This book focuses on the use of nanotechnology in several fields of engineering. Among others, the reader will find valuable information as to how nanotechnology can aid in extending the life of component materials exposed to corrosive atmospheres, in thermal fluid energy conversion processes, anti-reflection coatings on photovoltaic cells to yield enhanced output from solar cells, in connection with friction and wear reduction in automobiles, and buoyancy suppression in free convective heat transfer. Moreover, this unique resource presents the latest research on nanoscale transport phenomena and concludes with a look at likely future trends.
Viswanatha SHARMA Korada is working as a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS since 2014. He joined the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Hyderabad (JNTUH), India in 1989 as a lecturer and holds the position of Professor from 2006. He has published numerous peer reviewed articles in journals dealing with thermal fluid problems having applications in the cooling of electronic components, condensation in the presence of air, nucleate boiling heat transfer, solar thermal energy conversion, flow and heat transfer in porous medium, single phase and two phase heat transfer. He has co-authored a book on "Energy Conservation and Management".Nor Hisham B Hamid received his BSc degree in Electrical Electronics Engineering from the University of Rochester, New York, USA, and MSc degree in Manufacturing System Engineering from the University of Warwick, UK, in 1993 and 1994, respectively. He received his PhD degree in Electronics Engineering from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland in 2006. From 1994 to 1999, he worked in Motorola KL, Malaysia as senior product/failure analysis engineer. In 1999, he joined Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Malaysia where he is presently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and Director for Nanotechnology Mission Oriented Research, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS. His research interests are in Nano-Devices Modeling, Fault-Tolerant Architectures, MEMS, Microfluidic Lab-On-Chip, Reliability and Testing of Sensors, MEMS, and Microfluidics Systems.
