The Guest Editor is inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of “Advance in Thermal Hydraulics of Reactor Engineering and Reactor Safety Analysis”. The most crucial factor for fission nuclear energy is reactor safety. Thermal hydraulics continues to be an important area of exploration when it comes to comprehending the safety operation and design of nuclear systems. Specifically，the thermal-hydraulic analysis of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer can be used to determine critical reactor design parameters. In addition, the technology for reactor accident (flow boiling crisis, flow instability, and loss of coolant accidents) mitigation and prevention is necessary for the system’s optimization and safety assessments of nuclear power plants. The reliability of thermal-hydraulic computer codes in predicting consequences of severe accidents and the specification of appropriate accident management strategies are main challenges in mitigating potential severe accidents in nuclear safety analyses.
This Special Issue invites all researchers from nuclear reactor academia and industry to share their latest important results to advance the fields of thermal hydraulics and reactor safety. Submissions of high-quality research papers on the above topics are welcome, particularly those demonstrating a high level of academic discussion and communication. Topics of interest for publication include but are not limited to the following:
- Nuclear thermal hydraulics;
- Nuclear safety analysis;
- Fluid mechanics;
- Heat transfer;
- Flow boiling crisis;
- Flow instability;
- Loss of coolant accident;
- Computational fluid dynamics;
- Severe accident analysis.

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. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
