    Nanofluids for Boiling Heat Transfer Applications: from a Hopeless Task to New Research Opportunities

    Vortrag von Simone Mancin, University of Padova

    Nanoparticle deposition during boiling has opened new research opportunities introducing a new concept of surface functionalization using a low-cost, easy-to-implement deposition technique. Simone Mancin (University of Padova) will present latest research activities.

    When surfaces matter: using nano-scaled surface features to control macro-scale transport

    Vortrag von Gary Rosengarten (RMIT University)

    Typical heat transfer correlations or surface property data assume that surfaces are smooth, or that they don’t effect transport properties such as convection or even radiation. However, nano-scaled features can have a massive effect on many transport properties- particularly those with free surfaces.
