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 ( This image is from a paper by Yildirim, Rindt and van Steenhoven in EUROTHERM 2008 Proceedings, which looks at the effect of heat input and the presence of a wire on vortex shedding behind a cylinder This image shows the temperature field behind a heated cylinder, measured using Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF). The flow has a Reynolds number of 130 and a Richardson number of 1.5. This image is taken from a study by Seuntiëns, Rindt and van Steenhoven ( Flow visualisation from PIV testing, showing vortex rollup in jet impingement study by T.S. O´Donovan (EUROTHERM Award winner, 2008).
