Summary

With overwhelming responses from research groups from around the world for our first special issue “Computational and Numerical Advances in Heat Transfer: Models and Methods I”, the second edition of the special issue is here to facilitate the researchers in the field of computational and numerical heat transfer in fluid dynamics to present/submit novel works in the second issue title as “Computational and Numerical Advances in Heat Transfer: Models and Methods II”.


This special issue is dedicated to the computational and numerical advances made in heat transfer mechanisms and techniques in recent years. Heat transfer (convection, free convection, and forced convection) in different models, namely square cavities, rectangular cavities, pipes, conduits, and other such configurations, is of great significance in industrial and engineering fields. It is becoming considerably more effective in the heat transfer field to adopt new methodologies and tools, such as commercial software and in-house built codes. The commercial software includes COMSOL Multiphysics, OpemFoam, and Ansys Fluent, Abaqus to simulate and investigate the heat transfer phenomenon in distinct configurations.


One of the other key focuses of the second edition is advances in numerical methods to elucidate flow and heat analysis of different flow regimes. Numerical methods such as the Shooting method, Finite Difference schemes, Keller Box method, Homotopy Analysis Method, Optimal Homotopy Analysis Method, Lattice Boltzmann method, and Finite Element Analysis have been extensively explored to carry out analysis of different flow problems. These methods are of key significance in investigating convection, heat transfer, radiative heat, and mass transfer, as well as in analyzing the Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluid models.


In recent years, mathematicians have made significant advances with computational tools to examine different fluid flow problems. Such a significant approach is to employ neural networks or artificial neural networks. ANN has been extensively employed by mathematicians to simulate heat transfer in distinct flow regimes. This special issue also focuses on the advances made in this area by examining heat transfer in Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluid models.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Heat transfer in cavities, conduits, channels and rectangular cavities filled with nano or hybrid nanofluids.

  • Simulation of flow and heat transfer in distinct configurations using commercial software and in-house built codes.

  • Advance in numerical methods and their application to evaluate the heat transfer (free, forced, or mixed convection) in Newtonian or non-Newtonian fluids.

  • Role of constant and variable thermophysical fluid properties in heat transfer processes in nanofluid and hybrid nanofluids.

  • Advance in artificial neural networks (supervised and unsupervised) to access the heat transfer in different flow regimes.
