Special Issue "Analysis of the Irreversibility in Thermal/Isothermal Equipment and Devices to Generate Energy by Computational Fluid Dynamics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2024 | Viewed by 1120
Interests: fluid dynamics; heat transfer; fluid mechanics; applied thermodynamics; heat exchangers; CFD simulation
Nowadays, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has taken on great relevance in the study, design, and optimization of equipment, due to its great ability to simulate and model transport phenomena. CFD helps us to understand the multi-physical phenomena that occur in different kinds of devices, such as fuel cells, turbines and solar collectors, among others. Due to its reliability, several studies have demonstrated the use of CFD as a tool to improve industrial equipment and it is even used in the field of science, such as in medicine to predict diseases. In other words, CFD is used to create virtual environments to help us improve our understanding of the real world.
This Special Issue will accept unpublished original papers focused on the analysis of irreversibility by computational fluid dynamics on the following research areas:
- Thermal equipment, such as fuel cells, solar collectors, heat exchangers, combustors, ovens, refrigeration cabins, etc.;
- Devices used to generate energy, such as horizontal/vertical wind turbines, gas/vapor turbines, etc.;
- Other equipment, such as compressors, blowers, stirred tanks, etc.;
- Biological tissues, such as aorta, veins, heart, etc.;
- CFD combined with optimization methods and entropy.

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.
