Modeling and Analysis in Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer

Description

Thermodynamics and heat transfer are key modes of energy transport, energy conversation, energy conservation, and energy management in the nature and many applications such as heat exchangers, thermal energy storage systems, gas turbines, aircrafts, and human body. Thermodynamic analysis is essential for other fields of physics and for chemistry, chemical engineering, aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, cell biology, biomedical engineering, and materials science and is useful in other fields such as economics. Heat transfer concerns the generation, use, conversion, and exchange of thermal energy and heat between physical systems. Heat transfer is normally classified into thermal conduction, thermal convection, thermal radiation, and transfer of energy by phase changes. In most cases, it is very difficult to obtain analytical solutions of thermodynamic and heat transfer problems, and numerical modeling and analysis are becoming a powerful tool in related areas. A large number of analytical and computational techniques are developed for modeling and analyzing thermodynamic system and heat transfer process. A great amount of the literature was published, and perhaps a lot more is available as classified work with the industry on this important subject.

This special issue focuses on the latest advancements in thermodynamics and heat transfer. We invite investigators to contribute to this special issue with original research articles as well as review articles on advances in thermodynamic or heat transfer problems.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Mathematical models/methods/algorithm for thermodynamics and heat transfer
  • Engineering thermodynamics (chemical thermodynamic, material thermodynamic, mechanical thermodynamic, etc.)
  • Heat transfer and heat transfer engineering
  • Heat transfer enhancement and cooling
  • Thermodynamic system analysis and optimization
  • Microscale or thermodynamics and heat transfer
  • Design and optimization of heat transfer process
  • Computational analysis of thermodynamic or heat transfer problems
  • Other related computational techniques
