  • Introduction

    With long-term history of development, the science "Convection heat and mass transfer" has become an important scientific field so far, and plays huge role in engineering and People's life. However, with the rapid development of modern industry the current achievements of traditional theory of convection heat and mass transfer are still not adapted to the practical requirements. For a simple example, a lot of calculation correlations on convection heat and mass transfer application are still empirical or semi-empirical from experiment. Therefore, a big challenge is to develop innovative research for enhancement of the practical application value of convection heat and mass transfer. The original achievements on theoretical and experimental research are encouraged in our special issue, which may include theoretical methods, mathematical models, numerical approaches and calculation, treatment of variable physical properties, novel experiment method and results, and progress of convection heat and mass transfer application.

    Scientific topics we seek include but are not limited to the following technical fields:

    a) Hydrodynamics and convection heat transfer of Newtonian fluids
    b) Hydrodynamics and convection heat transfer of non-Newtonian fluids
    c) Hydrodynamics and convection heat transfer with porous median
    d) Hydrodynamics and heat transfer with mixed convection
    e) Solidification heat transfer
    f) Heat and mass transfer in MHD convection
    g) Heat transfer with nanofluids convection
    h) Convection heat and mass transfer in minichannels
    i) Hydrodynamics and heat and mass transfer of film boiling convection
    j) Hydrodynamics and heat and mass transfer of core boiling convection
    k) Hydrodynamics and heat and mass transfer of film condensation convection of pure vapour
    l) Hydrodynamics and heat and mass transfer of film condensation convection of vapour-gas mixture
    m) Experimental on convection hydrodynamics and heat transfer
    n) Models of variable physical properties of fluids
    o) Effect of fluid temperature-dependent physical properties on convection heat transfer
    p) Effect of variable physical properties on heat and mass transfer of film boiling convection
    q) Effect of variable physical properties on heat and mass transfer of film condensation convection
    r) Effect of non-condensable gas on heat and mass transfer of film condensation convection of vapour-gas mixture
    s) Mathematical models and numerical approaches on convection heat and mass transfer
    t) Convection heat and mass transfer application
    u) Research and development of renewable Energyv) Marginal stability of boundary layer
