    Redefining Boiling Phenomena – New understanding of the heat transfer mechanisms during pool and flow boiling

    Prof. Satish G. Kandlikar (RIT)

    Talk by Satish G. Kandlikar (Rochester Institute of Technology, NY)

    Prof. Satish Kandlikar will give a talk on recently identified mechanisms which have been exploited to provide a new level of boiling heat transfer enhancement. Prof. Kandlikar's recent work on pool and flow boiling has provided a mechanistic understanding of the boiling phenomena at microscale and produced enhancement structures dissipating exceptionally high heat fluxes along with very high heat transfer coefficients.

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

    Talk by 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.
