The 1Olst Winter Annual Meeting of the ASME provided lectures and discussions on heat transfer in 19 sessions or symposia. Application areas like frost and ice formation, arctic heat transfer, OTEC systems, MHD and fusion reactors, and nuclear waste disposal were covered. S. P. Kezios, the luncheon speaker, discussed “Perspectives in Heat Transfer-Highlights in the Development of ASME Heat Transfer Division.” J. H. Lienhard received the Heat Transfer Memorial Award. The papers presented at the con- ference are available as preprints or in book form at ASME Headquarters. Many of them will also be published in the Journal of Heat Transfer. The 27th Heat Transfer and Fluid Mechanics Institute was held during 23-25 June 1980 at the University of California. Proceedings of the conference, which presented several papers on heat transfer, are available through the University of Southern California. The Annual Winter Meeting of the American Society for Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) was held on 3-7 February 1980 in Los Angeles and the ASHRAE Annual Meeting on 22-26 June 1980 at Denver, Colorado. Many of the papers presented dealt with heat transfer problems. They are available as preprints or in the conference proceedings through ASHRAE Headquarters. The Sixth National Heat and Mass Transfer Conference in the USSR was held at Minsk, 11-13 September 1980. Information on the proceedings of the conference can be obtained at the Luikov Heat and Mass Transfer Institute, Minsk, USSR. A joint U.S./Japan Heat Transfer Seminar was held 29 September-2 October 1980 in Tokyo, Japan sponsored by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and the National Science Foundation. Thirteen U.S. delegates attended and about twice that number of Japanese delegates. T. Mizushina and W. Aung discussed the present status of heat transfer research in Japan and in the United States, respectively. The subsequent papers dealt with basic heat transfer phenomena, and with applications like heat storage, heat recovery, and non-conventional energy. Three sessions on heat transfer were included in the program of the 25th Annual International Gas Turbine Conference of the Gas Turbine Division of the ASME. The keynote paper was presented by R. W. Graham on the subject “The Impact of New Instrumentation on Advanced Turbine Research.” Papers are again available either as preprints or in book form at ASME Headquarters. A number of books dealing with heat transfer or including heat transfer topics have appeared on the market. They are listed in the bibliographic portion of this review. The following highlights illuminate developments in heat transfer research during 1980. The heat conduction literature was dominated by
