Abstract

As the thrust towards miniaturization continues, the thermal density of electronic equipment will con- tinue to increase. There is also a need to stack equip- ment to minimize the use of space. In these cases, it is desirable to direct the airflow from front to back; otherwise the rising hot air will overheat the top units in the stack.
