Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2019 International Conference on Boilers and Heat Exchangers (ICBHE2019) will be held in Hangzhou, China from November 1 to 4, 2019. ICBHE2019 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry around the world to discuss the latest progress and developments in the fields of boilers and heat exchangers. ICBHE2019 intends to be an international platform for knowledge sharing as well as creating a favorable atmosphere for the initiation of collaborations.

This event will include contributions by renowned plenary and invited speakers, oral presentations, poster sessions, and a technical exhibition that relates to the topics dealt with in the Scientific Program. The scope of the conference includes, but is not limited to, boilers, heat exchangers, energy and the environment, and measuring techniques.

In-depth understanding and analysis of turbulent convection heat transfer of supercritical water under semicircular heating conditions play a major role in system design and security. The inaccurate numerical results on simulating the buoyancy effect under deterioration heat transfer cases are partly attributed to the invalidity of the turbulent model. An improved turbulence model, which is validated suitable to three-dimensional model, is adopted in the present paper to numerical simulated flow and heat transfer in a vertical tube under semicircular heating condition. Heat transfer deterioration phenomenon occurs under semicircular heating condition, while the degree of deterioration is weakened due to the influence of variable physical properties and buoyancy effect. The velocity profile is distorted into “M-shape” in the heating side and present parabolic distribution in the adiabatic side, leading to different deterioration mechanisms under semicircular heating condition compared with uniform heating. The larger density difference between the heating side and the adiabatic side increases the shear stress production of turbulent kinetic energy; turbulent development is much faster recovery than the phenomenon in uniform heating condition. The results show that the semicircular heating condition can effectively alleviate the degree of heat transfer deterioration in a vertical tube. Full article
