Objectifs et champs d'application
Computational Thermal Sciences is an international journal designed to provide a forum for the exposure and exchange of ideas, methods and results in computational thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, heat transfer and mass transfer in solids, liquids and gases, with applications in areas such as energy, materials processing, manufacturing and the environment. All modes of heat and mass transfer will be included: conduction, convection, diffusion, radiation and phase change. Topics to be
covered will also include the laws of thermodynamics, the thermal properties of substances, engine and
refrigeration cycles and combustion.
Papers on all aspects – both fundamental and applied – will be welcome: on the one hand the development
of new mathematical methods and computational algorithms, and on the other the application of new or existing methods to the solution of problems in the thermal sciences. Reports of experimental studies undertaken in conjunction with computational work are encouraged. In addition, review papers on relevant topics are invited as is correspondence on published papers. The assessment of the accuracy of computational solutions through verification (examining and limiting errors associated with discretization and with the computational solution methods adopted) and validation (quantification of errors in the physical models used) are essential parts of any computational study, and authors are expected to examine
Correspondence will be welcomed on any aspect of the papers published.
