Brunel thermofluids expert takes charge of pioneering new journal


An academic from Brunel University London’s department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering has been appointed the official Editor-in-Chief of a brand-new gold open access journal.

Professor Hussam Jouhara has been selected to head up the International Journal of Thermofluids, established by leading journal publisher Elsevier, which is now open for submissions.

The journal will publish original research on energy engineering, heat and mass transfer, thermodynamics, combustion and much more. All submissions will undergo high-quality peer review from experts in the field, with accepted papers published rapidly and freely available to read.

Prof Jouhara has unique expertise working on two-phase heat transfer, thermofluids and energy-related research activities and has extensive experience engaging with industry and government. His achievements include successfully creating various new designs for industrial waste heat recovery and thermal systems that have boosted the performance of many industrial processes both nationally and globally.

“I am honoured to take up the role of Editor-in-Chief and look forward to building the journal’s influence and beginning the journey towards greater understanding of cutting-edge thermofluids research,” said Prof Jouhara.

“It is the aim of the journal to provide a venue for high-quality articles that are accessible to the research community, which will lead to a much stronger external impact of the authors’ work.”

Professor Stefaan Simons, Dean of the College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences at Brunel, added: “It is no surprise to me that Prof Jouhara has been appointed to this role. I am sure that in his capable hands this new journal will be steered successfully and will make a substantial impact on this important field of research."
