ISBN Print: 978-1-56700-147-1

ISBN Online: 978-1-56700-444-1

The results from experiments conducted at earth normal gravity , and in reduced gravity environments of the parabolic flights, drop towers, sounding rockets and space shuttle were presented at the conference. A total of twenty-four papers were presented by participants from different parts of the world. Almost all of the papers are contained in this volume. The papers are grouped as follows: capillary and two-phase flow in microgravity, bubble dynamics in microgravity, boiling heat transfer in microgravity, droplets and bubbles in microgravity, biological system behavior in microgravity.
