A comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the theory, design and manufacture of heat pipes and their applications. This latest edition has been thoroughly revised, up-dated and expanded to give an in-depth coverage of the new developments in the field. Significant new material has been added to all the chapters and the applications section has been totally rewritten to ensure that topical and important applications are appropriately emphasised. The bibliography has been considerably enlarged to incorporate much valuable new information. Thus readers of the previous edition, which has established itself as the standard text on the subject, will find much additional data of interest whilst new readers will find the vast amount of useful data included in the appendices an indispensable source of reference.

The standard heat pipes reference and textFrom the Back Cover:
The standard resource on heat pipe theory, design and applications
The decade since the last edition of Heat Pipes was published has seen a transformation in heat pipe technology and application. The technology has proved beneficial in a wide range of applications, including electronics cooling, die-casting and injection moulding, heat recovery and energy conservation, de-icing and manufacturing process temperature control, as well as in domestic appliances. This is a key reference for anyone with thermal interests in these and other fields.
This latest edition of has been extensively revised and expanded, with new information on the underlying theory of heat pipes and heat transfer, data on pulsating heat pipes and capillary pumped loops, new chapters on design and on electronics cooling applications, and updated applications.
" Detailed coverage of heat pipe theory, design and applications
" A highly practical approach provides the information required to select, design, or manufacture a heat pipe
" Expanded coverage of key applications including electronics cooling, plus a new design guide
Suitable for use as a professional reference and graduate text, this is a sourcebook for those already having knowledge and experience of heat pipes, and will provide an accessible introduction for those approaching the topic for the first time.
