Heat Transfer 2010
|Event Date/Time: Jun 14, 2010||End Date/Time: Jun 16, 2010|
Research and development of computational methods for solving and understanding heat transfer problems continue to be important because heat transfer topics are commonly of a complex nature and different mechanisms such as heat conduction, convection, turbulence, thermal radiation and phase change may occur simultaneously. Typically, applications are found in heat exchangers, gas turbine cooling, turbulent combustions and fires, electronics cooling, melting and solidification. Heat transfer has played a major role in new application fields such as sustainable development and the reduction of greenhouse gases as well as for micro- and nano-scale structures and bio-engineering.
In engineering design and development, reliable and accurate computational methods are required to replace or complement expensive and time consuming experimental trial and error work. Tremendous advancements have been achieved during recent years due to improved numerical solutions of non-linear partial differential equations and computer developments to achieve efficient and rapid calculations. Nevertheless, to further progress, computational methods will require developments in theoretical and predictive procedures â€“ both basic and innovative â€“ and in applied research. Accurate experimental investigations are needed to validate the numerical calculations.
The meeting will be of interest to all scientists and engineers who are actively involved in developing innovative approaches in the heat transfer field, as well as in solving a variety of industrial problems.
