Thermal Spray Fabrication of Heat Transfer Surfaces and Devices reviews the current state of research on select processes for the development of coatings-based heat transfer surfaces and devices, focusing on materials selection, fabrication processes and materials characterization. Analytical modeling and experiments aimed at quantifying the performance of heat transfer surfaces and devices are presented, along with case studies that reinforce the outcomes of analytical models. The included information helps guide readers to industrial situations in which the coatings or devices may be applied.
- Describes thermal-sprayed coatings in terms of their development as heat transfer surfaces or devices
- Provides predictive models for the thermal performance of surfaces or devices
- Presents case studies that describe potential, practical situations in which coatings or devices may be applied

Milad Rezvani-Rad is currently a PhD student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Alberta. His multi-disciplinary research is focused on the solidification of water inside closed piping systems, development of thermal-sprayed coating systems for energy generation to mitigate ice accumulation and freezing damage in carbon steel pipes, analytical modelling related to the heating and phase change of the ice, and fracture analysis of the steel pipes and the coating systems due to over-pressurization of the entrapped liquid.
