Special Issue "Advances in Combustion of Gases, Liquid Fuels, Coal and Biomass"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2019.
Dr. Peter B. Sunderland Website E-Mail
Professor, Department of Fire Protection Engineering, University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA
Interests: combustion and fire research, including soot formation and oxidation, microgravity combustion, refrigerant flammability, hydrogen flames, laminar diffusion flames, sodium fires, battery fires, vehicle fires and diagnostics development
This Special Issue of Energies gathers research on combustion as related to energy production and the associated fire and explosion safety. Both fundamental and applied research is welcome. Articles may be original research or reviews. Submissions must include state-of-the-art experiments, computations, and/or theory.
Combustion provides an estimated 85% of the world’s energy consumption. Advances in combustion research can benefit society in three main ways. Improving energy efficiency can reduce fuel consumption. Improving emissions can reduce climate change and adverse health effects. Improving fire and explosion safety can protect people, property, and the environment.
The topical areas covered by this Special Issue are broad. It is hoped that this breadth will lead to a better understanding of combustion and improved diagnostic and numerical tools. This, in turn, may result in improved combustors, a cleaner environment, novel fuels, and improved safety and energy security.

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. Energies 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.
