More on this journal...
IJEX aims to provide a forum for disseminating high-quality research results in the wide domain covered by the methods of exergy analysis, entropy generation minimisation and thermo-economics. Papers on related topics such as exergy utilisation, irreversible process modelling, size and time constraints, environmental modelling, exergy waste and emissions and exergo-economics are welcome. Also welcome are studies devoted to method, modelling, theory, computational simulation, design, experimentation, and measurement. It is our objective to bring the community together in the forum for IJEX and to expand it. The hope of all of us in thermodynamics is to develop a more coherent science, and to leave for future generations a more useful methodology.Readership
Exergy analysis is cited by many researchers and practising engineers to be a powerful tool for assessing the thermodynamic efficiencies and losses of systems and processes. Not surprisingly, therefore, the technique is used in various industries. For example, some electrical generation companies in Europe utilise exergy methods to enhance and maintain plant performance. Exergy and exergy related topics are getting the highest percentage of support in North America and Europe. Even in developing countries, there are many individual projects getting significant research money for exergy related topics.
In a world rapidly running out of fossil fuel, exergy appears to be one of potential solutions for more efficient use of energy resources and better environment and sustainability. During the past decade, we have witnessed revolutionary changes in the way thermodynamics is taught, researched and practised. The methods of exergy analysis, entropy generation minimisation and exergoeconomics have become the most visible and established forms of this change. The emphasis is now on modelling and thermodynamic optimisation, not only in the mainstreams of engineering (e.g., mechanical, civil, chemical, environmental, industrial, etc.) but also in physics, biology, economics and management. IJEX addresses the issues concerning the very active and creative community of researchers, educators and practitioners, which has grown along these very exciting new lines.Contents
