Aims and scope

Objectifs de la revue

Thermodynamics of Interfaces and Fluid Mechanics deals with interfaces that are space areas with a low thickness and which separate environments of different properties. They designate phase separation but also thin flames and waves of discontinuity. At a macroscopic scale, they are associated with material surfaces that possess thermodynamic attributes and their own behavior laws.

 

The analysis of systems with interfaces involves scale changes and the use of specific techniques such as asymptotic developments, the second gradient theory or the phase field model method. Digital simulation is implemented in order to solve the complex systems studied. Testing is an essential step to solve the set problems.

 

2D varieties of interfaces often coexist with 1D varieties such as ligaments (atomization), contact lines (set drops) or Plateau’s edges (foams).

 

The articles in the journal deal with all of the mentioned above subjects.

Thermodynamique des interfaces et mécanique des fluides traite des interfaces qui sont des zones de l’espace de faible épaisseur séparant des milieux à propriétés différentes. Elles désignent les séparations de phase, mais aussi les flammes minces et les ondes de discontinuité. A l’échelle macroscopique, on les assimile à des surfaces matérielles douées de propriétés thermodynamiques et possédant leurs propres lois de comportement.


L’analyse des systèmes comprenant des interfaces implique des changements d’échelle et l’utilisation de techniques spécifiques telles que les développements asymptotiques, la théorie du second gradient ou la méthode des champs de phase. La simulation numérique est mise en œuvre pour résoudre les systèmes complexes étudiés. L’expérimentation est une étape indispensable pour résoudre les problèmes posés.

Les variétés 2D que constituent les interfaces coexistent fréquemment avec des variétés 1D telles les ligaments (atomisation), les lignes de contact (gouttes posées) ou les bords de Plateau (mousses).


Les articles de la revue traitent de l’ensemble des disciplines énumérées plus haut.

Simulation of a pollutant’s concentration degradation in permanent two-dimensional flow using the finite element method.

In this study, we do perform a simulation of a pollutant’s degradation in two-dimensional flow using the finite elements method in an area of 15 units by 15 in length. To this end, we start by establishing the strong (...)


Thermal field of a fed drop subjected to HF disturbances

The oscillatory temperature field of a spherical drop in evaporation is examined. The motionless drop is fed continuously at the centre so that it keeps a constant volume during the process. The feeding with the same liquid (...)
