Aims & Scope

The main objective of this international journal is to provide applied mathematicians, engineers and scientists engaged in computer-aided design and research in computational heat transfer and fluid dynamics, whether in academic institutions of industry, with timely and accessible information on the development, refinement and application of computer-based numerical techniques for solving problems in heat and fluid flow.


The journal corresponds to rapid developments in computer technology and acquisition of field and laboratory data, more accurate predictive methods are continually being developed. This trend is particularly discernible when scrutinising recent developments in the application of numerical methods as a predictive in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and heat transfer.

Key benefits

The International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow acts as a disseminating medium for such developments, on an international basis, ensuring access to relevant, topical material. The quality and reliability of contributions is guaranteed through a rigorous peer review process, which ensures the applicability of procedures advocated-allowing them to form a firm foundation for further research and development.
