Talk Abstract

The talk will emphasize on methods to enhance the heat transfer by using longitudinal vortices. It will also cover the basics of computational studies of velocity, temperature fields together with the pressure drop and heat transfer characteristics of heat exchange surfaces with vortex generators.
