About the Editors

Leonard L. Vasiliev is president of the NIS Association "Heat Pipes" and head of the Porous Media Laboratory, A.V. Luikov Heat and Mass Transfer Institute, National Academy of Sciences, Belarus. He obtained his first doctorate degree (Candidate of science) in 1964 in Minsk. He is currently a member of the Scientific Council of the International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer. Professor Vasiliev has authored or co-authored about 340 publications in journals and conference proceedings. He is the author and co-author of 14 books, 218 Soviet authors' certificates on invention, and 12 patents.

Sadik Kakac received his degree of Dip.-Ing (1955) from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University of Istanbul (ITU, MS degrees from MIT in mechanical (1959) and nuclear engineering (1960). He has authored or co-authored over 200 scientific papers on transient and steady-state laminar, turbulent forced convection, two-phase flow instabilities, fuel-cells modeling, micro heat transfer with sleep flow, and Micro/nano heat transfer. He is a fellow member of ASME and a recipient of the ASME heat transfer memorial award. He is a member of the scientific council and executive committee. Prof. Kakac edited and co-edited 14 volumes on thermal and fluid sciences and applications including a hand book o convective heat transfer.
