Heat and mass transfer can be encountered in many applications ranging from design and optimization of traditional engineering systems, such as heat exchangers, turbine, electronic cooling, heat pipes, and food processing equipment, to emerging technologies in sustainable energy, biological systems, security, information technology and nanotechnology. While some of these examples aim at transferring large quantities of heat over small temperature differences, others involve heat and mass transfer as an inevitable consequence rather than an intended design feature of the process. In each of these cases, heat and mass transfer has a profound impact on system performance, and must be accounted for in order to achieve the system design objectives in the most efficient manner.
