Studies of fluid flow and heat transfer in a porous media has been a subject of continuous interest for the past several decades because of the wide range of applications, such as drying technology, solar systems, building insulation, compact heat transfer and design of nuclear reactors, geothermal systems, drying technologies, the control of pollutant spread in groundwater, and many other applications. Various types of liquids can mix with each other due to the porous boundaries, and a porous medium is very helpful to separate the particles from fluid. However, one of the major issues in these applications is the enhancement of the heat transfer efficiency of fluid during the process, which is also called irreversibility. To overcome this problem, the second law of thermodynamics has recently been applied by researchers for minimization of entropy generation to find optimal engineering system designs. Entropy generation determines the level of irreversibilities accumulating during a process. Consequently, entropy production can be used as a criterion to assess the performance of engineering devices.
The existing literature indicates that the study of these topics still needs attention. In order to fill this gap, researchers are invited to contribute their original research and review papers on these topics.

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 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.
