The importance of improving heat transfer performance is well known in the fields of industry and research. Enhanced heat transfer methods are widely encountered in many disciplines of science and engineering, such as the energy management, aerospace science, mechanical engineering, material science, biology and biophysics, chemical and petroleum engineering and more. The challenges in the heat transfer processes in the industries and in many other engineering and scientific fields have been overcome in the last few decades. With the latest developments on thermal engineering, heat transfer and fluid dynamics, the equipment, systems, processes, materials, and related objects with enhanced efficiency and performance is achieved with minimum waste and entropy generation. This special issue focuses on covering a variety of scientific topics related to the recent developments in the field of fluid flow, thermal and heat transfer. It aims to document the state-of-the-art research developments, new results, review, theoretical research, fundamental studies, mathematical modeling, numerical simulations, and experimental investigations relating to any kind of current and emerging topics in fluid flow, thermal and heat transfer

    Abstract Heat transfer in an Eyring-Powell fluid that conducts electricity and flows past an exponentially growing sheet is considered. As the sheet is stretched in the x direction, the flow develops in the region with y > 0. The problem is tackled through a set of partial differential equations accounting for Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), radiation and Joule heating effects, which are converted into a set of equivalent ordinary differential equations through a similarity transformation. The converted problem is solved in MATLAB in the framework a fourth order accurate integration scheme. It is found that the thermal relaxation period More >

    Abstract A new design of a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) mixer called tornado was developed for a heavy-duty diesel engine to solve the urea deposition problem. A combination of CFD simulation and experimental studies was used to comprehensively evaluate the performance of the tornado mixer. According to the numerical simulations, this mixer can improve the front surface flow uniformity of the SCR carrier by 6.67% and the NH3 distribution uniformity by 3.19% compared to a traditional mixer. Similarly, steady state SCR conversion efficiency test results have shown that the tornado mixer can increase the average SCR conversion More >
