Introduction
Research focus on heat and mass transfer in thin films. Recent research has covered the heat transfer of falling film boiling and pool boiling of refrigerants on horizontal tubes, with factors such as boiling mechanics, dryout and critical heat flux all investigated through experimental measurements and the image analysis of high-speed video.
