Thermal engineering has been an indispensable technology in various industrial applications. Manufacturing and design of modern equipment increasingly require a good understanding of transport phenomena in all aspects to enhance the performance and the efficient use of energy as well as to cope with a variety of technical, otherwise unmanageable, difficulties. These needs spur the integration of knowledge developed in each branch of thermal engineering. It is therefore evident that transfer and semination of both academic and practical researches from diverse disciplines should be fostered and encouraged.
These two volumes contain the texts of 19 keynote papers and 235 general papers, presented at the Sixth International Symposium on Transport Phenomena in Thermal Engineering, Seoul, Korea, May 9-13, 1993. The topics covered in these volumes are natural convection; forced and mixed convection; radiation; turbulent heat transfer; melting and solidification; boiling and condensation; refrigeration and refrigerant boiling; two-phase flows; heat transfer in particulate flows; combustion and reacting flows; porous media; oscillating heat transfer and instability; heat exchangers; heat pipes and heat transfer augmentation; fluidized bed; heat transfer in material processing, electronic equipments, vehicle components, and rotating flows; jet flow and cooling; fluid flow and measurement; image processing; and other specialized topics in thermal engineering. It is envisioned that these edited volumes will contribute to the advancement of technologies in thermal engineering and a cross fertilization of ideas from diverse disciplines.
