Two-Phase Flow and Heat Transfer Enhancement

Call for Papers

Gas-liquid two-phase flow and heat transfer processes are commonly encountered in a wide variety of applications e.g. refrigeration and air conditioning systems, power engineering, and other thermal processing plants. The advantage of high thermal performance in comparison to the single-phase applications leads to various engineering applications including the cooling systems of various types of equipment such as high performance micro-electronics, supercomputers, high-powered lasers, medical devices, high heat-flux compact heat exchangers in spacecraft and satellites etc.

The aim of this special issue is to collect the original research as well as review papers on the recent developments in the field of two-phase flow and heat transfer enhancement. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced heat pipe technologies
  • Boiling and condensation heat transfer
  • CHF and post-CHF heat transfer
  • Cooling of electronic system
  • Heat and mass transfer in phase change processes
  • Instabilities of two-phase flow
  • Measurements and modeling of two-phase flow in micro-channel
  • Microgravity in two-phase flow
  • Nanofluids science and technology
  • Nuclear reactor applications
  • Passive and active heat transfer enhancement techniques
  • Refrigeration and air-conditioning technology
  • Two-phase flow with heat and mass transfer
  • Two-phase refrigerant flow
  • Special topics on the latest advances in two-phase flow and heat transfer
