University of Navarre

Miguel Araiz Vega studied industrial engineering at the Public University of Navarre (UPNA), Spain, and completed his Ph.D. at the same university in 2018. The topic of his thesis was the modelization and development of a thermoelectric generator to harvest waste heat in domestic and industrial processes. He is a member of the Thermal and Fluids Research Group and the Smart Cities Institute of the UPNA. He completed a short research stay at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in Melbourne, Australia in 2018, and he has collaborated in many research projects related to thermoelectric generation and refrigeration, and simulation, design, and optimization of heat exchangers and thermal systems. He has published fourteen manuscripts in peer-reviewed international journals and one book chapter, and he has participated in more than twenty-five international and national conferences.

Thermal energy is present in all aspects of our lives, including when cooking, driving, or turning on the heat or air conditioning. Sometimes this thermal management is not evident, but it is essential for our comfort and lifestyle. In addition, heat transfer is vital in many industrial processes. Thermal energy analysis is a complex task that usually requires different approaches. With five sections, this book provides information on heat transfer problems and using experimental techniques and computational models to analyse them.
