Engineering “Cool” Conditions with Advanced Smart Materials (.PDF Download)

Heat is an operational condition that can hinder any mechanic operation. Most sensors use heat as a secondary indicator of failure after noise (i.e., excessive vibration generates heat). Devices are also now designed more compact and with less ventilation. The buildup of excessive heat can create mechanical operation problems and failures.
