The first of nine volumes presenting the Proceedings of an All-Soviet Conference on Heat and Mass Transfer held in Minsk, B.S.S.R. in May 1964. Topics considered in the papers presented in this volume include (1) heat transfer and frictional resistance in a liquid or gas whose physical properties change appreciably with temperature and pressure; (2) heat transfer and resistance in systems (primarily tubes and channels) of different geometry; (3) unsteady state convection heat transfer; (4) hydrodynamics and heat transfer in jets; and (5) increases in the rate of convective heat transfer. 378 pp.
