Imaging in Transport Processes


The 52 papers in this volume present approaches employed by laboratories around the world to make visible some very complex, multivariable and multi-dimensional problems in engineering and medicine. These range from simple tracer techniques through thermography, optical visualization, infrared and ultrasound techniques to highly-sophisticated 3-D tomographic imaging modalities such as optical CT, cine-CT, MRI, PET and others. The problems range from single phase natural convection to two-phase flows and interfacial transport, phase change and combustion, and metabolic transport in physiological, particularly human, systems.
