This first book in a new series in Thermal an Fluid Physics and Engineering, edited by Professor G. F. Hewitt, is of particular importance to the field at the present time. Edited by Professor F. P. Celata, the topic of microchannels is finding a very large range of applications, particularly in the context of cooling of electronic equipment. Fluid flow and heat transfer process at the microscale bring into play many aspects that are not significant at the macro scale.
The book fills a void in the existing literature and covers a large body of new knowledge in the thermal-fluid dynamics theory and applications in micro-geometries. The volume also presents a critical assessment of the state-of-the-art in the field.
Intended for both academic and industrial audiences.
