This volume contains lectures and papers presented at the Korea-U.S. Joint Heat Transfer Seminar held in Seoul, Korea, October 16-22, 1986. The theme of the seminar was heat transfer in thermal engineering and high technology systems. Heat transfer has been an important area in many industry applications. It will continue to play a vital role as modern equipment needs to be designed in a more compact, strong, durable, and heat-resistant way without compromising the overall performance. Thermal limits often impose a design limit on heat exchangers, micro-electronic equipments, power plants, propulsion systems, and many other industry systems. The need to manufacture high-temperature, high-performance materials for aerospace and combustion systems, to develop improved cooling technology for semiconductor devices, to increase thermal efficiency of power systems, and to manage and conserve energy more efficiently, to name a few examples, will continue to spur added interest in heat transfer.
