The Conference

5th International Conference on Computational Methods for Thermal Problems, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, INDIA, July 9-11, 2018


Between 1979 and 1997 a number of meetings on computational thermal problems were organised by Professor R.W. Lewis and his colleagues.
Since then, the world energy situation has become critical and new issues are arising in the sector of energy conversion. Many of these issues are strictly related to thermal problems, and the possibility to solve these problems efficiently is very often related to the new developments in Computational Techniques. Thermal problems are also rising in new areas of research, such as bioengineering and nanotechnology, where new models and solution methods need to be developed.
The International Conference on Computational Methods for Thermal Problems aims at bringing together researchers, scientists, practitioners and students interested in this area of research in order to discuss the most recent developments and the challenges that the future holds in this field.
Technical papers are invited on any topics related to Computational Methods for Thermal Problems. Proposals are also invited for mini-symposia organised by individual researchers (composed of at least 5 papers).
A special award for the best post-graduate student presentation will be awarded to honour the outstanding contributions and service of Professor Roland W. Lewis to computational heat transfer.
