Description - Nanoparticle Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow by W. J. Minkowycz

Featuring contributions by leading researchers in the field, Nanoparticle Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow explores heat transfer and fluid flow processes in nanomaterials and nanofluids, which are becoming increasingly important across the engineering disciplines. The book covers a wide range, from biomedical and energy conversion applications to materials properties, and addresses aspects that are essential for further progress in the field, including numerical quantification, modeling, simulation, and presentation.

Topics include:

  • A broad review of nanofluid applications, including industrial heat transfer, biomedical engineering, electronics, energy conversion, membrane filtration, and automotive
  • An overview of thermofluids and their importance in biomedical applications and heat-transfer enhancement
  • A deeper look at biomedical applications such as nanoparticle hyperthermia treatments for cancers
  • Issues in energy conversion from dispersed forms to more concentrated and utilizable forms
  • Issues in nanofluid properties, which are less predictable and less repeatable than those of other media that participate in fluid flow and heat transfer
  • Advances in computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modeling of membrane filtration at the microscale
  • The role of nanofluids as a coolant in microchannel heat transfer for the thermal management of electronic equipment
  • The potential enhancement of natural convection due to nanoparticles

Examining key topics and applications in nanoscale heat transfer and fluid flow, this comprehensive book presents the current state of the art and a view of the future. It offers a valuable resource for experts as well as newcomers interested in developing innovative modeling and numerical simulation in this growing field.

Author Biography - W. J. Minkowycz

W.J. Minkowycz is the James P. Hartnett Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He joined the faculty at UIC in 1966. His primary research interests lie in the numerical modeling of fluid flow and heat transfer problems. Professor Minkowycz is currently the editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, Numerical Heat Transfer, and International Communications in Heat and Mass Transfer. He has won numerous awards for his excellence in teaching, research, and service to the heat transfer community. E.M. Sparrow is a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Minnesota. He has taught and performed research there since 1959. Prior to that, he worked in industry. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Max Jakob awardee, and is a Morse Alumni Distinguished Teaching Professor and Institute Professor. He has published more than 750 peer-reviewed articles on a wide variety of topics in heat transfer and fluid flow and has guided the research for 90 Ph.D. degrees and 215 MS degrees. Dr. John Abraham has worked in the area of thermal sciences for approximately 20 years. His research areas include nanoscale thermal processes, energy production and distribution, climate monitoring, and medical device development. He has approximately 150 journal publications, conference presentations, book chapters, and patents.
