PCTFE Workshop 2023 in Hawaii

Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
December 3–5, 2023


This workshop  is designed to discuss about how the thermo-fluid sciences and technologies should look like in next couple of decades up to 2050 and what we will tackle as the experts in the community. The experts are invited to provide their talk about their advancements and challenges. We will have five sets of sessions that include technical talks (5) followed by a panel discussion each. These will be the essential elements of technologies necessitated today and tomorrow. For example, strategical method of thermal design, energy efficient and inexpensive heat recovery, system optimization of significantly large amount of thermal parameters, technology that allows super vertical/lateral integration of electronics, removal of an ultra-high heat flux, intelligent thermal materials, and etc. will be the part of the desired technologies.


Topics (Keywords)

1. Electronics

Power electronics, Electronic equipment, Thermal simulation, Thermal measurements, Thermal impedance, Cauer Thermal Network, High heat flux, High temperature

2. Fluidics, Thermodynamics

Liquid film, Short-wave instability, Loop heat pipe, Boiling in porous media, Thermal energy harvesting, Thermodynamics, Non-equilibrium electron gas, Analogous modeling

3. Machine learning (ML), design methods

Quantification of human activities, vectorization, Sparse identification, Data assimilation, Problem co-creating, Technology circulation model

4. Multiphase, convection

Low-filling heat pipe, 2D Rib, Oscillatory flow, PIV, Chevron fin, boiling heat transfer, SiC inverter cooling, Long life coolant, immersion cooling, critical heat flux, porous material

5. Single-phase, heat conduction

Lotus-type heat sink, Corrugated porous Fin, Breathing phenomenon, Random network structure, Alternative cooling, Elastocaloric effect, conduction with fan cooling, anisotropic materials



In discussion of our future, two (2) talks from key technological aspects are scheduled in the first session of Day 2 and Day 3. They may be in touch with the innovations, evolutions, and challenges in the field by a view from the four-dimensional (spatial plus time) scope. Panel discussions immediately following the sessions may include exchanging the thoughts extended from these keynote presentations.
