At the beginning of the 1980s, the enlightening work by Prof. A. Bejan pointed out that entropy generation should assume a central role in the analysis of heat and fluid flow processes. A bridge between three cornerstone subjects (heat transfer, thermodynamics, and fluid flow), this analysis focuses on the irreversibility associated with the process since heat transfer and fluid flow phenomena are always coupled with entropy generation. With the calculation of local entropy generation, its dependence on the design parameters can be interpreted. Using a continuum framework, a number of heat and fluid flows can be observed in the process industry whenever there is the need to analyze, verify, and optimize some aspect of the process itself.
A common approach for the accurate solution of complex transport phenomena such as heat and fluid flow is computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to solve any combination of partial differential equations (PDE). This Special Issue will accept unpublished original papers and comprehensive reviews that aim to describe promising methods arising from the implementation of CFD models of heat and flow processes such as:
- Predicting the performance of new designs or processes before they are ever manufactured or implemented;
- Analyzing the flows and performance of preexisting process equipment in order to reach conclusions on perspective improvements or optimization possibilities.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
