Study of magnetic field effects has attracted many attentions in engineering sciences due to its wide applications such as in the polymer industry and metallurgy where hydro-magnetic techniques are being used. To be more specific, it may be pointed out that many metal surgical processes involve the cooling of continuous strips or filaments by drawing them through a quiescent fluid and that in the process of drawing, these strips are sometimes stretched. In all these cases, the properties of the final product depend on the rate of cooling by drawing such strips in an electrically conducting fluid subject to a magnetic field and the characteristic desired in the final product. Existence of magnetic field has a noticeable effect on heat transfer reduction under natural convection while in many engineering applications increasing heat transfer from solid surfaces is a goal. At this circumstance, the use of nanofluids with higher thermal conductivity can be considered as a promising solution. An innovative way for enhancing the thermal conductivity of the fluids is the use of nanofluids. Nanofluids are a new class of heat transfer fluid containing nanoparticles in the size range under 100 nm that are uniformly and stably suspended in a liquid. Energy transportation of the nanofluid is affected by the properties and dimension of nanoparticles as well as the solid volume fraction. Compared with base fluids, a number of recent experiments have indicated dramatic improvements in effective static thermal conductivity. In numerical studies two methods are used for simulation of nanofluid hydrothermal behavior: Single phase model and Two phase model. Magnetic field can be variable with time or space. A ferrofluid behaves as a fluid that is affected by an external magnetic field and externally applied magnetic fields can be used to control and direct the flow of ferrofluids, because of which it is applicable in various fields such as electronic packing, mechanical engineering, thermal engineering, aerospace and bioengineering.

The Special Issue in Fluid Flow and Thermo-Mechanics Engineering will be a forum for the publication of high-quality peer-reviewed papers on integral-differential equations, finite elements, finite differences, finite volumes, and boundary elements. This issue also publishes contributions that employ existing experimental techniques to gain an understanding of the underlying flow physics in the areas of turbulence, aerodynamics, hydrodynamics, convective heat transfer, combustion, turbomachinery, and multi-phase flows. In fact, Fluid flow and Thermo-Mechanics applications are ubiquitous in nature. Many aspects in industrial operations and daily life are closely related to fluid flow and heat transfer processes. Along with the development of computer industry and the advancement of numerical methods, solid foundation in both hardware and software has been established to study the processes by using numerical simulation methods, which play important roles in the ways of extending research topics, reducing research costs, discovering new phenomena, and developing new technologies. Methods for solving ancillary equations such as transport and diffusion are also quite relevant. The expressed intention of this issue is the dissemination of information relating to the development refinement and application of numerical and experimental techniques for solving problems in fluids.
