About the book

It is essential to understand the mechanisms of heat transfer that are involved in every activity including conduction, convection, phase-change and radiation. Furthermore, when designing heat-exchangers it is necessary to start with a theoretical approach, modeling the behaviour of the system, and it is vital to check the results obtained with a prototype and an experimental setup.

This book intends to provide the reader with an innovative perspective of fundamentals of heat transfer, recent works that develop a novel approach to understanding such a topic. It also tries to give an overview of different techniques for heat exchangers design, prototyping and it aims to show several applications where heat transfer is a key element of the whole process. Fields like renewable energies, waste-heat recovery, refrigeration systems, etc. Finally, this book plans to include a section with any educational resource connected with heat transfer that would be helpful to share, such as, workshop examples, laboratory setups.

About the editor

Miguel Araiz

Universidad Pública de Navarra

Miguel Araiz studied Industrial Engineering at the Public University of Navarre and he finished his PhD in 2018 at the same institution. His thesis was about the modelization and experimental development of a thermoelectric generator system for waste-heat recovery. Since 2015 he works in the Thermal and Fluids Engineering Research Group of the Public University of Navarra and he is member of the Institute of Smart Cities. He has collaborated in several research projects related to thermoelectric generation and refrigeration, thermal simulation and optimization of heat exchangers, resulting in 9 papers in scientific journals and 15 contributions in national and international conferences. He also teaches at the Engineering Department of the Public University of Navarra in subjects related to thermodynamics, heat transfer or cooling technology.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
