocity, low pressure and microgravity, aircraft heat exchangers, fuel cells, and cryogenic cooling systems.

Chapters specific to low density heat transfer (4) and microgravity heat transfer (9) are newer subjects which have not been previously covered. The book takes a basic engineering approach by including correlations and examples that an engineer needs during the initial phases of vehicle design or to quickly analyze and solve a specific problem. Designed for mechanical, chemical, and aerospace engineers in research institutes, companies, and consulting firms, this book is an invaluable resource for the latest on aerospace heat transfer engineering and research.

  • Provides an overall description of heat transfer issues of relevance for aerospace applications
  • Discusses why thermal problems arise and introduces the various heat transfer modes
  • Helps solve the problem of selecting and calculating the cooling system, the heat exchanger, and heat protection
  • Features a collection of problems in which the methods presented in the book can be used to solve these problems
Bengt Sundén graduated as a M. Sc. in Mechanical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden in 1973 and presented his PhD-thesis in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics in 1979 at Chalmers University. In 1980 he was appointed Docent (the highest academic degree in Sweden) and held positions there as Research Assoc...
