The work covers both theoretical and practical aspects of thermal contact conductance. The theoretical discussion focuses on heat transfer through spots, joints, and surfaces, as well as the role of interstitial materials (both planned and inadvertent). The practical discussion includes formulae and data that can be used in designing heat-transfer equipment for a variety of joints, including special geometries and configurations. All of the material has been updated to reflect the latest advances in the field.

Thermal control systems are an essential element of spacecraft design, ensuring that all parts of the spacecraft remain within acceptable temperature ranges at all times. Spacecraft thermal control describes the fundamentals of thermal control design and reviews current thermal control technologies. The book begins with an overview of space missions and a description of the space environment, followed by coverage of the heat transfer processes relevant to the field. In the third part of the book, current thermal control technologies are described, and in the final part, design, analysis and testing techniques are reviewed. Provides background on the fundamentals of heat transfer which gives the reader a better understanding of the phenomenon and the way Space Thermal Control Systems work Merges the experience of the authors in teaching aerospace engineering topics with the experience as compilers of the ‘Spacecraft Thermal Control Design Data Handbook’ of the European Space Agency and the development of in orbit thermal control systems for Spanish and ESA Missions The engineering approach is enhanced with a full section on Thermal Control Design, Analysis and Testing

Electronic technology is developing rapidly and, with it, the problems associated with the cooling of microelectronic equipment are becoming increasingly complex. So much so that it is necessary for experts in the fluid and thermal sciences to become involved with the cooling problem. Such thoughts as these led to an approach to leading specialists with a request to contribute to the present book. Cooling of Electronic Systems presents the technical progress achieved in the fundamentals of the thermal management of electronic systems and thermal strategies for the design of microelectronic equipment. The book starts with an introduction to the cooling of electronic systems, involving such topics as trends in computer system cooling, the cooling of high performance computers, thermal design of microelectronic components, natural and forced convection cooling, cooling by impinging air and liquid jets, thermal control systems for high speed computers, together with a detailed review of advances in manufacturing and assembly technology. Following this, practical methods for the determination of the parameters required for the thermal analysis of electronic systems and the accurate prediction of temperature in consumer electronics. Cooling of Electronic Systems is currently the most up-to-date book on the thermal management of electronic and microelectronic equipment, and the subject is presented by eminent scientists and experts in the field. Vital reading for all designers of modern, high-speed computers.

The long-awaited revision of the bestseller on heat conduction Heat Conduction, Third Edition is an update of the classic text on heat conduction, replacing some of the coverage of numerical methods with content on micro- and nanoscale heat transfer. With an emphasis on the mathematics and underlying physics, this new edition has considerable depth and analytical rigor, providing a systematic framework for each solution scheme with attention to boundary conditions and energy conservation. Chapter coverage includes: Heat conduction fundamentals Orthogonal functions, boundary value problems, and the Fourier Series The separation of variables in the rectangular coordinate system The separation of variables in the cylindrical coordinate system The separation of variables in the spherical coordinate system Solution of the heat equation for semi-infinite and infinite domains The use of Duhamel's theorem The use of Green's function for solution of heat conduction The use of the Laplace transform One-dimensional composite medium Moving heat source problems Phase-change problems Approximate analytic methods Integral-transform technique Heat conduction in anisotropic solids Introduction to microscale heat conduction In addition, new capstone examples are included in this edition and extensive problems, cases, and examples have been thoroughly updated. A solutions manual is also available. Heat Conduction is appropriate reading for students in mainstream courses of conduction heat transfer, students in mechanical engineering, and engineers in research and design functions throughout industry.
