7th International Conference on Multiphase Flow and Heat Transfer (ICMFHT’22)
We are pleased to announce our keynote speakers for the 7th International Conference on Multiphase Flow and Heat Transfer (ICMFHT’22) :
Dr. Andrea Cioncolini
The University of Manchester, UK
I am Reader in Thermal-Hydraulics at the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering of the University of Manchester, UK.
My background is Nuclear Engineering (BSc, MSc, PhD) and Mathematics (MSc), with specialty in nuclear thermal-hydraulics and computational fluid dynamics.
My research includes experiments, physical modelling and numerical simulations in thermo-fluids and fluid-structure interactions (flow boiling and multi-phase flow; thermal-hydraulics and corrosion; micro-fluidics; fluid systems transient analysis; flow induced vibration and flexible fluid-structure interaction), and is motivated by demanding cooling applications (nuclear fission reactors, microelectronics, high-energy particle detectors), flow control and small-scale energy harvesting.
After graduating, I worked as Senior Engineer/Scientist for the nuclear vendor Westinghouse Electric in Pittsburgh-PA, USA, on transient/safety analysis of water-cooled nuclear power plants and on design/testing of small-modular water-cooled nuclear reactor systems. I successively moved to the Laboratory of Heat and Mass Transfer at EPFL (The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland), where I worked as post-doctoral researcher on macro-micro-scale two-phase flow modelling for demanding cooling applications. I joined the University of Manchester in 2013.
I am Associate Editor of the Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science (Proc. IMechE), and a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Nuclear Engineering.
Topic of Keynote: Entrained Liquid Fraction in Annular Two-Phase Flow
Dr. Xinrong Zhang
Peking University, China
Topic of Keynote: Near-Critical Fluid Flow Dynamics and Heat Transfer
Dr. Cem Sarica
University Tulsa, USA
Dr. Cem Sarica, F.H. “Mick” Merelli/Cimarex Energy Professor of Petroleum Engineering at the University of Tulsa (TU), is currently serving as the director of three industry-supported consortia at the TU: Fluid Flow, Paraffin Deposition, and Horizontal Well Artificial Lift Projects. His research interests are production engineering, multiphase flow in pipes, flow assurance, and horizontal wells. He holds BS and MS degrees in petroleum engineering from Istanbul Technical University and a Ph.D. degree in petroleum engineering from TU. He has previously served in various SPE Committees, and he is currently serving as a member of the SPE Production and Facilities Advisory Committee. He was a member of the SPE Journal Editorial Board between 1999 and 2007. He also served as Associate Editor of JERT of ASME between 1998 and 2003. He is a member of the Technical Advisory Committee of British Hydrodynamics Research Group (BHRg) Multiphase Production Conferences. He served as the Technical Program Chair of BHRg 2008 and 2012 Conferences. He is the recipient of the 2010 SPE International Production and Operations Award. He is recognized as a Distinguished Member of SPE in 2012. Cem received SPE John Franklin Carll Award and SPE Cedric K. Ferguson Certificate in 2015.
Topic of Keynote: A Comprehensive Review of Pseudo-Slug Flow
Dr. Simone Mancin
University of Padova, Italy
Simone Mancin graduated with distinction in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Padova (2005) where he also gained the PhD on Industrial Engineering (Applied Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer) (2009). He is Associate Professor at the Dept. of Management and Engineering of the University of Padova, where he teaches Applied Physics, Thermo-Fluid Dynamics, and Thermal Management of Electronic Devices. He is also Visiting Prof. at Brunel University London (UK) and Associate scientist at the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (IT).
In 2015, he founded the Nano Heat Transfer lab (NHT-lab), which is mainly focused on experimental and numerical analyses on nano-PCMs and nano-dispersions, optimized LTES, single and two-phase heat transfer in micro and nano structures, thermal management of CERN experiments and ITER, AI and additive manufacturing applied to thermal problems. At NHT, he developed a novel coating technique for surface functionalization that can be used for, among those, anti-fouling, anti-icing, enhanced heat transfer, and for medical applications. Recently, at in collaboration with Purdue University, we are exploring the next generation of optimized heat sinks for electronics thermal management via immersion cooling.
He is author and co-author of more than 175 paper scientific papers published in several peer-review International Journals and in Proceeding of National and International congresses; he acts as reviewer of several scientific international journals. He is associate editor of HEDH, Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science and Heat Transfer Research. He is also member of the Editorial board of International Journal of Thermofluids, and Heliyon.
