About this Reference Work

This Handbook provides researchers, faculty, design engineers in industrial R&D, and practicing engineers in the field concise treatments of advanced and more-recently established topics in thermal science and engineering, with an important emphasis on micro- and nanosystems, not covered in earlier references on applied thermal science, heat transfer or relevant aspects of mechanical/chemical engineering. Major sections address new developments in heat transfer, transport phenomena, single- and multiphase flows with energy transfer, thermal-bioengineering, thermal radiation, combined mode heat transfer, coupled heat and mass transfer, and energy systems. Energy transport at the macro-scale and micro/nano-scales is also included. The internationally recognized team of authors adopt a consistent and systematic approach and writing style, including ample cross reference among topics, offering readers a user-friendly knowledgebase greater than the sum of its parts, perfect for frequent consultation. The Handbook of Thermal Science and Engineering is ideal for academic and professional readers in the traditional and emerging areas of mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, aerospace engineering, bioengineering, electronics fabrication, energy, and manufacturing concerned with the influence thermal phenomena.

About the authors

Dr. Francis A. Kulacki is Professor of mechanical Engineering at the University of Minnesota. His research expertise cuts across fundamental heat transfer correlations, nuclear safety, nuclear waste storage and disposal, catalytic combustion, electro-hydrodynamic augmentation of heat/mass transfer, composite materials, and most recently, boiling of emulsions, micro-channel heat transfer, and heat and mass transfer in frost. He has published over 150 articles and technical reports, presented 200 seminars and invited lectures, and has served as department chair at Delaware, dean of engineering at Colorado State, and dean of the Institute of Technology at the University of Minnesota.
