Product Description

Heat Pipe Science and Technology, Second Edition by Dr. Amir Faghri

Written to cover simple, intermediate, and advanced approaches to the theoretical and experimental analysis of heat pipes, this second edition emphasizes the physics and mathematics of heat pipes as well as the related technological and experimental issues. Reflecting the advancements in heat pipe science and technology, while still adhering to the fundamental principles, this second edition covers topics such as:

  • basic principles and applications of heat pipes
  • solid-liquid-vapor phenomena in heat pipes
  • steady-state characteristics of heat pipes
  • heat transport limitations of heat pipes
  • transient and frozen startup of heat pipes
  • two-phase closed thermosyphons
  • rotating and revolving heat pipes
  • variable conductance heat pipes
  • loop heat pipes and capillary pumped loops
  • micro and miniature heat pipes
  • pulsating and oscillating heat pipes
  • heat pipe heat exchangers and heat sinks
  • nonconventional heat pipes
  • special effects in heat pipes
  • heat pipe design, testing, and manufacturing

About the Author

Amir Faghri is currently a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Connecticut, which he joined in 1994 and where he served as the Head of the Mechanical Engineering Department (1994-1998) and as Dean of the School of Engineering (1998-2006). He is the author of five books, over 300 archival technical publications (including 230 journal papers), has ten U.S. patents, and serves on the editorial boards of seven academic journals. Dr. Faghri has been internationally recognized for his accomplishments in thermophysics and heat transfer, having been awarded a number of prestigious honors and awards including the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Thermophysics Award (1998), the American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME) Heat Transfer Memorial Award (1998), and the ASME James Harry Potter Gold Medal (2005). In 2010, he was awarded the ASME/AIChE (American Institute of Chemical Engineers) Max Jakob Memorial Award, which is the highest honor given in the field of heat transfer.

Amir Faghri received his B.S. (with highest honors) from Oregon State University and obtained his M.S. and PhD. degrees from the University of California at Berkeley.
