Summary

Multiphase flows gained profound interest to a large variety of thermal industries such as power generation, nuclear reactors, chemical processes and aero related propulsion applications. In general, they applied to model and predict the behaviour of different phases of flow and the phenomena that they manifest. However, developing the optimum multiphase model is challenging owing to the lack of a unique set of equations and assumptions made during simulating each situation. Typically, multiphase flow is a non-equilibrium process depending on the continuum mechanics-based equations like continuity, energy and momentum. The schematic special issue seeks the submissions from the researchers, eminent scientist, academia, and policymakers. The present special issue titled “Modelling of heat transfer and multiphase flows: Recent advances and implications for future research” is therefore conceptualized to cover the area of numerical modelling and simulation of heat transfer multiphase problems using different approach and models.

 

Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

• Flow models at different speed regimes and Mach number

• Droplet dynamics and  Aerodynamic loads  

• Modeling on boiling and condensation phenomena

• Theoretical development of multiphase flows properties

• Noval areas of multiphase flows applications in medical and engineering fields

• Nanomaterials and nanofluids flow dynamics

• Critical assessments of heat transfer through different medium

• Flow patterns: Mass, momentum and energy exchange phenomenon

• CFD for electronics cooling

• CFD Modelling of Thermo-electric Devices

• Correct and effective models of the physical boundary conditions

• Design of different engine models

• Aerodynamics modeling of control surfaces

• Fluid structure interaction for multidisciplinary applications

• Linear and non-linear numerical modeling
