ABSTRACT

The science and art of heat and mass transfer enhancement, or augmentation, or intensification, has evolved into an important component of varied aspects of thermal science and engineering. The accumulated literature in enhanced heat and mass transfer includes thousands of references, and it continues to grow. This poses a challenge for the dissemination of appropriate design and application information. To give an overview of the current state of this important technology, representative developments over the past several years in each category of enhancement techniques are cited and commented on. The discussion is divided into the literature dealing with passive enhancement techniques, active enhancement techniques, and compound enhancement techniques.
