The ASME Journal of Heat Transfer disseminates information of permanent interest in the areas of heat and mass transfer. Contributions may consist of results from fundamental research that apply to thermal energy or mass transfer in all fields of mechanical engineering and related disciplines. The ASME Journal of Heat Transfer is complementary to the ASME Journal of Applied Thermal Science and Engineering Applications, which focuses on applications.
The ASME Journal of Heat Transfer topical areas include, but are not limited to: biological heat and mass transfer; combustion and reactive flows; conduction; electronic and photonic cooling; evaporation, boiling and condensation; experimental techniques; forced convection; heat exchanger fundamentals; heat transfer enhancement; heat and mass transfer; heat transfer in manufacturing; jets, wakes, and impingement cooling; melting and solidification; microscale and nanoscale heat transfer; natural and mixed convection; porous media; radiative heat transfer; thermal systems; and two-phase flow and heat transfer. Such topical areas may be seen in: aerospace; the environment; gas turbines; biotechnology; electronic and photonic equipment; energy systems, fire and combustion, heat pipes, manufacturing and materials processing, low temperature and arctic region heat transfer; refrigeration and air conditioning; homeland security systems; multi-phase processes; and microscale and nanoscale devices and processes. Also, archival results of research which focuses on the evaluation of thermophysical properties associated with heat and mass transfer as well as on the theory of heat and mass transfer are appropriate for the ASME Journal of Heat Transfer.
