Cost, Size, and weight are often the primary constraints on the thermal and physical design of electronic products used in computers, military/aerospace, industrial, and consumer products; business/retail and automotive markets; instrumentation, and telecommunications. Passive thermal control techniques are discussed together with examples. The chapter closes with some thoughts on future directions on the use of CFD for electronic cooling.

Note: A complete version of this chapter will be available here soon to CALCE members
