Nowadays, the development of modern engineering devices, including heat exchangers, chemical reactors, electronic devices, and others, demands a deeper understanding of the transport processes within these systems. One of the main transport processes is heat transfer. In addition, at high or moderate temperatures, thermal radiation can play an essential role. Therefore, the analysis of this transport mechanism of energy is very important and useful. From a practical and engineering point of view, the study of energy systems should include entropy generation analysis. It is well known that entropy, as a thermodynamic function, reflects a system’s operating status. At the same time, it is necessary to minimize the entropy generation of a system to improve its working effectiveness. The entropy generation minimization technique can be employed for the optimization of technical systems including heat exchangers, elements of nuclear and thermal power plants, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, and so on. This method for the analysis of technical systems takes into account the impacts of hydrodynamics, heat transfer, magnetic fields, porous insertions, and other factors affecting a system’s effectiveness and, irrespective of technical and economic studies, allows to evaluate the basic functionality of a system.
This Special Issue will be an opportunity for extending the research fields of thermal radiation and entropy generation analysis to all aspects of fundamental and practical research. It is a very good chance to collect original studies on the considered topic and present useful guidelines for future researches.
