Cooling Systems of Electronic Devices

Part of the Heat and Mass Transfer book series (HMT)


We attempt here to describe the fundamental equations of fluid mechanics and heat transfer. The main emphasis, however, is on understanding the physical principles and on application of the theory to realistic problems. The state of the art in highheat flux management schemes, pressure and temperature measurement, pressure drop and heat transfer in single-phase and two-phase micro-channels, design and fabrication of micro-channel heat sinks are discussed.
