This image shows pore scale simulation of heat and mass transfer in a metal foam. Plane sections: fluid velocity, solid surface and stream lines colored by solid and fluid temperature. Solid structure is reconstructed from 3D sample tomography. Simulations performed to obtain the effective (macroscale) transfer properties.  IUSTI Lab/Heat and Mass Transfer team/Jean-Michel HUGO  This image shows Nusselt number distributions in the entrance region of a horizontal pipe and is from Grassi and Testi in Proceedings of Eurotherm 2008  Developing flow of FC-72 in a uniformly heated horizontal cylindrical pipe was studied in the regime of transitional mixed convection. Heat transfer coefficients were measured at 6 cross sections along the heated length, with 60 azimuthal positions being monitored at each section. A significantly different thermo-fluid-dynamic behaviour was observed between top and bottom of the pipe.  Flow visualisation from PIV testing, showing vortex rollup in jet impingement study by T.S. O´Donovan (EUROTHERM Award winner, 2008). This is an image of an air bubble injected into water from a 1 mm diameter orifice at a rate of 100 ml/min. This image is captured prior to the bubbles departure from the orifice. Donoghue, Murray & Robinson, Fluids & Heat Transfer research group, Trinity College Dublin.
