University of Nottingham Ningbo

Dr. Yong Ren received the B.Eng. degree from Beihang University in 2004 and the Ph.D. degrees from Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2013. His Ph.D. research focuses on centrifugal microfluidic flow and mixing with applications in cell culture and cell lysing, and the research can lead to automated biosample preparation and nucleic acid analysis for lab-on-a-chip applications. Prior to joining University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC), he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at microfluidics and soft matter group of University of Hong Kong. He has been an Assistant Professor with the Department of Mechanical, Materials, and Manufacturing Engineering at UNNC since September 2013. His research interest focuses on microscale fluid dynamics, heat and mass transfer, CFD, multiphase flow, bio-MEMS device fabrication, and functional material synthesis for energy and environmental applications. Dr. Ren is a member of ASME.

Heat and mass transfer are ubiquitous transport phenomena in many fields, from the natural environment and living organisms to the engineering process. This book focuses on the latest advances in applying fundamental heat and mass transfer theory and novel technologies for addressing a wide range of industrial problems of interest. This book will present readers with a recent analytical study, CFD modelling, and experimental investigations of heat and mass transfer topics associated with a variety of engineering disciplines including multiphase flow, nanofluids, porous media, battery thermal management, and engineering processes such as extractive distillation and arc welding. The book aims to provide new insights to understand the heat and mass transfer phenomena, serving as a platform for exchanging inspiring ideas and boosting further development of these disciplines.
