Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Since the beginning of this discipline, the roles and contributions of women in the development of classical thermodynamics have never been clearly presented. Despite the large number of scientific papers and books co-authored by women during the 20th century, not many of them are known, even to experts. This runs contrary to the contributions woman make in chemistry-related areas of thermodynamics, which are better known because of the processes named after them.

The strategic goal for society is to ensure a stable, flexible, efficient, economically feasible, and ecologically clean future. The developments concerning these aspects are associated with thermodynamics.

Improving the individual technologies becomes more challenging from year-to-year, as thermodynamic inefficiencies approach unavoidable levels.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to emphasize the research activities of female scientists (lead researcher or co-author) in the field of thermodynamics. Thermodynamic research is often “an idea” that can become reality through a deep evaluation, optimization, and practical realization.

MDPI and Dynamics dedicate this project to the International Women’s Day. On behalf of all colleagues involved in this project, I would like to send you my best wishes for your health, success, and happiness.

We encourage our female colleagues to consider contributing to this Special Issue. If so, please send a short abstract to Prof. Morosuk before submitting the paper.

Prof. Dr. Tatiana Morosuk

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Dynamics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

The present study is an analysis of the processes in the components of the LPG (propane/butane) reliquefaction plant under the conditions of co-mingling in tanks when transporting by sea. For the analysis, the monitoring data of an LPG cargo operation have been used. An energy analysis of the mixture-based reliquefaction plant has been performed. The characteristics of the mixture in the tanks, the operating conditions of the reliquefaction plant, and the performance of the system have been considered. The method of equivalence has been applied for thermodynamic analysis. The result of the substitution of actual processes with equivalent ones allows for the accomplishment of the parameters control of each working fluid within the mixture as a pure working fluid. It is shown that the low-boiling component determines the operating parameters of the entire reliquefaction plant. The method of equivalence and visualization of the processes within the LPG as a mixture using the thermodynamic diagrams of pure working fluids is recommended to shorten the path to set up the appropriate reliquefaction plant management strategy. The energy analysis performed using the method of equivalent cycles has been validated with the existing reliquefaction plant characteristics. The inaccuracies are in the limit of 4%. Full article
