Abstract

This review discusses the many techniques which have been shown to enhance convective heat transfer. Applications of the 13 enhancement techniques to the 6 modes of heat transfer are presented. Recent developments, both experimental and analytical, are emphasized and future trends are suggested. The rapid growth of world literature on this subject indicates that enhancement is now a major speciality area in heat transfer research and development. As energy and material shortages become more important factors in the overall cost of thermal systems, industrial utilization of enhancement will increase.
