Abstract/Description:
Florida Technological University College of Engineering Thesis; This thesis addresses the problem of stracting heat from sealed electronic enclosures. Typical industry practice is to use various air-to-air and air-to-liquid heat exchangers. These techniques are known to require costly custom designs. This thesis points out how one can apply heat pipe technology in the form of a vapor chamber to solve this type of problem. The details on the design and testing of two prototype vapor chambers are cited. Included in the text are typical industrial applications that required sealed enclosures to protect their associated electronic control hardware. Also mentioned is some historical background on heat pipes.
