Nucleate Boiling on Micro-Structured Surfaces (August 2008) - 12 MB, PDF
Mieczyslaw E. Poniewski (Director of the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology, Plock Campus, Poland) and John R. Thome (Professor of Heat and Mass Transfer at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland) have encapsulated the state-of-the-art of nucleate pool boiling, focusing on the fundamentals of enhancing heat transfer using new technologies to fabricate micro-structured surfaces. The book offers a broad survey of the available literature.

As principal investigator on 40 sponsored programs, including 19 multi-year grants from NSF, DOE, NIST, NYSERDA, and industry, and consultant to 25 industry and government organizations, Jensen has directed his research toward convective single- and two-phase heat transfer and the associated fluid flows with an emphasis on these processes in heat exchangers and using enhanced heat transfer techniques. Recent research has focused on microchannel flows and thermal management of electronic systems, solar energy, fuel cells, and sustainability. With his graduate students (32 MS, 17 PhD), he has performed both fundamental and applied research and has conducted both experimentally and numerically based research on a wide range of topics. Jensen has published over 150 archival technical papers, edited 10 volumes and 30 other assorted reports, and published an undergraduate textbook on thermal and fluids engineering. He has two patents.
Jensen has been honored as a Fellow of ASME, twice received the student-chosen Lewis T. Assini Undergraduate Teaching and Counseling Award, received the Ralph R. Teetor Award of SAE, and was awarded the 2008 RPI School of Engineering Research Excellence Award. He is active in his profession, having served or is serving on editorial boards of four international journals (Journal of Heat Transfer, Experimental Thermal and Fluid Science, Applied Thermal Engineering, and Journal of Mechanical Science and Technology), recently was named as Founding Editor-in-Chief of ASME’s newest journal, Thermal Science and Engineering Applications, led the ASME Heat Transfer Division, and was appointed as Alternate Delegate to Assembly for International Heat Transfer Conferences. He has been chair or co-chair of six international conferences (including the National Heat Transfer Conference) and has been invited to be on numerous scientific committees for other national and international conferences. He is an active reviewer for numerous international journals and conferences and funding agencies such as NSF, DOE, NASA, and NYSERDA.
