Boiling: Research and Advances presents the latest developments and improvements in the technologies, instrumentation, and equipment surrounding boiling. Presented by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers, the book takes a holistic approach, first providing principles, and then numerous practical applications that consider size scales.
Through six chapters, the book covers contributed sections from knowledgeable specialists on various topics, ranging from outlining boiling phenomena and heat transfer characteristics, to the numerical simulation of liquid-gas two phase flow. It summarizes, in a single volume, the state-of-the-art in boiling heat transfer and provides a valuable resource for thermal engineers and practitioners working in the thermal sciences and thermal engineering.
- Explores the most recent advancements in boiling research and technology from the last twenty years
- Provides section content written by contributing experts in their respective research areas
- Shares research being conducted and advancements being made on boiling and heat transfer in Japan, one of the major research hubs in this field

Yasuo Koizumi is a research promoter at the University of Electro- Communications. He had been an invited researcher of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency for 5 years before now. He received his PhD degree from the University of Tokyo in 1977. He started his research career at the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute in 1977 as a research engineer for nuclear reactor safety. He stayed at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory from 1981 through 1983. He moved to the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Kogakuin University in 1989. Then, he moved to the Department of Functional Machinery and Mechanics of Shinshu University in 2008. He retired as professor in 2014 and he had been in the Japan Atomic Energy Agency since then. His research is focused in the areas of pool and flow boiling, critical heat flux, condensation heat transfer, and two-phase flow. He is also interested in heat transfer and fluid flow on the microscale. Since his research field is closely related to energy systems, he has great interest in thermal and nuclear power stations and energy supply in society.
