Description

This volume covers the modern developments in boiling heat transfer and two-phase flow, and is intended to provide industrial, government and academic researchers with state-of-the-art research findings in the area of multiphase flow and heat transfer technology. Special attention is given to technology transfer, indicating how recent significant results may be used for practical applications.

The chapters give detailed technical material that will be useful to engineers and scientists who work in the field of multiphase flow and heat transfer.

The authors of all chapters are members of the CMR at Rensselaer, a research centre specializing in the state-of-the-art in multiphase science.
