Materials are the foundation of technology. As such, most universities provide engineering undergraduates with the fundamental concepts of materials science, including crystal structures, imperfections, phase diagrams, materials processing, and materials properties. Few, however, offer the practical, applications-oriented background that their students need to succeed in industry.

Applied Materials Science: Applications of Engineering Materials in Structural, Electronics, Thermal, and Other Industries fills that gap. From a cross-disciplinary perspective that reflects both the multifunctionality of many materials and the wide scope industrial needs, the author examines the practical applications of metal, ceramic, polymer, cement, carbon, and composite materials across a broad range of industries. The topics addressed include electronic packaging, smart materials, thermal management, nondestructive evaluation, and materials development. The text is clear, coherent, and tutorial in style, includes numerous up-to-date references, and provides background material in a series of appendices.

Unique in its breadth of coverage of both materials and their applications, Applied Materials Science is both scientifically rich and technologically relevant. If you work or teach those that aspire to work in an engineering capacity, you will find no text or reference that better prepares its readers for real-world applications of engineering materials.

Thermal and mechanical packaging - the enabling technologies for the physical implementation of electronic systems - are responsible for much of the progress in miniaturization, reliability, and functional density achieved by electronic, microelectronic, and nanoelectronic products during the past 50 years. The inherent inefficiency of electronic devices and their sensitivity to heat have placed thermal packaging on the critical path of nearly every product development effort in traditional, as well as emerging, electronic product categories. Successful thermal packaging is the key differentiator in electronic products, as diverse as supercomputers and cell phones, and continues to be of pivotal importance in the refinement of traditional products and in the development of products for new applications. The Encyclopedia of Thermal Packaging, compiled in four multi-volume sets (Set 1: Thermal Packaging Techniques, Set 2: Thermal Packaging Tools, Set 3: Thermal Packaging Applications, and Set 4: Thermal Packaging Configurations) provides a comprehensive, one-stop treatment of the techniques, tools, applications, and configurations of electronic thermal packaging. Each of the author-written volumes presents the accumulated wisdom and shared perspectives of a few luminaries in the thermal management of electronics. The four sets in the Encyclopedia of Thermal Packaging will provide the novice and student with a complete reference for a quick ascent on the thermal packaging "learning curve," the practitioner with a validated set of techniques and tools to face every challenge, and researchers with a clear definition of the state-of-the-art and emerging needs to guide their future efforts. This encyclopedia will, thus, be of great interest to packaging engineers, electronic product development engineers, and product managers, as well as to researchers in thermal management of electronic and photonic components and systems, and most beneficial to undergraduate and graduate students studying mechanical, electrical, and electronic engineering. Set 3: Thermal Packaging Applications The third set in the Encyclopedia includes two volumes in the planned focus on Thermal Packaging Applications and a single volume on the use of Phase Change Materials (PCM), a most important Thermal Management Technique, not previously addressed in the Encyclopedia. Set 3 opens with Heat Transfer in Avionic Equipment, authored by Dr Boris Abramzon, offering a comprehensive, in-depth treatment of compact heat exchangers and cold plates for avionics cooling, as well as discussion on recent developments in these heat transfer units that are widely used in the thermal control of military and civilian airborne electronics. Along with a detailed presentation of the relevant thermofluid physics and governing equations, and the supporting mathematical design and optimization techniques, the book offers a practical guide for thermal engineers designing avionics cooling equipment, based on the author's 20+ years of experience as a thermal analyst and a practical design engineer for Avionics and related systems. The Set continues with Thermal Management of RF Systems, which addresses sequentially the history, present practice, and future thermal management strategies for electronically-steered RF systems, in the context of the RF operational requirements, as well as device-, module-, and system-level electronic, thermal, and mechanical considerations. This unique text was written by 3 authors, Dr John D Albrecht, Mr David H Altman, Dr Joseph J Maurer, with extensive US Department of Defense and aerospace industry experience in the design, development, and fielding of RF systems. Their combined efforts have resulted in a text, which is well-grounded in the relevant past, present, and future RF systems and technologies. Thus, this volume will provide the designers of advanced radars and other electronic RF systems with the tools and the knowledge to address the thermal management challenges of today's technologies, as well as of advanced technologies, such as wide bandgap semiconductors, heterogeneously integrated devices, and 3D chipsets and stacks. The third volume in Set 3, Phase Change Materials for Thermal Management of Electronic Components, co-authored by Prof Gennady Ziskind and Dr Yoram Kozak, provides a detailed description of the numerical methods used in PCM analysis and a detailed explanation of the processes that accompany and characterize solid-liquid phase-change in popular basic and advanced geometries. These provide a foundation for an in-depth exploration of specific electronics thermal management applications of Phase Change Materials. This volume is anchored in the unique PCM knowledge and experience of the senior author and placed in the context of the extensive solid-liquid phase-change literature in such diverse fields as material science, mathematical modeling, experimental and numerical methods, and thermofluid science and engineering.

Inside industrial furnaces and combustion chambers, energy is essentially exchanged by radiation. It is through the same mechanism that the energy emitted by the Sun spreads through different media to reach the Earth. Developing a sound understanding of the laws underlying energy exchanges by radiation is therefore essential, not only for establishing design equations for industrial equipment, but also for an optimal harvesting of solar energy and a better understanding of climate change phenomena such as the greenhouse effect. Energy Transfers by Radiation establishes the basic laws and equations which support the quantification of energy fluxes transferred between surfaces for situations similar to those usually encountered in industrial processes or in solar energy applications.
