(A chapter from)
Applied Computational Fluid Dynamics
Edited by Vijay K. Garg
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.
