July - August  2020


The summertime pause has come back. Although it sounds a bit strange talking about a pause after the past months of lock-down, I think this break could be a very useful time to reset and restore, so that we can restart in September with renewed strength. On the 28th of September, we are going to hold the virtual event "2020 UIT Seminar on Heat Transfer", a unique opportunity to meet each other also this year. On that occasion, we will award the UIT 2020 Prize for the best Master Thesis in Thermo-FluidDynamics and, on the same day, we will also have our plenary Assembly.

The virtual event “2020 UIT Seminar on Heat Transfer” will be held on 28th September 2020. During that event, the UIT 2020 prize will be awarded for the best degree thesis in Thermo-FluidDynamics.
On the same day, the plenary UIT Assembly will be held with remote participation. Formal communication will be sent in due time.

37th UIT Heat Transfer Conference - Proceedings
Selected papers from the 37th UIT Heat Transfer Conference (Padova, 2019) have been sent to IOP Publishing after the review process.
The volume, which contains 60 papers, is presently under production.

Suggested reading
The summer season is an ideal time for good reading...
Here we suggest the first English edition of the work by Sadi Carnot, Reflections on the motive power of heat (1897), accompanied by An account of Carnot's theory by Lord Kelvin.
