Program

The organizing committees of the two co-located events, FFHMT'18 and EHST'18, have decided to allow registrants of either conference to attend sessions from both events. As a result, we encourage attendees to study the program and attend the sessions which they may find relevant/interesting.


3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Registrations




Registrants from the two conferences are permitted and encouraged to attend sessions from any of the two conferences.

The Conference will be held in Niagara Falls, Canada, at the Americana Conference Resort, Spa & Waterpark. Please click here for map of the location.

Numerical Analysis of Two Phase Flow and Heat Transfer in Condensers
Dr. Chao Zhang, University of Western Ontario, Canada


Dr. Chao Zhang is a professor of the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at The University of Western Ontario. She is a Fellow of The Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME). She received her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from University of New Brunswick in 1990 and joined University of Windsor as a faculty member in the same year. She took up her present position in 1999. She was the Executive Director of Essex County Chapter of Professional Engineers of Ontario. She served on the Board of Directors of CSME and was the Chair of Thermo-Fluids Engineering Technical Division of CSME for five years.

Dr. Zhang’s research interests are in the area of numerical simulations of turbulent, multi-phase, and reactive flows. The main field of her research is two-phase flows in condensers, turbulent reactive flows in industrial furnaces and automobile engines, and gas-solid flows in fluidized beds, powder spray systems, and pulmonary drug delivery.
