John C. Chen currently holds the Carl R.Anderson Chair of Chemical Engineering at Lehigh University, where he has also served as Chairman of the Department of Chemical Engineering and as Director of the Institute of Thermo-Fluid Engineering and Science. His research encompasses both vapor-liquid and particle-gas multiphase systems., Yasunobu Fujita is currently Professor of Energy and Mechanical Engineering at Kyushu University, Japan. His research concentrates on mechanistic aspects of nucleate boiling, high density cooling, CHF of binary mixtures, and direct contact evaporation., Franz Mayinger holds the prestigious Chair of Thermodynamik at Technische Universität Munich, Germany. His research on boiling and condensation is characterized by innovative and meticulous experimental investigations which contributed to the understanding of many of the significant mechanisms., Ralph A. Nelson is a Senior Research Scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico and is considered a world leader in the development of transient two-phase computer codes for thermal-hydraulic analysis of nuclear reactor systems.
