It is well believed that nowadays in our global society the energy used for cooling is much higher than for heating. Therefore, efficient cooling and heat transfer enhancement have become ever important.

Heat Transfer Enhancement focuses on frontier fundamental and applied researches in heat and mass transfer with combinations of experimental and numerical modelling.

Also the state-of-the-art technologies such as nanofluids heat transfer, microchannel boiling & condensation, phase change cooling, and high efficient heat pipes, as well as innovative nature inspired solutions of heat transfer enhancement.

The fundamental studies are directly related to industrial applications such as in gas turbine blade and aerofoil cooling, oil/gear box cooling, power electronics cooling, and also in optimal designs of power machines and heat exchangers in the variety of energy systems such as power station, nuclear power reactors, and engines.
