Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Guest Editors of the MDPI Entropy Special Issue “Numerical Simulations for Thermal Engineering and Thermodynamic Systems” are inviting authors to submit work for publication. This publication intends to include a wide range of heat transfer and thermodynamics papers covering both theoretical models as well as applications. Models and simulations of heat transfer are complicated procedures dealing with a lot of different phenomena. Those that this Special Issue is aiming towards can be under the scope of CFD modelling or pure thermodynamical analysis, while applications of informational statistical descriptions of such systems are also of interest.

Overall, the topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Numerical models of heat exchangers;
  • Modelling and simulations of 1D and 3D thermal engines and refrigeration systems;
  • Numerical solution methods for the engine and thermal designs;
  • Numerical validation/verification of CFD and heat transfer models against simulations or experimental data;
  • Descriptions of heat transfer models at extreme temperature ranges and phases of matter (plasma physics, Bose–Einstein Condensates, superfluids etc.);
  • Mathematical models for novel solutions of heat transfer or thermofluids models;
  • Combination of numerical and AI models for the description of systems (radiation, porous media, heat exchanges etc.);
  • Applications of renewable technologies relating to power production from applications, such as solar cells, under the scope of their thermal behaviour;
  • Derivations of heat transfer properties of materials;
  • Applications of thermodynamic simulations to informational systems.

In this issue, authors can also submit review papers which consider the modelling and simulations of heat transfer or closely related subjects. In terms of review papers, authors are encouraged to contact the editors to verify that the proposed review is of interest to the Issue.

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.
