Description: The aim of the two-set series is to present a very detailed and up-to-datereference for researchers and practicing engineers in the fields of mechanical,refrigeration, chemical, nuclear and electronics engineering on the importanttopic of two-phase heat transfer and two-phase flow. The scope of the first setof 4 volumes presents the fundamentals of the two-phase flows and heat transfermechanisms, and describes in detail the most important prediction methods, whilethe scope of the second set of 4 volumes presents numerous special topics andnumerous applications, also including numerical simulation methods.Practicingengineers will find extensive coverage to applications involving:multi-microchannel evaporator cold plates for electronics cooling, boiling onenhanced tubes and tube bundles, flow pattern based methods for predictingboiling and condensation inside horizontal tubes, pressure drop methods forsingularies (U-bends and contractions), boiling in multiport tubes, and boilingand condensation in plate heat exchangers. All of these chapters include thelatest methods for predicting not only local heat transfer coefficients but alsopressure drops.Professors and students will find this 'Encyclopediaa ofTwo-Phase Heat Transfer and Flow' particularly exciting, as it contains authoredbooks and thorough state-of-the-art reviews on many basic and special topics,such as numerical modeling of two-phase heat tranfser and adiabatic bubbly andslug flows, the unified annular flow boiling model, flow pattern maps,condensation and boiling theories, new emerging topics, etc.
