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.  This image shows a nanochannel with a hot wall (left) and a cold wall (right). Heat transfer in the nanochannel is simulated using molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo methods; the research has been conducted by Nidea, Frijns, van Steenhoven and Markvoort (http://w3.wtb.tue.nl/fileadmin/wtb/wtb_energytechnology/poster_Silvia.pdf). This image depicts the evolution of a 3.8 mm equivalent diameter bubble, during its growth and departure from a 1 mm orifice, its rise and bouncing upon a heated surface. The release height in this case is 25 mm. Donoghue, Murray & Robinson, Fluids & Heat Transfer research group, Trinity College Dublin. 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.

Announcements


We sadly inform the sad news of passing away of Professor Geoffrey Hewitt. He was an Honorary Member and a cofounder of the EUROTHERM Committee

Professor Hewitt's contributions to the field have been recognised by his election to the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the US National Academy of Engineering in addition to international awards. He was inspiring thermal scientist and he was founder of Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow Service. He left us far too soon and will be greatly missed by the international communities.



Special issue dedicated to the seventh European Thermal-Sciences Conference (EUROTHERM 2016) held in Krakow, Poland in June 2016 has been published. Heat and Mass Transfer, August 2018, Volume 54, Issue 8, pp.2173–2174)
