Interests: enhancement of heat and mass transfer (fundamental investigations and development of adapted sanctions); critical use of commercial CFD-Software; evaluation of transport phenomena by entropy production considerations; influence of heat transfer on flow stability; fundamental investigations of momentum-, heat- and mass-transfer in components of micro fluid devices; LDV measurements in turbulent separated flows
In almost all technical applications momentum, heat, and/or mass transfer occurs. These transfer processes are subject to "losses", which from a thermodynamic point of view can be identified as losses of exergy (available work). A second law analysis (SLA) is appropriate to identify and to quantify these losses by determining the entropy generation involved. Whenever exergy losses are disadvantageous and should be avoided as far as possible it comes to an "Entropy Generation Minimization". The special issue of Entropy collects studies that account for the entropy generation in this sence in various fields.
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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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.
