Book Description

28 May 2014 Developments in Heat Transfer
Due to the requirement for enhanced cooling technologies on modern gas turbine engines, advanced research and development has had to take place in field of thermal engineering. Among the gas turbine cooling technologies, impingement jet cooling is one of the most effective in terms of cooling effectiveness, manufacturability and cost. The chapters contained in this book describe research on state-of-the-art and advanced cooling technologies that have been developed, or that are being researched, with a variety of approaches from theoretical, experimental, and CFD studies. The authors of the chapters have been selected from some of the most active researchers and scientists on the subject. This is the first to book published on the topics of gas turbines and heat transfer to focus on impingement cooling alone.

About the Author

Bengt Sunden received his M.S. in 1973, Ph.D. in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics in 1979, and docent in applied thermodynamics and fluid mechanics in 1980, all from Chalmers Universities of Technology, Goteborg, Sweden. He became Professor of Heat Transfer in 1992 at Lund University. Since 1995 he serves as the head of the Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University, Sweden. His research topics are enhancement of heat transfer in compact heat exchangers, computational methods of convective flow and heat transfer in complex narrow geometries, combustion-related heat transfer including thermal radiation, gas turbine heat transfer (impinging jets, film cooling, ribbed ducts), evaporation and condensation in plate heat exchangers, thermal imaging techniques, PIV, and multiscale and multiphysics transport phenomena in fuel cells. He has published more than 500 journal papers, books, and proceedings. He has also delivered many keynote and invited lectures. He has been editor of 25 books published by international publishing houses and author of two textbooks (one in Swedish, one in English). He is involved in referee tasks for more than 40 international journals and has been active in several international and organizing committees and boards. He is also editor-in-chief for a book series, Developments in Heat Transfer (also published by WIT Press). In addition, he is active editor for four journals. He is a fellow of the ASME and a 2011 recipient of the ASME Heat Transfer Memorial Award.
