About this book

The revised second edition of this practical book reviews the fundamentals of cryogenic liquid behaviour in small and large scale storage systems. The text is based on research findings on the convective and evaporative behaviour of cryogenic fluids, aimed at improving the design, construction and operation of low-loss cryogenic liquid storage systems, with a view to minimising cost and improving operational safety.
Since the first edition was published in 2006, the breadth of cryogenic applications and the modelling of cryogenic fluid dynamics (CFD) have expanded in several directions. In this second edition, most chapters have been extended to introduce discussions of these new applications and their safety and energy economy. These include advances in the modelling of CFD required in, for example, the design of miniature cryocoolers and condensers and reboilers, large-scale cryogenic liquid mixture properties and their stability, and the understanding that hazards and safety problems in the public domain increase with the scaling up of cryogenic systems.
With helpful summaries at the end of each chapter, the book is an essential reference for anyone working on the design and operation of cryogenic liquid storage and transportation systems.

About the authors

Ralph Scurlock is Emeritus Professor of Cryogenic Engineering, and formerly Director of the Institute of Cryogenics, University of Southampton, UK. In 1999, Ralph Scurlock was selected by the CEC for the Samuel C. Collins Award for his work on cryogenic technology. He was the first person from outside the USA to be awarded this prestigious prize. He is the author of many papers and several books including "Low Temperature Behaviour of Solids", 1965, "History and Origins of Cryogenics",1994, and "Low Loss Dewars and Tanks", 2004.

Thom Bostock is a consulting engineer with Rifi at the University of Southampton, and has over ten years of experience in commercial testing and consultancy, specialising in bespoke testing, manufacture and development of custom test rigs and machines; particularly for thermal and mechanical testing. Since joining RIfI in 2008 Thom has completed over 100 consultancy projects characterising a diverse range of materials including; cellular solids, composites, polymers, metals and engineered woods. Thom is an expert in mechanical measurements at low temperatures. Previous work including testing metallic and polymer tapes under liquid helium, cellular solids under liquid nitrogen, and a vast range of materials in cold gas environments.
