About this book

The book treats the problem of single- and two-phase heat transfer in micro-channels. We consider the effect of wall roughness on energy dissipation, axial heat conduction, operating parameters corresponding to stable and unstable flow and steady and unsteady flow with distinct interface. In the book we use our own results on a number of problems related to flow and heat transfer, as well as those of numerous theoretical and experimental investigations published in current literature. The presented materials are easily comprehensible to engineers and engineering students with some graduate-level familiarity of fluid mechanics and the theory of heat transfer.

About the authors

Dr. Yarin is Visiting Professor of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Technion -Israel Institute of Technology. He received his MS degree from Polytechnic Institute of Kharkov in 1952, his Candidate of Technical Sciences (Ph.D)degree from Institute of Energetics Acad. Of Kazakhstan in 1962 and his Doctor of Technical Sciences degree from the Institute of High Temperatures Acad. Sci. USSR in 1970. He is the author of about . 200 research works (including 5 monographs) in the fields of the Combustion Theory, Heat and Mass Transfer, Two-Phase Flows, Turbulent Flows, Energetics, Aircraft and Rocket Engines, Experimental Method in Gas Dynamics and Heat Transfer, Thermoanemometry, High Temperature Combustion Reactors and Microfluid Mechanics. The research activities of Professor Yarin have focused on detailed analysis of aerodynamics and thermal regimes of combustion in gas torches, gas, liquid fuels and coal combustion, combustion waves propagations in porous and bubbly media aerodynamics of furnaces and combustion chambers of jet and rocket engines, gasodynamics of jet flows, hydrodynamics of stratified flows, magnetohydrodynamics, turbulent two-phase flows, as well as the theory of chemical reactors, microfluid mechanics, in particular heat and mass transfer in micro-channels. He was Professor, Heat and Chair of Engineering Thermal Physics in Ukta Industrial Institute, where teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in Hydrodynamics, Heat and Mass Transfer, Thermodynamics. He is also teaching in Technion - Israel Institute of Technology undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D course "Principles of Combustion of Two-Phase Media."

Dr Mosyak is Research Fellow, Senior A of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Technion, Haifa, Israel. He received his MS degree from Polytechnic Institute of Odessa in 1960, his Candidate of Technical Sciences (Ph.D) degree from Polytechnic Institute of Odessa in 1972. He is the author of about 100 research works in the field turbulent flows, two-phase flows, heat and mass transfer, microfluid mechanics and thermodynamics. He was Associate Professor of Energy Engineering, Kishinev Polytechnic Institute, USSR where teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in Hydrodynamics, Heat and Mass Transfer, Thermodynamics.

Dr. Hetsroni is Danciger Professor of Engineering, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. He received his B.Sc. Cum Laude, Technion, I.I.T. in 1957, and got Ph.D from Michigan State University in 1963. He was with the Atomic Power Division of Westinghouse for a couple of years before joining the Faculty at the Technion in 1965; since 1974 he is Danciger Professor of Engineering. In the U.S.A. he held positions also with the Electric Power Research Institute. At the Technion he has served as Dean of Mechanical Engineering, and as Head of the Neaman Institute for Advanced Studies. He was also Head of the National Council for Research and Development of Israel. He was Visiting Professor at Carnegie Mellon University, Stanford University, the University of California-Santa Barbara, the University of Minnesota and the University of New South Wales. He was the Vice President for Region XIII of the ASME International and was a Governor of the ASME. He is a Chief Editor of the International Journal of Multiphase Flow. He is the author of about 250 research works (including 5 monographs) in the fields of Multiphase flow and heat transfer, Experimental and computational fluid mechanics and heat transfer, Turbulent Flows, Thermal-hydraulic design of nuclear reactors, Turbulent Boundary layers, Boiling and Steam Generators.

At present he is the Chief of the Multiphase Flow Laboratory of Technion. (http://techunix.technion.ac.il/multiphaselab)

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This monograph discuss many aspects of flow and heat transfer in single channels and networks of channels. … this book is a valuable contribution to the literature on heat transfer and single and two-phase flow in small channels. The book is nicely put together and largely free of typographical errors. … All readers will gain something from spending time with this book. In addition, the authors have succeeded in producing a monograph that should motivate new research in the field." (Howard A. Stone, International Journal of Multiphase Flow, Vol. 35 (6), 2009)

"The topic of micro-channels finds a very large range of applications, particularly in the context of cooling of electronic equipment, and this book is of particular importance to the field. … The book fills a gap in the existing literature and covers a large body of new knowledge in the thermo-fluid dynamics and applications in micro-geometries. … Intended for both academic and industrial audiences … . The book is recommended for libraries, R & D establishments as well as for educational institutions." (K. N. Shukla, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1156, 2009)
