This book contains the proceedings of the thirteenth conference in the well established series on Simulation and Experiments in Heat Transfer and its applications.
Advances in computational methods for solving and understanding heat transfer problems continue to be important because heat transfer topics and related phenomena are commonly of a complex nature and different mechanisms like heat conduction, convection, turbulence, thermal radiation and phase change as well as chemical reactions may occur simultaneously. Typically, applications are found in heat exchangers, gas turbine cooling, turbulent combustion and fires, fuel cells, batteries, micro- and mini- channels, electronics cooling, melting and solidification, chemical processing etc.
Heat Transfer might be regarded as an established and mature scientific discipline, but it has played a major role in new emerging areas such as sustainable development and reduction of greenhouse gases as well as for micro- and nano- scale structures and bioengineering. Non-linear phenomena other than momentum transfer may occur due to temperature-dependent thermophysical properties. In engineering design and development, reliable and accurate computational methods are requested to replace or complement expensive and time consuming experimental trial an error work.
Tremendous advancements have been achieved during recent years due to improved numerical solution methods for non-linear partial differential equations, turbulence modelling advancements and developments of computers and computing algorithms to achieve efficient and rapid simulations. Nevertheless, to further progress in computational methods requires developments in theoretical and predictive procedures - both basic and innovative - and in applied research. Accurate experimental investigations are needed to validate the numerical calculations.
Topics covered include: Heat Transfer Enhancements; Heat Recovery; Heat Exchangers; Heat Transfer in Energy Producing Devices; Heat and Mass Transfer; Convection and Radiation; Multiphase Flow Heat Transfer; Modelling and Experiments; Experimental and Measuring Technologies.
