Heat Transfer in Aerospace Applications is the first book to provide an overall description of various heat transfer issues of relevance for aerospace applications. The book contains chapters relating to convection cooling, heat pipes, ablation, heat transfer at high velocity, low pressure and microgravity, aircraft heat exchangers, fuel cells, and cryogenic cooling systems.

Chapters specific to low density heat transfer (4) and microgravity heat transfer (9) are newer subjects which have not been previously covered. The book takes a basic engineering approach by including correlations and examples that an engineer needs during the initial phases of vehicle design or to quickly analyze and solve a specific problem. Designed for mechanical, chemical, and aerospace engineers in research institutes, companies, and consulting firms, this book is an invaluable resource for the latest on aerospace heat transfer engineering and research.

About Juan Fu

Bengt Sunden graduated as a M. Sc. in Mechanical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology, Goeteborg, Sweden in 1973 and presented his PhD-thesis in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics in 1979 at Chalmers University. In 1980 he was appointed Docent (the highest academic degree in Sweden) and held positions there as Research Associate, Docent and University lecturer. In 1992 he was appointed Professor of Heat Transfer at Lund University, Lund, Sweden. Since 1995 he serves as the Head of the Department of Energy Sciences. Juan Fu is a relatively recent PhD graduate working in the field of aerospace heat transfer.
