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, boiling and condensation, conduction and radiative heat transfer. Areas of interest include, but will not be 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. Papers may include theoretical modeling, experimental techniques, experimental data, and/or application of enhanced heat transfer technology.
- The general topic of "high performance" heat transfer concepts, devices, or systems is also encouraged.
- 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 the proposed manuscript is both related to, and unique from, existing published works. It is not sufficient to merely analyze or a 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.
