The Journal of Enhanced Heat Transfer
will consider a wide range of scholarly papers related to the subject of "enhanced heat and mass transfer" in natural and forced convection of liquids and gases, conduction and radiative heat transfer, phase-change heat transfer, process heat transfer, thermal management, energy conversion and sustainability, carbon capture and storage. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Specially configured surface geometries, surface modifications, electric or magnetic fields, particle and fluid additives, metamaterials, micro/nanoscale and atomic scale designs—all aimed at enhancing heat transfer rates or thermal energy storage/usage.
- The general topic of "high performance" heat transfer concepts, heat-exchange devices, energy systems, or electronics thermal management is also encouraged.
- Emerging areas in heat transfer, energy sustainability, and carbon neutrality are very welcome.
- Papers may include theoretical modeling, experimental techniques, experimental data, and/or application of enhanced heat transfer technology.
- The journal will also consider well-prepared review articles within the identified subject areas.
- Archival quality papers previously published at limited distribution conferences are also accepted. The author may need to provide a copyright release from the conference publisher.
Manuscripts should discuss how they are both related to, and unique from, existing published works. It is not sufficient to merely analyze or test a slightly modified shape or range of operating parameters. If "shape" issues are involved, what is important about this shape? Is it important to specific applications? If so, discuss this. A key question is "What new results, or understanding, does the manuscript provide?" Additionally, CFD papers must address and discuss the "underlying physics" of their numerical study. It is insufficient to simply present a CFD solution without in-depth discussion of the transfer mechanisms involved. Papers that are not related to "enhanced heat and mass transfer" or "high performance" heat transfer concepts or systems will not be accepted for review.
There are big challenges for human beings to deal with energy shortages, environmental issues and sustainable development nowadays. Developments and breakthroughs of scientific theories and innovative technologies for advanced thermal management, energy conversion and storage are urgently needed. In particular, interdisciplinary research subjects, new theory and advanced technologies play a key role in achieving sustainable thermal dissipation, energy and storage systems. It is therefore essential to study and develop advanced thermal management, energy conversion and storage technologies with net zero carbon emissions and engineering applications.
The objective of this special issue is to collect recent research papers regarding the frontier research achievements of advanced thermal management, energy conversion and storage. High quality papers reporting original and cutting-edge research with theoretical, experimental and numerical findings, innovative design and engineering applications will be included in the issue.
Manuscripts (original research or comprehensive review) must be prepared according to the
