Special Issue in Energies: Waste Recovery Heat Systems for Vehicles
Spray science and technology are based on the fundamental hydrodynamic mechanisms underlying the formation of droplets and particles in a spray that can be used in a multitude of engineering systems.
The scope of this Special Issue highlights the progress in spray science and technology in a reciprocal way. The progress of new scientific insights in spray formation inspired by technological challenges, and the progress of new technologies developed from advances in spray science.
There are numerous challenges that we face in this century where the application of sprays plays an important role, such as sustainable energy systems and storage, thermal management technologies, agriculture, medicine, the pharmaceutical industry, the painting and coating industries, and many others.
This Special Issue will consider contributions in the progress of spray science and technology on the following topics:
- New developments
- in physical models of liquid atomization;
- and atomization strategies;
- in multiphase flows of droplets and particles;
- in statistical approaches to experimental spray characterization;
- experimental techniques in spray characterization;
- applications in spray technology;
- insights and applications of spray–wall interactions;
- research in the dynamic thermofluid behavior of sprays under extreme environments;
- Challenges in the atomization of nanofluids.

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 papers will be 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
