About the book

With the noticeably accelerated development in the microelectronic industry and telecommunication technology, electronic components used in such devices have become of higher performance, lighter weight, and more miniaturized. Nowadays, high-power electronic chips are being fabricated in a limited space available for heat dissipation, which results in a high heat density within the electronic components. Accordingly, the reliability and safety of electronic devices will be jeopardized if the heat generated within them is not properly controlled. The rate of failure in electronic equipment rises seriously while increasing the operating temperatures to excessive levels. High thermal expansion due to operation under harsh thermal conditions leads to serious stresses across the solder joints of electronic components mounted on PCBs. Therefore, thermal control has become of increasing importance while designing and operating electronic equipment.

This book is dedicated to discussing a variety of cooling ways commonly utilized in electronics including the conduction cooling, cooling by natural convection and/or radiation, air forced convection cooling, liquid cooling, and immersion cooling. It is aimed to present innovative designs of such cooling techniques with the desire for having effective heat dissipation, low fabrication and operation cost, and compactness.

About the editor

Ahmed Alhusseny

University of Manchester

Ahmed Alhusseny had been awarded his BSc and MSc in air conditioning and refrigeration engineering from the University of Technology, Baghdad, Iraq in 2001 and 2005, respectively. Afterward, he worked as a member of academic staff at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Kufa, Iraq. Then, Ahmed has done a Ph.D. research entitled "Heat Transfer Enhancement Using Rotating Metallic Porous Media" at the University of Manchester, UK. Since May 2016, he has been awarded the Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from the School of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Civil Engineering/ University of Manchester. Dr. Alhusseny is still associated with the University of Manchester as a Visiting Researcher although he has recently returned to Iraq and restarted his former job there as a member of academic staff, where he is currently acting as an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the head of the Branch of Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering there. Besides his publications in a variety of leading scientific journals, he acts as a peer-reviewer for several international journals.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
