Impinging jet full field flow velocity and turbulence intensity from PIV measurements in jet impingement study by T.S. O´Donovan (EUROTHERM Award winner, 2008). This image depicts the evolution of a 3.8 mm equivalent diameter bubble, during its growth and departure from a 1 mm orifice, its rise and bouncing upon a heated surface. The release height in this case is 25 mm. Donoghue, Murray & Robinson, Fluids & Heat Transfer research group, Trinity College Dublin. This image shows phase locked vorticity plots for an impinging synthetic jet with a constant stroke length of 17D at different phases within the ejection and suction stages of the cycle. It is from a paper on synthetic jet heat transfer by McGuinn, Persoons, Valiorgue, O´Donovan and Murray and is in the Proceedings of Eurotherm 2008. This image shows a nanochannel with a hot wall (left) and a cold wall (right). Heat transfer in the nanochannel is simulated using molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo methods; the research has been conducted by Nidea, Frijns, van Steenhoven and Markvoort (http://w3.wtb.tue.nl/fileadmin/wtb/wtb_energytechnology/poster_Silvia.pdf).

Announcements


We sadly inform the sad news of passing away of Professor Geoffrey Hewitt. He was an Honorary Member and a cofounder of the EUROTHERM Committee

Professor Hewitt's contributions to the field have been recognised by his election to the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the US National Academy of Engineering in addition to international awards. He was inspiring thermal scientist and he was founder of Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow Service. He left us far too soon and will be greatly missed by the international communities.
