The keynote speakers for the 7th International Conference on Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow (HTFF'20) will be announced shortly! Thank you for your patience.



Dr. Dongsheng Wen

Dr. Dongsheng Wen
University of Leeds, UK
Keynote Speaker

Topic of Keynote: Multi-phase flow and heat transfer in aerospace engineering


Dr. Cees van der Geld

Dr. Cees van der Geld
Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands
Keynote Speaker

Cees van der Geld is a full professor of Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, where he is also scientific director of the post-masters designers course Process and Product Design. Cees is Editor-in-Chief of Experimental Thermal and Fluid Science and President of the Assembly of World Conferences on Experimental Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics. His main field of research is interfaces with mass transfer, in particular those occurring in phase transitional flows, in boiling, condensation and steam injection. Focal points have been quantification of added mass forces on deforming bubbles, theoretical and experimental determination of drag and lift forces during bubble detachment and bubble/particle motion in turbulent flows. In addition, drop drainage and dropwise condensation in compact heat exchangers were studied.

Topic of Keynote: Special boiling phenomena


Dr. Hui Hu

Dr. Hui Hu
Iowa State University, USA
Keynote Speaker

Dr. Hui Hu is the Martin C. Jischke Professor and Associate Dept. Chair of Aerospace Engineering at Iowa State University. His recent research interests include advanced laser diagnostics, aircraft icing physics and anti-/de-icing technology; heat transfer and thermal management of gas turbines; wind turbine aeromechanics; rotorcraft aerodynamics; bio-inspired engineering for unmanned-aerial-systems (UAS); wind engineering and Fluid-Structure Interactions (FSI) of built structures in violent wind storms (i.e., tornadoes, downbursts and snow/rain storms). Dr. Hu is an ASME Fellow and AIAA Associate Fellow. He is serving as an editor of Experimental Thermal Fluid Science, Elsevier and an associate editor of ASME Journal of Fluid Engineering. Dr. Hu received several prestigious awards in recent years, including 2006 NSF-CAREER Award, 2007 Best Paper in Fluid Mechanics Award (Measurement Science and Technology, IOP Publishing), 2009 AIAA Best Paper Award in Applied Aerodynamics, 2012 Mid-Career Achievement in Research Award of Iowa State University, 2013 AIAA Best Paper Award in Ground Testing Technology, 2014 Renewable Energy Impact Award of Iowa Energy Center, and 2016 Outstanding Faculty Mentor Award of Iowa State University.
