The World Conferences on Experimental Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics are being organized under the auspices of the Assembly of World Conferences on Experimental Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics. The conferences have been taking place since 1988. Following successful conferences in Dubrovnik (1988, 1991), Honolulu (1993), Brussels (1997), Thessaloniki (2001), Matsushima (2005), Krakow (2009), Lisbon (2013) and Iguazu Falls (2017), where the Tenth World Conference on Experimental Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics (ExHFT-10) was held from 11 to 15 June, 2017. This has been the first ExHFT Conference in the southern hemisphere.
The goal of each ExHFT 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:
In memoriam George Yadigaroglu (by Gian Piero Celata)
George Yadigaroglu passed away on October 25, 2018. He has been one of the leading personalities in the field of two-phase flow and heat transfer. He is also renowned to have established in ETH Zurich the Short Course in Multiphase Flow, which has been attended by a number of young scientists and PhD students to learn the fundamentals of these disciplines.
Born in 1939 in Istanbul, prof. Yadigaroglu obtained Diploma in Mechanical Engineering at Ecole Polytech. Federal Lausanne, Switzerland in 1962, and PhD at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1970. He taught at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, at University of California, Berkeley, and got a chair of professor in Mechanical Engineering at Swiss Federal Institute Technology (ETH), Zurich, since 1982. He was head of nuclear regulatory service of Greek Atomic Energy Commission, and of thermal-hydraulics laboratory Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland. He was consultant of various organizations in United States and Europe.
