Nano/Microscale Heat Transfer by Zhuomin M. Zhang


Nano/Microscale Heat Transfer by Zhuomin M. Zhang

A THOROUGH EXPLANATION OF THE METHODOLOGIES USED FOR SOLVING HEAT TRANSFER PROBLEMS IN MICRO- AND NANOSYSTEMS. Written by one of the field's pioneers, this highly practical, focused resource integrates the existing body of traditional knowledge with the most recent breakthroughs to offer the reader a solid foundation as well as working technical skills. THE INFORMATION NEEDED TO ACCOUNT FOR THE SIZE EFFECT WHEN DESIGNING AND ANALYZING SYSTEMS AT THE NANOMETER SCALE, WITH COVERAGE OFStatistical Thermodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, Thermal Properties of Molecules, Kinetic Theory, and Micro/Nanofluidics Thermal Transport in Solid Micro/Nanostructures, Electron and Phonon Scattering, Size Effects, Quantum Conductance, Electronic Band Theory, Tunneling, Nonequilibrium Heat Conduction, and Analysis of Solid State Devices Such As Thermoelectric Refrigeration and Optoelectronics Nanoscale Thermal Radiation and Radiative Properties of Nanomaterials, Radiation Temperature and Entropy, Surface Electromagnetic Waves, and Near-Field Radiation for Energy Conversion Devices IN THE NANOWORLD WHERE THE OLD AXIOMS OF THERMAL ANALYSIS MAY NOT APPLY, NANO/MICROSCALE HEAT TRANSFER IS AN ESSENTIAL RESEARCH AND LEARNING SOURCE. Inside: * Statistical Thermodynamics and Kinetic Theory * Thermal Properties of Solids * Thermal Transport in Solids Micro/Nanostructures * Micro/Nanoscale Thermal Radiation * Radiative Properties of Nanomaterials

Thanks to Lovereading I have discovered new writers and read books I would never had looked twice at - and enjoyed them.

Angela Rhodes

Insightful reader reviews and unbiased recommendations. I don't know how I chose books before Lovereading! An essential for all book lovers.

Sarah Harper

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Emma Caddick

I love 'try before you buy' extracts. I love the wide range of authors & genres. I love the author info. I love books!

Judi Davies

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
