Transient Thermal Stresses in Multilayered Devices

  • An-Yu Kuo
  • Kuan-Luen Chen


Thermal stress in a multilayered strip is an important problem in electronics packaging and has received great attention in recent years. Thermal stress solutions to the multilayered strip problem under steady-state temperature conditions have been discussed in Chapters 1–3 of this book. This chapter focuses only on the transient behaviors of thermal stresses in multilayered devices.
