The perfection of numerical modalities is an ongoing process. New results of both fundamental and applied importance are disseminated by technical journals which focus on topics in numerical heat transfer and fluid flow. To be truly useful to both present and future workers in the field, this prodigious outpouring of new information needs to be brought together and put into a more global perspective. That need provides the motivation for the establishment of this new serial publication, Advances in Numerical Heat Transfer. With contributions from the leading experts, this first volume in the series presents in-depth perspectives on several fundamental methodology issues in numerical heat transfer and fluid flow and identifies certain currently areas of active application. Among the fundamental issues, many facets of the finite-volume approach are presented both in conjunction with finite-element methods and the more common energy balance analysis. In the applications arena, the latest developments in turbulence modeling are presented, and current approaches to inverse problems and to phase change problems are conveyed.
