Abstract

Thermodynamics and heat transfer provide the language and the concepts to understand the fundamental nature of temperature and how it can be controlled (1-5). For scientists and engineers, these concepts are necessary tools to analyze and develop therapeutic temperature modulation technologies. Examples of temperature control are ubiquitous, from the ice cream freezers in your grocery store to the comfortable passenger cabins inside jet airliners.
