Heat Pipes, 6th Edition, takes a highly practical approach to the design and selection of heat pipes, making it an essential guide for practicing engineers and an ideal text for postgraduate students. This new edition has been revised to include new information on the underlying theory of heat pipes and heat transfer, and features fully updated applications, new data sections, and updated chapters on design and electronics cooling. The book is a useful reference for those with experience and an accessible introduction for those approaching the topic for the first time. Contains all information required to design and manufacture a heat pipe Suitable for use as a professional reference and graduate text Revised with greater coverage of key electronic cooling applicationsThe Thermacore a#39;Therma-Basea#39; unit  uses a copper-sintered wick, the unit being illustrated in Fig. ... alternative method for achieving something approaching uniform heat distribution across plate is to embed heat pipes of tubular form within it, as shown in the Thermacore unit in Fig. ... One heat pipe that was mounted vertically was used in the thermal control of thermoelectric refrigeration units . ... Careful assessment for fluid inventory in wicked heat pipes of all types is essential.
