Description: Written for a a senior undergraduate or the first-year graduate textbook, this book covers modern 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 graphical presentation in Thermal Design provides designers or students with the rich and flexible solutions toward achieving the optimal design.
