Latest review

First review round: 33.9 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

A reviewer probably did not read our manuscript but just showed general opinions since there are not any specific comments on our manuscript. There would be another possibility that the comments were made for the other paper review and they were used again as the present review without reading our paper. Another reviewer posed just some short specific comments only for the definition of Nusselt number. Besides, the reviewer misunderstood it. An editor did not check these reviewers' comments carefully and judged the manuscript did reach the required quality of the standard journal. This was the most terrible experience that I have ever had. For this unfair decision, I sent emails several times to the editor, but I have not received any replies from him at all.
