Despite the number of global engineering challenges that have been identified for the 21st century, this article focuses only on those challenges that are primarily germane to thermal engineering. Some specific challenges that have been identified include energy conservation and efficiency of mechanical equipment, energy conservation / thermal management in buildings, development of sustainable energy generation, and advancement of thermal management technologies from nano- to macro-scale… Expand
