## Beschreibung

The Australasian Heat and Mass Transfer Conference, held in Sydney in December 1996, is the sixth in an ongoing series. The Conference was held in honor of Emeritus Professor Graham de Vahl Davis, to celebrate his significant contribution to the understanding of natural convection, and his pioneering and continuing work in developing computational techniques for research in heat and mass transfer. These proceedings contain the text of six invited keynote papers and 63 contributed papers. The papers have been organized 12 sections, preceded by a keynote paper.
