Heat Pipes Summary

Heat Pipes: Theory, Design and Applications by David Reay (Manager, David Reay and Associates Visiting Professor, Northumbria University Researcher, Newcastle University Honorary Professor at Nottingham University, UK)

Heat Pipes, 6th Edition, takes a highly practical approach to the design and selection of heat pipes, making it an essential guide for practicing engineers and an ideal text for postgraduate students. This new edition has been revised to include new information on the underlying theory of heat pipes and heat transfer, and features fully updated applications, new data sections, and updated chapters on design and electronics cooling. The book is a useful reference for those with experience and an accessible introduction for those approaching the topic for the first time.

Heat Pipes Reviews

Overall...an excellent book that covers the subject in great depth for the benefit of heat pipe designers and users...Engineers will no doubt continue to stretch the boundaries of heat pipe technology, and this book would be a valuable addition to the technical library of any engineer working with heat pipes. --MachineBuilding.net, June, 2014 ...outlines the theory, design, and applications of heat pipes, including their historical development, heat transfer and fluid flow theory relevant to the operation of the classical wicked heat pipe, analytical techniques, components and materials and compatibility data, and testing...This edition has been revised to integrate new information on the underlying theory of heat pipes and heat transfer and has new data on thermosyphons, applications, and manufacturing methods. --ProtoView.com, February 2014

About David Reay (Manager, David Reay and Associates Visiting Professor, Northumbria University Researcher, Newcastle University Honorary Professor at Nottingham University, UK)

David Reay manages David Reay & Associates, UK, is a Visiting Professor at Northumbria University, Researcher at Newcastle University, and Honorary Professor at Nottingham University, UK. His main research interests are compact heat exchangers, process intensification, and heat pumps. He is also Editor-in-Chief of Applied Thermal Engineering and Author/Co-author of eight other books, including the second edition of Process Intensification published in 2013. Ryan McGlen is Senior Advanced Technologies Engineer at Thermacore Europe Ltd. where he leads research and development of future heat pipe technologies. Current research interests include novel heat pipe materials and working fluids combinations and additive layer manufacture of aluminium heat pipes with complex 3D Sintered Style wicks (SSHP). Peter Kew first became involved in heat pipes in the late 1970s as a research officer with International Research and Development working on a range of heat transfer and energy conservation projects, including heat pipe development which was then led by David Reay. He has maintained this interest for over 20 years as a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer at Heriot-Watt University researching evaporative heat transfer. Currently Dr Kew is Associate Head of the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Heriot-Watt University responsible for the School's activities on the Dubai Campus of the University.
