Nanoparticle heat transfer and fluid flow by W. J Minkowycz( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Preface The day of nanoparticles and nanofluids has arrived, and the applications of these media are legion. Here, attention is focused on such disparate applications as biomedical, energy conversion, material properties, and fluid flow and heat transfer. The common denominator of the articles which set forth these applications here is numerical quantification, modeling, simulation, and presentation. The first chapter of this volume conveys a broad overview of nanofluid applications, while the second chapter continues the general thermofluids theme and then narrows the focus to biomedical applications. Chapters 3 and 4 deepen the biomedical emphasis. Equally reflective of current technological and societal themes is energy conversion from dispersed forms to more concentrated and utilizable forms, and these issues are treated in Chapters 5 and 6. Basic to the numerical modeling and simulation of any thermofluid process are material properties. Nanofluid properties have been shown to be less predictable and less repeatable than are those of other media that participate in fluid flow and heat transfer. Property issues for nanofluids are set forth in Chapters 6 and 7. The last three chapters each focus on a specific topic in nanofluid flow and heat transfer. Chapter 8 deals with filtration. Microchannel heat transfer has been identified as the preferred means for the thermal management of electronic equipment, and the role of nanofluids as a coolant is discussed in Chapter 9. Natural convection is conventionally regarded as a low heat-transfer coefficient form of convective heat transfer. Potential enhancement of natural convection due to nanoparticles is the focus of Chapter 10"--

Advances in numerical heat transfer by W. J Minkowycz( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Motivated by the upwelling of current interest in subjects critical to human health, [this book] presents the latest information on bioheat and biofluid flow. Like its predecessors, this volume assembles a team of renowned international researchers who cover both fundamentals and applications. It explores ingenious modeling techniques and innovative numerical simulation for solving problems in biomedical engineering. The text begins with the modeling of thermal transport by perfusion within the framework of the porous-media theory. It goes on to review other perfusion models, different forms of the bioheat equation for several thermal therapies, and thermal transport in individual blood vessels. The book then describes thermal methods of tumor detection and treatment as well as issues of blood heating and cooling during lengthy surgeries. It also discusses how the enhancement of heat conduction in tumor tissue by intruded nanoparticles improves the efficacy of thermal destruction of the tumor. The final chapters focus on whole-body thermal models, issues concerning the thermal treatment of cancer, and a case study on the thermal ablation of an enlarged prostate
