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.
For mechanical and chemical engineers, heat transfer specialists, energy managers, environmental engineers, and engineering students.
