Dr. Delhaye's Web Site

Dr. Delhaye held several positions at CEA/Grenoble, a research center of the French Atomic Energy Commission.  He was appointed Head of the Industrial Thermal-hydraulics Laboratories Grenoble, and then Director of Research.  In addition, Dr. Delhaye was for many years Professor at Ecole Centrale, Paris, one of the most famous schools of engineering in France, and at the French National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology.  He was also Adjunct Professor at the School of Nuclear Engineering, Purdue University. He has been elected an ANS and ASME Fellow.

In addition to his academic and research activities, Dr. Delhaye is Co-Founder and Co-Editor of Multiphase Science and Technology, (a quarterly published by Begell House) and Past-President of the Assembly for the International Heat Transfer Conferences. 

He is a member of several Editorial Advisory Boards of international journals among which the International Journal of Multiphase Flow, the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer and International Communications in Heat and Mass Transfer. 

Dr. Delhaye has lectured in 36 different countries and served as an international expert in Venezuela, the Netherlands, Argentina, USA and for the European Union. 

He is the author, co-author or co-editor of 13 books, and the author or co-author of more than 80 refereed articles. 

A laureate of the French Academy of Science in 1971, Dr. Delhaye received several awards among which the 1988 Grand Prize of the French Society for Hydraulic Engineering and the 2002 Technical Achievement Award of the Thermal Hydraulic Division of the American Nuclear Society.

Education

Diploma of Engineering, School of Hydraulic Engineering, Grenoble National Polytechnic Institute, 1964
Doctor of Science, Grenoble University, 1970 

Research interests

Dr. Delhaye's research interests have covered a wide area in two-phase flow and heat transfer including analytical formulation, modeling, and measuring techniques.  His last research activities mainly concerned forced convective subcooled boiling, single phase forced convection in narrow rectangular channels and gas-lift systems for reprocessing plants.
