2017/06/12-16 - 9th World Conference on Experimental Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics
9th World Conference on Experimental Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics
Iguazu Falls, Brazil
12-16 June, 2017
Aims and Scope
The World Conferences on Experimental Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics have been taking place since 1988. Following successful conferences in Dubrovnik (1988, 1991), Honolulu (1993), Brussels (1997), Thessaloniki (2001), Matsushima (2005), Krakow (2009) and Lisbon (2013), the Ninth World Conference on Experimental Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics (ExHFT-9) will be held in Iguazu Falls (Foz do Iguaçu), Brazil, from 12 to 16 June, 2017. This will be the first ExHFT Conference in the southern hemisphere.
ExHFT-9 is being organized under the auspices of the Assembly of World Conferences on Experimental Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics. The goal of this conference is to provide a forum for the exposure and exchange of ideas, bringing together experimental researchers from industry and academia engaged in the areas of thermal and fluid science and engineering.
Papers on all aspects of these research areas, from fundamental and applied to novel experimental techniques and innovative applications are welcome.
Conference topics include, but are not limited to:
- Heat and Mass Transfer
- Fluid Mechanics
- Measurement Techniques and Image Processing
- Heat and Fluid Flow in Micro/Nano Scales
- Multi-Phase Flows
- Chemical Reaction and Combustion
- Interdisciplinary Areas in Heat and Fluid Flow
CALL FOR PRENOMINATIONS
THE NUSSELT-REYNOLDS PRIZE
Assembly of World Conferences on Experimental Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics, and Thermodynamics
The Nusselt-Reynolds Prize has been established by the Assembly of World Conferences to commemorate outstanding contributions by Wilhelm Nusselt and Osborne Reynolds as experimentalists, researchers, educators, and authors. As many as three prizes may be bestowed at every World Conference, one in each of the areas of heat transfer, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, or any combination of these.
The prize shall be bestowed for outstanding scientific and engineering contributions and eminent achievements in the fields of heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics through (1) experimental studies and analytical/numerical extension of the measurements, (2) development of experimental techniques, visualization techniques, and/or instrumentation, and/or (3) development of design theory (that needs experimental data) and theory based experimental correlations. These contributions should yield a deeper insight into physical phenomena involved or should yield significant technological advances. In addition to research, the awardee(s) should have made outstanding contributions to the field through teaching, design, or a combination of such activities. The prize is based on achievement through publications or through the application of the science or art.
