This special issue collects selected papers presented at the Third International Conference on Computational Methods for Thermal Problems (ThermaComp 2014, website: www.thermacomp.com) held in Lake Bled, Slovenia, between June 2 and 4, 2014. ThermaComp series aims at bringing together researchers interested in fundamental numerical methods for heat and fluid flow and those who use such methods to solve complex, real life applications. This special issue includes some of the work presented by invited lecturers, other leading scientists in the field and Professor R.W. Lewis award winner.
