Thermal Management

A section of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).

Section Information

Thermal Management is the ability to control the temperature of a system by means of Technology based on Thermodynamics, Fluid Dynamics and Heat and Mass Transfer. The phrase Thermal Management is therefore describing all possible means and processes like conduction, convection, boiling, condensation, radiation, etc. to increase or decrease the temperature and/or the temperature distribution of a specified system. This Section applied novel research about the development and demonstration of components, equipment, technologies and systems involving thermal processes for the production, storage, utilization, and conservation of energy and thermal devices for the transport of heat or insulation. Example topics include:

  • Components and Equipment
    • heat exchangers
    • heat pumps and refrigeration plants
    • heat pipes
    • combined heat and power and advanced alternative cycles
    • polygeneration
    • combustion processes applied in thermal systems
    • heat transfer enhancement
  • Thermofluids
    • fluid dynamics
    • thermodynamics
    • Computational Fluid Mechanics
    • Two-phase/Multiphase flows
  • Physical Phenomena and Analysis
    • boiling
    • condensation
    • thermoelectricity
    • phase-change and thermo-photovoltaic effects
  • Renewable and Clean Energy Technologies
    • solar thermal power plants
    • thermal management of fuel cells and batteries
    • hybrid and fully electric vehicles
    • waste heat recovery
  • Component through to System Design
    • passive thermal design techniques in buildings
    • heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC)
  • Economic assessments
    • thermal engineering projects
    • the financial implications of component, equipment, technological and system design
