You, Seung M.
Seung You joined the UT Dallas faculty in 2013 and is Professor of Mechanical Engineering. He also serves as an associate department head. Dr. You has extensive experience in thermal science. He has developed an experimental method to investigate nucleate boiling heat transfer mechanisms by measuring departing bubbles' frequency, size, and velocity. He also proposed the use of nanofluids and nanoporous structures for enhancing Critical Heat Flux, and invented a novel microporous coating that modifies the microstructure of surfaces resulting in a significant boiling and evaporation heat transfer improvement. His innovative micro/nano-scale thermal science technologies have contributed to thermal management in electronic components and energy-efficient sustainable design of thermal systems. His current research interests include:
- 3-D embedded thermal management using digital microfluidics thermal ground planes
- Portable evaporative refrigerator for vaccine delivery
- Enhancing multiple effect distillation (MED) by microporous coating
- Superhydrophilic nanoporous coating process by nucleation
- Convective heat transfer and fluid flow
- Nucleate boiling heat transfer
- Thermal management of high-heat-flux microelectronics
- Heat transfer in thermal energy systems

Flow Boiling Heat Transfer from Downward-Facing Thick Heater Block in an Inclined Channel with Plain and Microporous Coated Surfaces (Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2019-02)Flow boiling experiments were carried out with water on a 300 mm x 120 mm area and 85 mm thick downward-facing heated copper block at 1.4 bar pressure in a channel inclined 10° upwards with respect to horizontal. Heat ...
Development of a Stable Boehmite Layer on Aluminum Surfaces for Improved Pool Boiling Heat Transfer in Water (Elsevier Ltd, 2019-04-19)Oxidation layers that develop on an aluminum surface can cause changes in the surface wettability. When the aluminum surface is used as a heating surface, these changes result in inconsistencies in the nucleate boiling ...
Effect of Subcooling on Pool Boiling of Water from Sintered Copper Microporous Coating at Different Orientations The subcooling effect on pool boiling heat transfer using a copper microporous coating was experimentally studied in water for subcoolings of 10 K, 20 K, and 30 K at atmospheric pressure and compared to that of a plain ...
In many electrowetting on dielectric (EWOD) based microfluidics devices, droplet actuation speed is a crucial performance-controlling parameter. Our present study aims to characterize and study droplet speed in a typical ...
