Heat transfer enhancement, which is often also referred to as augmentation or intensification, has evolved into an important component of thermal science and engineering. The accumulated literature in enhanced heat and mass transfer includes thousands of references, and it continues to grow. To give an overview of the current state of this important technology, representative developments over the past ten years in each category of enhancement techniques are cited and commented on. The discussion is divided into the literature, passive enhancement techniques, active enhancement techniques, and compound enhancement techniques.
