This book is essential for anyone involved in the design of high-performance heat exchangers or heat devices, also known as "second generation heat transfer technology." Enhanced surfaces are geometrics with special shapes that promote much higher rates of heat transfer than smooth or plain surfaces. This revision presents the subject matter just beyond the introductory level and traces the advancement of heat transfer research in areas such as integral-fin and micro-fin tubes, complex plate-fin geometries, and micro-channels for single-phase and two-phase applications.
NEW TO THIS EDITION:
BL Design and enhancement of micro-thermal devices responsible for cooling micro-reactors, electronic chips, and micro-combustors.
BL More practice problems, theoretically-based equations, and correlations to predict the heat transfer and friction characteristics of a multitude of enhancement concepts.
BL A comprehensive list of over 9,500 literature sources on the subject of enhancedheat transfer provided on a CD-ROM.
This expansion of the first book published on the subject of enhanced heat transfer is a valuable addition to the working libraries of HVAC professionals and mechanical, aerospace, and chemical engineers. As a textbook, it introduces senior undergraduates and graduate students to state-of-the-art technology and advanced modeling methodology.
