Design And Technology Of Heat Pipes For Cooling And Heat Exchange

1st Edition

Cal Silverstein
August 01, 1992

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,...

Post-Dryout Heat Transfer

1st Edition

G. F. Hewitt, J. M. Delhaye, N. Zuber
June 04, 1992

The study of post-dryout heat transfer has generated great interest because of its importance in determining maximum clad temperature in nuclear reactor loss-of-coolant accidents (LOCAs). An associated phenomenon, the deterioration of heat transfer in boiling, is significant to other industrial...

Discrete Mathematics: for New Technology

1st Edition

Rowan Garnier
May 01, 1992

In a comprehensive yet easy-to-follow manner, Discrete Mathematics for New Technology follows the progression from the basic mathematical concepts covered by the GCSE in the UK and by high-school algebra in the USA to the more sophisticated mathematical concepts examined in the latter stages of the...

Petroleum Processing Handbook

1st Edition
