About the Journal
International Journal of Advanced Thermofluid Research (IJATR) is the first prestigious scholarly publication of International Research Establishment for Energy and Environment (IREEE), and it has been emerged out of the need for a fast responding, high quality journal in which the innovations in Energy, Thermodynamics, Heat transfer and Fluid Flow, are brought under one umbrella. As the scientific research is progressing with a dramatic pace, the researchers often encounter desperate processing delay in publishing their contributions. If the findings are not documented in time, it would be quite likely that the contributions become outdated, thereby leaving their entire effort vain. On the other side, the quality concern of scientific research and publication needs serious attention. To face these challenges, IJATR has a dedicated team of editors and reviewers with a commitment to ensure finishing the review process within a maximum of two months, while ensuring quality and novelty. The journal will serve as a forum for practitioners, researchers and managers to share their knowledge and experience in the design, development, implementation, management and evaluation of various thermofluid applications.
Aim and Scope
International Journal of Advanced Thermofluid Research (IJATR) aims to be timely in disseminating leading-edge knowledge to researchers, practitioners and academicians whose interest is in the latest developments in advanced thermofluid research concepts, strategies, practices, tools and technologies. In particular, the journal encourages researches that have significant contributions towards the continuous development and improvement of thermal practices. By doing so, the journal attempts to bridge the gap between the academic and industrial communities, and therefore, welcomes theoretically grounded, methodologically sound and innovative researches of applied nature. Accordingly, the contributions to this journal are expected from, but not limited to, the following areas:
Thermal control of systems; refrigeration and air-conditioning systems; thermal food processing; thermal comfort; fluid-structure interaction analysis of thermal systems; novel systems/cycles for solar absorption/adsorption cooling; thermodynamic analysis of energy and thermal systems; IC engines, fuels and combustion; gas and vapor power systems;
