Manuscript Extension Submission Deadline 15 December 2022

Heat transfer is an important issue in aerospace applications. Both spacecraft and aircraft consist of electronic and mechanical components. These components must remain in certain temperature limits to achieve successful and longer operation. This is achieved by appropriate thermal design. Thermal hardware such as heat pipes, vapor chambers, radiators et cetera are used in the thermal control of electronic equipment in aerospace applications. Experimental and computational studies have been focused on heat transfer related to aerospace applications. However, the theories and methods for the thermal management of aerospace applications are still needed to be further developed to improve the performance of the systems, subsystems, and equipment.

This Research Topic aims to highlight theories and techniques that are making advances towards meeting the emerging challenges in heat transfer in aerospace applications. We invite Original Research, Review, Brief Research Report, Mini Review, and Perspective focused on all aspects of heat transfer in aerospace applications.

Areas of particular interest to be covered in this Research Topic on heat transfer in aerospace applications include, but are not limited to:

• Conductive, convective, and radiative heat transfer
• Liquid and spray cooling heat transfer
• Heat transfer in heat pipes and vapor chambers
• Phase change materials
• Nano, micro and macro-scale heat transfer
• Electronics cooling applications
• Multiphase flow and heat transfer
• Enhancement of heat transfer
• Thermal interface materials
• Thermal management hardware and software

Keywords: heat transfer, electronics cooling, evaporation, heat pipe, vapor chamber, thermal control, thermal analysis, thermal design, boiling and condensation


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
