The ASME - ZSITS International Thermal Science Seminar (ITSS) is an outgrowth of collaboration between organizers that began in 1985. They became acquainted in Dubrovnik at the International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer Symposium. After the Symposium, they met in Ljubljana. Slovenia became an independent nation in 1991.
The ITSS was set up to confirm that thermal science is still of vital importance in this complex world. In some circles, thermal science, particularly heat transfer, is considered "mature". The present volume indicates that, if anything, thermal science is still on the upswing of the classical S-shaped curve. New knowledge is constantly being generated and applied to problems ranging from absorption refrigeration systems to zeotropic mixture phase change.
The ITSS comes at a time when electronic proceedings and virtual meetings are becoming the norm. The whole technical publishing situation is very fluid. We have elected to have an actual meeting with paper proceedings - prepared before the meeting. To defer to the new situation a disk containing all the material in the volume is also available. The success of this undertaking is tested by approximately 80 papers submitted from 30 countries. We have further specified the Standard Nomenclature recently adopted by the major worldwide thermal science journals.
Many papers are concerned with experimental resolution of thermal science problems. Hence it is appropriate and in keeping with our view that the craft of experimentation must be maintained and selected papers on experimental studies will be published in a special issue of the Experimental Thermal and Fluid Science journal.
We wish to thank the keynote lecturers and the participants for their invaluable written and oral contributions to the ITSS. We appreciate the sponsorship of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Association of Mechanical Engineers and Technicians of Slovenia (ZSITS), the International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer (ICHMT) and the International Institute of Refrigeration, Commission B1 (IIR/B1). Contributing financially to the organization and the operation of the ITSS were the:
Ministry of Science and Technology of the Republic of Slovenia
Danfoss Compressors d.d., Crnomelj, Slovenia
Gorenje d.d., Velenje, Slovenia
Krka, Pharmaceutical Industry d.d., Novo mesto, Slovenia
Nuclear Power Plant Krsko, Slovenia
Petrol, Slovene Oil Company d.d., Ljubljana, Slovenia
Trimo d.d., Trebnje, Slovenia
Laboratory for Thermal Technology, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia.
We thank the Advisory Committee, Organizing Committee and Honorable Committee for assistance in preparing and carrying out the ITSS.
Thanks the publisher for the timely preparation of these proceedings.
Volume 2 of The Proceedings contains all abstracts with addresses and e-mails of the authors, participated at The ASME - ZSITS International Thermal Science Seminar. Some full papers, which were presented at the ITSS, but were not published in The Proceedings, are also included in Volume 2.
