Description: Modern Engineering and Physics very often deal with the need for the design of natural or induced phenomena and processes and this is especially true in the problems involving heat transfer or fluid flows, often on the basis of a Thermodynamic viewpoint or of the Constructal Law. These broad areas of research are presented in this special issue of the journal "Defect and Diffusion Forum".

The special issue on “Computational Analysis of Heat Transfer in Fluids and Solids” of the journal “Defect and Diffusion Forum” addresses various novel nonlinear models and computational techniques important for tackling the heat transfer phenomenon in fluids and solids. Numerical results are discussed quantitatively to illustrate the salient features of practical engineering and industrial applications. Topics covered by excellence research papers in this issue include: extended surfaces fins, reactive flow problem, Newtonian and non-Newtonian flow, nanofluids dynamics, boundary layer flow, natural convection, hydrodynamic stability, biomechanics, plasma physics, physics of dusty plasma, forced convection, mixed convection, magnetohydrodynamics, thermal radiation, porous media flow and irreversibility analysis. We anticipate that our special issue will stimulate and help a wide audience of researchers, engineers and educators from various fields of human activity.
