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. Flow visualisation from PIV testing, showing vortex rollup in jet impingement study by T.S. O´Donovan (EUROTHERM Award winner, 2008). This is an image of an air bubble injected into water from a 1 mm diameter orifice at a rate of 100 ml/min. This image is captured prior to the bubbles departure from the orifice. Donoghue, Murray & Robinson, Fluids & Heat Transfer research group, Trinity College Dublin. 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).







Welcome to the Eurotherm Committee Web site.
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 specialised areas.


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.
