  • Offers comprehensive book-length treatment of research previously found only in journal articles
  • An interdisciplinary subject attracting wide academic interests
  • A perspective from multifunctionality of periodic cellular metals providing significant industrial applications

Thermo-Fluid Behaviour of Periodic Cellular Metals introduces the study of coupled thermo-fluid behaviour of cellular metals with periodic structure in response to thermal loads, which is an interdisciplinary research area that requires a concurrent-engineering approach.  The book, for the first time, systematically adopts experimental, numerical, and analytical approaches, presents the fluid flow and heat transfer in periodic cellular metals under forced convection conditions, aiming to establish structure-property relationships for tailoring material structures to achieve properties and performance levels that are customized for defined multifunctional applications. The book, as a textbook and reference book, is intended for both academic and industrial people, including graduate students, researchers and engineers.

Dr. Tian Jian Lu is a professor at the School of Aerospace, Xi’an Jiaotong University, Xi’an, China. Dr. Feng Xu is a professor at the Key Laboratory of Biomedical Information Engineering of Ministry of Education, School of Life Science and Technology, Xi’an Jiaotong University.  Dr. Ting Wen is an engineer at Shell Oil Company. Dr. Lu and Dr. Xu are also affiliated with Biomedical Engineering and Biomechanics Center, Xi’an Jiaotong University.
