Newest scientific developments of the globalized world

Head of the Department of Renewable Energy, Energy Efficient Buildings and Engineering Networks of the Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical University of Oil and Gas Professor Anatolii Pavlenko, participated in the IV International Scientific Conference on Thermal and Fluids Engineering (TFEC) in Las Vegas (USA) organized by the American Society of Thermal and Fluids Engineers (ASTFE).

American and international experts from academic circles, industry and government presented over 500 full scientific papers, advanced lectures and presentations covering a wide range of topics of scientific heat engineering and engineering communities.

The purpose of the event was to disseminate information and knowledge on topical issues of thermophysics and fluids and gas engineering, both nationally and internationally. It is consistent with global joint activities in the traditional sectors of heat transfer and engineering fluids, as well as in energy, environmental sustainability, production, thermal management, etc.

The sections that worked within the framework of the conference covered a wide range of problems: combustion and fuel; aerospace applications; computational methods; cryogenics; electrical, magnetic, flow and thermal phenomena in micro and nanoscale systems; energy and sustainable development; energy storage systems; experimental methods / tools and devices in fluid engineeering and heat-and-mass transfer; multiphase flows and multiphase phenomena; mechanics of fluid and rheology of nonlinear materials and complex fluids; fuel cells; the fundamentals in fluid flow and momentum transfer; equipment and processes of solar energy; thermoeconomic analysis of power systems; turbulent flows; wind turbines aerodynamics and control.

Prof. Pavlenko presented conceptual developments of elements of the new theory of controlled energy conversion in micro-volumes of liquid and gas in sections " Fundamentals in Fluid Flow and Heat/Mass and Momentum Transfer" and "Thermoeconomic analysis of energy systems".
