  • Discusses imaging of important applications in heat and mass transfer
  • Provides detailed interpretation and analysis of images recorded and discussed in the text
  • Features case studies including flow past heated bluff bodies, buoyant jets, convection patterns arising in crystal growth, and fluid-fluid interfaces
Imaging Heat and Mass Transfer Processes: Visualization and Analysis applies Schlieren and shadowgraph techniques to complex heat and mass transfer processes. Several applications are considered where thermal and concentration fields play a central role. These include vortex shedding and suppression from stationary and oscillating bluff bodies such as cylinders, convection around crystals growing from solution, and buoyant jets. Many of these processes are unsteady and three dimensional. The interpretation and analysis of images recorded are discussed in the text.
