Thermal Management

A section of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).

Section Information

Dear Colleagues,

Thermal Management has an increasingly important role to play in a variety of industrial sectors, such as high power electronics, data centre management, aerospace and the automotive industry. For example, Thermal Management plays a crucial role in both hybrid and fully electric vehicles, with future technology advances in Thermal Management aimed at increasing the energy efficiency of engines/e-motors, Invertors/IGBTs, transmissions, battery cooling and HVAC systems. Thermal Management is key to consumer acceptance of electrified powertrains, particularly in terms of improved usability and vehicle range, as well as reduced charging times. Furthermore, continuously increasing technical demands have led to a drastic increase in heat generation. In industrial production, smart systems to increase energy efficiency are a key factor in improving the resilience of many industrial segments. For example, despite technological advances, the industrial potential for improved waste heat recovery still represents a huge thermal energy market potential. Thermal Management is a key factor to allow transformative technological advancements towards clean low-carbon energy.

Modern Thermal Management has evolved and expanded from classical heat and mass transfer and thermofluids: Thermal Management should be now considered an essential, stand-alone, core topic in engineering disciplines. This section is devoted to presenting new insights on the physics, new technologies, trends and breakthroughs for controlling heating and cooling. We are keen to accept papers and original research manuscript on the exploration of physical phenomena behind the technical solutions, the experimental and numerical analysis of phenomena, such as boiling, condensation, thermoelectricity, phase-change and thermo-photovoltaic effects and devices such as heat pipes, thermosyphons and so on. It also incorporates a major element of multidisciplinarity such as the development of new materials, or the definition of novel simulation tools through a multi-scale, multi-physics approach.

We are especially keen on accepting papers on passive two-phase thermal systems, such as heat pipes, thermosyphons, thermal diodes, vapour chambers, and so on.  Submissions addressing reviews and surveys will also be welcome.
