Paper Abstract

A numerical analysis of the steady-state temperature profile in a thin, liquid-cooled rotating x-ray anode is presented. The numerical solution accounts for two-dimensional conduction and the possibility of a non-uniform electron flux. Use of the numerical solution yields important information about temperatures and temperature gradients in the anode.
