International Journal of Thermal Sciences
Int J Therm Sci
Published/Hosted by Elsevier Science.
The International Journal of Thermal Sciences is an international journal devoted to the publication of fundamental studies on the physics of transfer processes in general, with emphasis on thermal aspects and also relevant applied research on various processes, energy systems and the environment. It is a bi-lingual journal, in English and French, with a review committee.The fundamental subjects considered within the scope of the journal are: heat and relevant mass transfer in all types of materials (heterogeneous, porous, etc.), forced, natural or mixed convection in reactive (combustion, etc.) or non-reactive, single or multiphase fluid flow with or without phase change, radiation, including its transmission in semi-transparent media, combined modes of transfer, transfer processes in plasmas, non-linear dynamics, the study of irreversible phenomena, etc. The applied research topics include heat exchangers, their optimization and fouling, heat pipes, the cooling of certain systems, combustion engines and energy systems in general, their optimization and control, transfer operations occurring in many processes in chemical, food and agricultural, metallurgical, space and aeronautical, automotive, etc. industries, heat transmission and comfort in buildings, thermobiology, etc.Also of interest to the journal, of course, is the impact of energy-related processes on the environment: pollution caused by the emissions from heat engines (nitrogen oxides, CO2, HCFCs1, etc.), air quality. The study of thermophysical properties of materials and fluids, thermal measurement techniques and data processing, particularly those based on such procedures as the inverse methods, the development of experimental methods, are certainly within the field of interest of the International Journal of Thermal Sciences, which also covers the modelling and numerical methods applied to thermal transfer. In addition to standard scientific papers presenting the results of specific experimental or practical studies, the International Journal of Thermal Sciences / Revue Générale de Thermique publishes 'review papers' on a given scientific and referring to numerous results of well know authors in the field, 'papers of opinion' written by scientists or people from industry, stressing the needs and the future research in given scientific areas. A separate section 'News' reports the activities taking place in national and international communities involved in thermal science.
