TL;DR: The Journnal of Heat Transfer (JHT) as discussed by the authors has recognized the need to prepare a set of guidelines on estimating experimental uncertainty, which were used to ensure uniformity of presenting experimental data and to raise the authors' awareness regarding the importance of giving a more precise statement about their measurement uncertainties.
Abstract: The JOURNAL OF HEAT TRANSFER (JHT) has, for some time, recognized the need to prepare a set of guidelines on estimating experimental uncertainty. This was warranted for two major reasons: to ensure uniformity of presenting experimental data, and to raise the authors' awareness regarding the importance of giving a more precise statement about their measurement uncertainties.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors examined the influence of the dynamic solid/liquid contact angle and contact angle hysteresis on the incipience superheat of highly-wetting liquids and found that variations in contact angle induced by changes in the direction and magnitude of the liquid/vapor interface velocity can substantially affect the formation of bubble embryos.
Abstract: The difficulty in predicting the boiling incipience of highly-wetting liquids has slowed the application of immersion cooling technology in the electronics industry. The present effort sheds new light on this phenomenon by examining the influence of the dynamic solid/liquid contact angle and contact angle hysteresis on the incipience superheat. The results suggest that variations in contact angle, induced by changes in the direction and magnitude of the liquid/vapor interface velocity, can substantially affect the formation of bubble embryos and may well explain the wide experimental scatter in incipience superheat values reported for highly-wetting liquids.

TL;DR: This survey, although extensive cannot include every paper; some selection is necessary, is intended to encompass the English language heat transfer papers published in 2003, including some translations of foreign language papers.
Abstract: The present paper is intended to encompass the English language heat transfer papers published in 2003, including some translations of foreign language papers. This survey, although extensive cannot include every paper; some selection is necessary. Many papers reviewed herein relate to the science of heat transfer, including numerical, analytical and experimental works. Others relate to applications where heat transfer plays a major role not only in man-made devices, but in natural systems as well. The papers are grouped into categories and then into sub-fields within these categories. We restrict ourselves to papers published in reviewed archival journals. Besides reviewing the journal articles in the body of this paper, we also mention important conferences and meetings on heat transfer and related fields, major awards presented in 2003, and books on heat transfer published during the year.

TL;DR: A review of the literature on turbine passage aerodynamics and endwall heat transfer can be found in this article, where the effects of near-endwall secondary flows on endwall cooling are discussed.
Abstract: This review addresses recent literature on turbine passage aerodynamics and endwall heat transfer; articles that describe the endwall flow and cooling problems are summarized, recent activity on improving endwall aerothermal design is discussed, improved cooling schemes are proposed, and methods for managing secondary flows to allow more effective cooling are suggested. Much attention is given to aerodynamic losses associated with secondary flows developed near the endwalls. The endwall region flowfield is influenced by the stagnation zones established as the endwall approach flow boundary layer meets the airfoil leading edges, by the curvature of the passages, by the steps and gaps on the endwall surface ahead of and within the passage, by the leakage and coolant flows introduced through the endwall surface ahead of and within the passage, by the tip leakage flows between the blades and shroud in the rotor endwall region, and by many more effects. Recent combustor redesigns have flattened the turbine inlet temperature profile and have raised the turbine inlet temperatures. This, coupled with a continued need to improve engine durability and availability, has spurred strong interest in thermal control of the turbine endwall regions. Thus, much of the literature presented herein is focused on endwall cooling and, in particular, the effects of near-endwall secondary flows on endwall cooling.

TL;DR: A review of the heat transfer literature published in 2005 can be found in this article, where the authors restrict themselves to papers published in English through a peer-review process, with selected translations from journals published in other languages.
Abstract: The present review is intended to encompass the heat transfer literature published in 2005. While of a wide-range in scope, some selection is inevitable. We restrict ourselves to papers published in English through a peer-review process, with selected translations from journals published in other languages. Papers from conference proceedings generally are not included, though the Proceeding itself may be cited in the introduction. A significant fraction of the papers reviewed herein relates to the science of heat transfer, including experimental, analytical and numerical studies. Other papers cover applications where heat transfer plays a major role, not only in man-made devices but in natural systems as well. The papers are grouped into major subject areas and then into subfields within these areas. In addition to reviewing the literature, we mention major conferences held in 2005, major awards related to heat transfer presented in 2005, and books on heat transfer published during the year.

TL;DR: In this paper, a review of the history of thermal energy storage with solid-liquid phase change has been carried out and three aspects have been the focus of this review: materials, heat transfer and applications.
Abstract: Thermal energy storage in general, and phase change materials (PCMs) in particular, have been a main topic in research for the last 20 years, but although the information is quantitatively enormous, it is also spread widely in the literature, and difficult to find. In this work, a review has been carried out of the history of thermal energy storage with solid–liquid phase change. Three aspects have been the focus of this review: materials, heat transfer and applications. The paper contains listed over 150 materials used in research as PCMs, and about 45 commercially available PCMs. The paper lists over 230 references.

TL;DR: The boundary layer equations for plane, incompressible, and steady flow are described in this paper, where the boundary layer equation for plane incompressibility is defined in terms of boundary layers.
Abstract: The boundary layer equations for plane, incompressible, and steady flow are $$\matrix{ {u{{\partial u} \over {\partial x}} + v{{\partial u} \over {\partial y}} = - {1 \over \varrho }{{\partial p} \over {\partial x}} + v{{{\partial ^2}u} \over {\partial {y^2}}},} \cr {0 = {{\partial p} \over {\partial y}},} \cr {{{\partial u} \over {\partial x}} + {{\partial v} \over {\partial y}} = 0.} \cr }$$

TL;DR: LaRonde as mentioned in this paper analyzes the conflict in Xinjiang and concludes that the Chinese continue to defeat the separatist movement through a strategy that counters Mao's seven fundamentals of revolutionary warfare, concluding that Mao, as well as the communist leaders who followed him, was also successful at waging protracted counterinsurgency.
Abstract: PROTRACED COUNTERINSURGENCY: CHINESE COIN STRATEGY IN XINJIANG by MAJ J. Scott LaRonde, USA, 95 pages. In 1949, following the conclusion of its revolutionary war against the Chinese Nationalist forces, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) peacefully occupied China’s western most province of Xinjiang. For nearly sixty years, the PLA has conducted a counterinsurgency against several, mostly Uyghur-led, separatist movements. Despite periods of significant violence, particularly in the early 1950s and again in the 1990s, the separatist forces have not gained momentum and remained at a level one insurgency. Mao ZeDeng is revered as a master insurgent and the father of Fourth Generation Warfare. Strategists in armies worldwide study his writings on revolutionary and guerilla warfare. This monograph concludes that Mao, as well as the communist leaders who followed him, was also successful at waging protracted counterinsurgency. For nearly sixty years, separatist movements in Xinjiang, Tibet, and Taiwan have all failed. This monograph analyzes the conflict in Xinjiang and concludes that the Chinese continue to defeat the separatist movement in Xinjiang through a strategy that counters Mao’s seven fundamentals of revolutionary warfare.
