Flow visualisation from PIV testing, showing vortex rollup in jet impingement study by T.S. O´Donovan (EUROTHERM Award winner, 2008). 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 shows Nusselt number distributions in the entrance region of a horizontal pipe and is from Grassi and Testi in Proceedings of Eurotherm 2008  Developing flow of FC-72 in a uniformly heated horizontal cylindrical pipe was studied in the regime of transitional mixed convection. Heat transfer coefficients were measured at 6 cross sections along the heated length, with 60 azimuthal positions being monitored at each section. A significantly different thermo-fluid-dynamic behaviour was observed between top and bottom of the pipe.  This image shows the surface temperature distribution on an electrically heated foil subject to jet impingement with enhanced swirl. It is from a paper by Kinsella, Donnelly, O´Donovan and Murray and is in the Proceedings of EUROTHERM 2008.







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.
