This book describes the characteristics of heat pipes under steady-state and transient operating conditions. It emphasizes the physical aspects of heat pipe behavior and develops design formulas on the basis of mathematical models and empirical observation. The author take a tutorial approach, presenting information on the application of heat pipe technology, design methods, and data to heat pipe cooling and heat exchange requirements. He provides the nonspecialist with sufficient understanding of heat pipe technology to appreciate and assess its application potential, while also meeting the needs of the experienced heat pipe designer and researcher.

Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
