General Information

 

This conference series is conceived to promote the growth and exchange of scientific information on thermal engineering theory and applications. The International Conference on Thermal Engineering provides a forum for interaction among theoreticians, numerical modeler and experimentalist and further serves to foster cross-disciplinary cooperation. It is held every year and a half, and rotates among countries in the Middle-East, North Africa and the Mediterranean Basin. The 1st International Conference on Thermal Engineering was held in Beirut, Lebanon in May 2004 under the patronage of his Excellency Emile Lahoud the President of Lebanon. A total 80 papers and keynote lectures were presented. A special issue of the prestigious Journal of Applied Mechanics (Transactions of ASME) devoted to selected peer reviewed papers from the 1st ICTEA appeared in January 2006. The city of Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates played host to the Conference the same month, which was held under the high patronage of his Excellency Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan. It saw an increased number of attendees with the presentation of 127 papers. The 3rd ICTEA took place in Amman Jordan in May 2007 under the patronage of the Prime Minister of Jordan, his Excellency, Dr. Ma'roof al Bakheit with 150 papers presented.

 

The 4th ICTEA was held in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates on the campus of the Petroleum Institute in January 2009 comprises 177 papers with participation spread geographically further a field that ever before. The thermal engineering topics covered in the technical program of the 4th ICTEA range from double diffusive convection to thermodiffusion, energy and energy analysis methods, biological heat transfer, numerical methods in fluid flow and heat transfer, porous media, enhanced oil recovery, waste management and waste disposal, microgravity sciences and processes, combustion, multi-phase flow and heat transfer, melting and solidification, internal flow and heat transfer, new and renewable energy technologies, environmental engineering, heat transfer with non-Newtonian fluids, non-Newtonian fluid flow and heat transfer and polymer processing science and technology.

 

Scope

 

The conference focuses on emerging research trends in thermal energy. The conference offers the opportunity to share research results and discuss new technologies, market information and consumer education programs.  Both stand-up presentations and posters will be considered.  Papers are solicited in all areas of thermal energy and its applications.
