Fundamentals of Multiphase Heat Transfer and Flow

Authors: Faghri, Amir, Zhang, Yuwen

Free Preview
  • Explains fundamentals of analyzing multiphase flows and heat transfer, stressing liquid vapor (gas) two-phase flow, and fluid-solid (particle) flow, melting, solidification, sublimation, vapor deposition, condensation, evaporation, and boiling
  • Generalizes macroscopic (integral) and microscopic (differential) conservation equations for multiphase heat transfer and fluid flow systems for both local-instance and averaged formulations
  • Brings all three forms of phase change, i.e., liquid–vapor, solid–liquid, and solid–vapor, into one volume and describes them from one perspective
  • Examines solid/liquid/vapor interfacial phenomena, emphasizing the concepts of surface tension, wetting phenomena, disjoining pressure, contact angle, thin films and capillary phenomena
  • Maximizes student comprehension of the thermal fluid behavior of multiphase flows and systems for practical applications across engineering disciplines

About this Textbook

This textbook presents a modern treatment of fundamentals of heat and mass transfer in the context of all types of multiphase flows with possibility of phase-changes among solid, liquid and vapor. It serves equally as a textbook for undergraduate senior and graduate students in a wide variety of engineering disciplines including mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, material science and engineering, nuclear engineering, biomedical engineering, and environmental engineering. Multiphase Heat Transfer and Flow can also be used to teach contemporary and novel applications of heat and mass transfer. Concepts are reinforced with numerous examples and end-of-chapter problems. A solutions manual and PowerPoint presentation are available to instructors. While the book is designed for students, it is also very useful for practicing engineers working in technical areas related to both macro- and micro-scale systems that emphasize multiphase, multicomponent, and non-conventional geometries with coupled heat and mass transfer and phase change, with the possibility of full numerical simulation.


              

 

 

About the authors

Dr. Amir Faghri is currently a Distinguished Professor of Engineering and Distinguished Dean Emeritus of Engineering at the University of Connecticut. He has also served on the board of directors of both public and private companies. As a principal investigator conducting research in heat and mass transfer, he has received numerous external research contracts from the National Science Foundation, National Aeronautics & Space Administration, Department of Defense, Department of Energy, and various industrial companies. Dr. Faghri''s technical productivity is further complemented by his service on the editorial boards of eight scientific journals. Dr. Faghri has received several major honors and awards, including the 1998 American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics (AIAA) Thermophysics Award, the 1998 American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME) Heat Transfer Memorial Award, the 2005 ASME James Harry Potter Gold Medal, and 2010 ASME/AICHE Max Jakob Memorial Award.

Dr. Yuwen Zhang is a professor of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Missouri (MU). His research interest lies in the area of heat and mass transfer and its applications in manufacturing, thermal management, and energy systems. He is the co-editor in chief for Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer and an associate editor for ASME Journal of Heat Transfer. He is the recipient of many awards, including the Young Investigator Award from the Office of Naval Research (ONR; 2002), the MU Chancellor''s Award for Outstanding Research and Creative Activity (2010), and the MU College of Engineering Senior Faculty Research Award (2010). He was elected as a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) in 2007, and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in 2015.
