Industrial Applications of Heat, Mass and Fluid Dynamic Boundary Layers edited by Doctors Fagbenle, Amoo, Aliu and Falana brings together the latest research on boundary layers where there has been remarkable advancements over the last 5 years. This book highlights relevant concepts and solutions to energy issues and environmental sustainability by combining comprehension of fundamental theory on boundary layers with real-world industrial applications from, among others, the thermal, nuclear and chemical industries. The editors and their team of expert contributors discuss many core themes, including advanced heat transfer fluids and boundary layer analysis, physics of fluid motion and viscous flow, thermodynamics and transport phenomena, alongside key methods of analysis such as the Merk-Chao-Fagbenle method. The main focus is to assess the role and influence of boundary layers on energy related technologies and to offer a close look at current global energy-related problems. This book’s multidisciplinary coverage will give engineers, scientists, researchers and graduate students in the areas of heat, mass, fluid flow and transfer a thorough understanding of the technicalities, methods, and applications of boundary layers, with a unified approach to energy, climate change and a sustainable future.

Dr. Amoo was a doctoral boundary layer student of Professor Fagbenle at the prestigious University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He is currently an engineer at Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems (Melbourne, FL, USA). He was formerly a senior mechanical engineer at Raytheon Missile Systems, to develop future missile technologies such as hypersonic technology for the United States and UTC-Pratt & Whitney in East Hartford, Connecticut, USA. He was also an engineer at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, USA. Together with a colleague at Pratt & Whitney, he obtained a patent for the development of a new technique that could optimize fan blades for next-generation low- carbon and advanced jet engines, which continues to be a NASA-funded initiative to this day. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). His areas of research are energy, exergy, nanofluids, and laminar boundary layer convective heat transfer.
