Description:

The special issue on “New Development for Heat Transfer in Solids and Fluid Flow” of the journal “Defect and Diffusion Forum” addresses a number of pertinent issues related to novel analytical and numerical modelling of various problems with respect to heat transfer in solids and fluid flow. Papers presented cover exothermic kinetics in solids, nanofluids and hybrid nanofluids dynamics, natural convection, forced convection, mixed convection, magnetohydrodynamics, biotransport, porous media flow and entropy generation 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.

Description:

Defects and diffusion are key concepts at the description of nuclear materials behavior at thermal and radiation impacts. The evolution of various defects (such as point defects, dislocations, grain boundaries) determines changes of the materials properties under operating conditions. The present issue contains new and relevant data about the diffusion and defects in nuclear fuel (uranium alloys, oxide and nitride fuel) and structural materials (steel and non-ferrous metals). We hope that this special issue will be useful for researchers and engineers working in the field of material science and nuclear engineering. We wish to thank the authors for their contributions to this special issue and reviewers for their cooperation and efforts to prepare and evaluate the manuscripts.

Description: The topical volume “Recent Developments in Mass Transport and Related Phenomena in Materials” is intended to capture a broad cross-section of contemporary research on mass transport and related phenomena in a wide spectrum of technologically important materials. The range of topics presented in this volume is very wide, covering theory, computer simulations and experiments dealing with a wide variety of materials. This reflects the enormous breadth of this area.

Description: This special topic volume  of Defect and Diffusion Forum covers in a wider sense diffusion related phenomena. One of the most important challenges of modern society is the efficient, secure and sustainable generation and conversion of energy. This topics spans from the application of classical fossil fuels (e.g. oil and coal based) to natural gas and more alternative approaches which are based on bio fuels, solar energy and wave energy conversion. In the same way important are the connected topics of reusing waste thermal energy as well as the opposite need of cooling. A further topic which requires a similar skill set and which is covered in this topical volume is related to the manufacturing (e.g. furnaces), modification (e.g. heat treatment) and processing (thermal cutting) of materials.
