Purpose and Scope:

The ASME Journal of Engineering for Gas Turbines and Power publishes archival-quality papers in the areas of gas and steam turbine technology, nuclear engineering, internal combustion engines, and fossil power generation. It covers a broad spectrum of practical topics of interest to industry. Subject areas covered include: thermodynamics; fluid mechanics; heat transfer; and modeling; propulsion and power generation components and systems; combustion, fuels, and emissions; nuclear reactor systems and components; thermal hydraulics; heat exchangers; nuclear fuel technology and waste management; I. C. engines for marine, rail, and power generation; steam and hydro power generation; advanced cycles for fossil energy generation; pollution control and environmental effects.

Specific topic areas include: gas and steam turbines; nuclear reactor engineering; I. C. engines; fossil energy; high-temperature materials and metallurgy; coal, biomass, and alternative fuels; cogeneration and combined cycles; micro-turbines; oil and gas applications; rotor balancing and vibration; bearings; lubrication; friction and wear; fuel injection and sprays; combustion and emissions technologies; HCCI engine combustion; hybrid vehicle control; high-temperature nuclear reactors; advanced steam cycles; thermal hydraulics CFD; heat exchangers and cooling systems; nuclear reactor structural integrity and life cycle; controls, diagnostics, and instrumentation; steam generators and condensers; and component life management.
