New Editors Named for International Cryogenics Monograph Series

The Springer publishing company recently named Dr. Sangkwon Jeong and Dr. John Weisend II (CSA chairman) as new editors for its International Cryogenics Monograph Series. The ICMS series was first established in the early 1960s and provides a forum for active researchers to report on both past developments and present work in cryogenic science and engineering. Jeong is at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology in South Korea; Weisend works at the European Spallation Source ERIC.

Founding editors of the Springer series included professors Klaus Timmerhaus and Kurt Mendelssohn, who created the publication to reach and then teach the next generation with books written by experts in cryogenics. Evidence of the founders’ success, according to Springer, lies in the fact that the series continues some 50 years later and has featured titles now viewed as classics in the field. Such publications have helped young scientists initiate programs and are valuable references for more established researchers, the publisher says.

Springer emphasizes that new ideas and proposals are welcomed by the entire editorial team: professor Sangkwon Jeong, Dr. John Weisend and Tom Spicer , Springer’s executive editor.

Recent and Forthcoming Titles in the International Cryogenics Monograph Series

Thermodynamic Properties of Cryogenic Fluids
—Leachman, J., Jacobsen, R.T., Lemmon, E., Penoncello, S. (2017)
—ISBN 9783319578330
This update to a classic reference text provides practicing engineers and scientists with accurate thermophysical property data for cryogenic fluids. The equations for fifteen important cryogenic fluids are presented in a basic format, accompanied by pressure-enthalpy and temperature-entropy charts and tables of thermodynamic properties.

Cryostat Design: Case Studies, Principles and Engineering
—Weisend II, J. G. (Ed.) (2016)
—ISBN 9783319311487
This book enables the reader to learn the fundamental and applied aspects of practical cryostat design by examining previous design choices and resulting cryostat performance. Through a series of extended case studies the book presents an overview of existing cryostat design covering a wide range of cryostat types and applications, including the magnet cryostats that comprise the majority of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, space-borne cryostats containing sensors operating below 1 K, and large cryogenic liquid storage vessels.

Cryogenic Safety: A Guide to Best Practice in the Lab and Workplace
—Peterson, T., Weisend II, J. G., Jurns, J., Woods, S.
—Planned for 2019
This book describes the current state of the art in cryogenic safety best practice, helping the reader to work with cryogenic systems and materials safely. It brings together information from previous texts, industrial and laboratory safety policies, and recent research papers. Case studies, example problems, and an extensive list of references are included to add to the utility of the text.

Low-Loss Storage and Handling of Cryogenic Liquids: The Application of Cryogenic Fluid Dynamics
—Scurlock, R.G., Bostock, T.
—2nd Edition planned 2019
The revised second edition of this practical book reviews the fundamentals of cryogenic liquid behavior in small and large-scale storage systems. The text is based on research findings on the convective and evaporative behavior of cryogenic fluids, aimed at improving the design, construction and operation of low-loss cryogenic liquid storage systems, with a view to minimizing cost and improving operational safety.
