Convective Heat and Mass Transfer in an Insulated Trailing Swirl

V. A. Bubnov
Moscow Urban Pedagogical University, Moscow, Russia


The laws of convective heat and mass transfer in an insulated trailing swirl are experimentally and theoretically studied in this book. Based on experimental data on full-scale and laboratory vortices, the hydrodynamic structure of an insulated trailing swirl is found. The structure reflects the properties of both real hurricanes and flows in devices that operate using the principles of vortex flow. The book is intended for scientific workers and engineers working in the fields of hydrodynamics, thermal physics, power, and chemical engineering, and for postgraduate students.
