5th European Thermal Sciences Conference EUROTHERM 2008


5th European Thermal Sciences Conference EUROTHERM 2008

 

18th - 22nd May 2008, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

This conference is organized under supervision of EUROTHERM, which was formed in Brussels on 16 October 1986 following an initiative taken at the 8th International Heat Transfer Conference in San Francisco earlier that year.

 

What is EUROTHERM

The EUROTHERM Committee was formed in Brussels on 16 October 1986 following an initiative taken at the 8th International
Heat Transfer Conference in San Francisco earlier that year. The
aim of EUROTHERM is to promote and foster European
cooperation in Thermal Sciences and Heat Transfer by gathering
together scientists and engineers working in specialized areas.


The function of EUROTHERM is:

  • organization of a European Thermal Sciences Conference
    every four years
  • liaison with the EU on thermal sciences and energy related
    topics. Stimulation of participation of EU programmes through
    network function of EUROTHERM
  • contacts and cooperation between the different national
    bodies on thermal sciences
  • stimulation of young heat transfer scientists by the
    EUROTHERM Young Scientist Prizes

AIM

The aim of this Eurotherm Conference is to promote and foster European cooperation in thermal sciences and heat transfer by bringing together scientists and engineers working in specialized areas.

The conference topics include, but are not limited to:

  • natural, forced and mixed convection
  • conduction
  • radiation
  • combustion
  • thermodynamic processes
  • heat exchange systems
  • two-phase flows

INVITED SECTIONAL LECTURES

  • Avram Bar-Cohen (University of Maryland)
  • Gian Piero Celata (ENEA Casaccia, Roma)
  • Andreas Dreizler (Technische Universität Darmstadt)
  • Perumal Nithiarasu (University of Wales, Swansea)
  • Jean Taine (École Centrale Paris)
  • Graham de Vahl Davis (University of New South Wales, Sydney)
  • Martin Wendland (Universität fur Bodenkultur, Wien)

MINI-SYMPOSIA

During the conference two mini-symposium will be organised: one by prof. Peter Stephan (TU Darmstadt) on the topic of Micro- and Nano-Scale Heat Transfer and the other by prof. Hans Mueller Steinhagen (Universität Stuttgart and DLR Stuttgart) on the topic of Thermal Solar Energy.

The aim of the symposia is to provide an introduction to researchers new in the field and to stimulate discussions among the more experienced participants.

ABSTRACTS

Abstracts should be no longer than 2 pages and contain information on research rationale, methodology, results and major conclusions. One page should typically contain relevant graphs and plots.

Abstracts should be submitted electronically before 1 october 2007 through the Conference web-site: http://www.eurotherm2008.tue.nl
