Description

Illustrates Calculations Using Machine and Technological Processes

The conjugate heat transfer (CHT) problem addresses the thermal interaction between a body and fluid flowing over or through it. This is an essential consideration in nature and different areas of engineering, including mechanics, aerospace, nuclear engineering, biology, and meteorology. Advanced conjugate modeling of the heat transfer process is now used extensively in a wide range of applications.

Conjugate Problems in Convective Heat Transfer addresses the latest theory, methods, and applications associated with both analytical and numerical methods of solution CHT problems and their exact and approximate solutions. It demonstrates how the true value of a CHT solution is derived by applying these solutions to contemporary engineering design analysis. Assembling cutting-edge information on modern modeling from more than 200 publications, this book presents more than 100 example applications in thermal treatment materials, machinery operation, and technological processes. Creating a practical review of current CHT development, the author includes methods associated with estimating heat transfer, particularly that from arbitrary non-isothermal surfaces in both laminar and turbulent flows.

Harnesses the Modeling Power of CHT

Unique in its consistent compilation and application of current knowledge, this book presents advanced CHT analysis as a powerful tool for modeling various device operations and technological processes, from relatively simple procedures to complex multistage, nonlinear processes.

About the Author

Abram S. Dorfman, Ph.D., graduated from the Moscow Institute of Aviation in 1946, as an Engineer of Aviation Technology. From 1946 to 1947, he worked in the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (ZIAM) in Moscow. From 1947 to 1990, Dr. Dorfman studied fluid mechanics and heat transfer at the Institute of Thermophysics of the Ukrainian Academy of Science in Kiev, first as a junior scientist from 1947 to 1959, then as a senior scientist from 1959 to 1978, and finally as a leading scientist from 1978 to 1990. He earned a Ph.D. with a thesis titled "Theoretical and Experimental Investigation of Supersonic Flows in Nozzles" in 1952. In 1978, he received a Doctor of Science degree, which was the highest scientific degree in the Soviet Union, with a thesis and a book, Heat Transfer in Flows around the Nonisothermal Bodies. From 1978 to 1990, Dr. Dorfman was associate editor of Promyshlennaya Teploteknika, and he was also an adviser to graduate students for many years. In 1990, he emigrated to the United States, where he continues his research as a visiting professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor (since 1996). During this period, he has published several papers in leading American journals. Dr. Dorfman has published more than 130 papers and two books in fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Since 1965, he has been systematically studying conjugate heat transfer.
