Losses in a flow and heat transfer process, from a thermodynamics point of view, are due to irreversible processes. In order to better understand the physics of these loss-producing mechanisms, fluid mechanic and heat transfer considerations might be complemented by some thermodynamic concepts with respect to the irreversible processes involved. Basically, these are concepts that assess energy by its value in terms of its convertibility from one form to another.
The second law analysis (SLA) is often used in thermodynamics in order to assess an irreversible process. According to SLA, the quality of a flow and heat transfer process, and how reversible it is can only be assessed by the entropy generation rate. In our Special Issue, “Entropy in Computational Fluid Dynamics”, SLA is applied to both engineering applications and fundamental studies with respect to flow and heat transfer problems. The studies in the Special Issue show that SLA is a powerful tool for analyzing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) results.
The current Special Issue will further enhance knowledge about how to interpret CFD results with SLA. Analyses of irreversibility in traditional flow or heat transfer processes, e.g., evaluating irreversibility in gas turbines, are still a main topic of this Special Issue. In addition to traditional problems, irreversible processes in emerging subjects, such as nano- and micro-fluid flows, biological and physiological flows, are of particular interests.

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. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
