This work details infallible techniques for designing electronic hardware to withstand severe thermal environments. Using both SI and English units throughout the text, it presents methods for the development of various reliable electronic systems without the need of high-speed computers. It also offers mathematical modelling applications, using analog resistor networks, to provide the break-up of complex systems into numerous individual thermal resistors and nodes, for those who prefer high-speed digital computer solutions to thermal problems.
