We are inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Fluids on the subject area of “Heat Transfer and Fluid Dynamics in Energy Systems.”
Recent advances in numerical and experimental methods have revolutionized the study of flow and heat transfer in various engineering applications, such as electronic devices, fluid delivery systems, power plants, heat exchangers, etc. Accurate prediction of hydrodynamics and thermal transmission in energy systems is very important and, as a result, significant research activity has been devoted to this topic. The motivation for this Special Issue is to present a series of research articles in various areas of both experimental and numerical heat transfer and fluid dynamics studies in different thermal and energy systems.
The topics of interest for the Special Issue include (but are not limited to):
- Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for energy systems
- Convective heat transfer in single phase and multiphase flow
- The heat transfer enhancement technique and energy saving
- Experimental analysis of fluid flow and heat transfer in thermal and energy systems
- Flow/heat transfer mechanisms in the microscale
- Active and passive cooling systems in electronics and power engineering
- Complex heat transfer in energy systems
Numerical, theoretical, and experimental studies are all welcome. Interdisciplinary and cutting-edge works will be encouraged.

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. Fluids is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
