Heat and mass transfer in porous materials generally covers a wide variety of applied sciences and engineering disciplines concerning theoretical research, fundamental studies, mathematical modeling, numerical simulations, and experimental investigations. Thanks to its significance and prevalence, the investigation of transport phenomena in porous materials has emerged as a distinct field of study.
This Special Issue welcomes high-quality submissions that, through theory and/or simulation, seek to advance the understanding of “Heat and Mass Transfer: Advances in Heat and Mass Transfer in Porous Materials”. It focuses on both analytical and numerical research, with an emphasis on contributions which increase the basic understanding of the equations governing the flow, heat, and mass transfer in porous materials and their analytical and numerical solutions to engineering problems. The scope of the Special Issue includes but is not limited to the following subjects:
- Mesh reduction methods (including collocation method, radial basis function method, meshlessmethods, Trefftz method, method of fundamental solutions, general finite difference method, and others) for modeling the behavior of heat and mass transfer flow in porous materials;
- Analytical methods for solving equations governing the flow, heat, and mass transfer in porous materials;
- Computational techniques in conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer;
- Inverse problems in heat and mass transfer flow;
- Fluid flow and transfer in porous media;
- Applications of heat and mass transfer in engineering;
- Other topics on transport phenomena in porous media.

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.
