Nonlinear Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer

Call for Papers

In order to stimulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and other related physical phenomena, it is necessary to describe the associated physics in mathematical terms. Nearly all the physical phenomena of interest are obtained by principles of conservation and are expressed in terms of nonlinear partial or ordinary differential equations expressing these principles. For example, the momentum equations express the conservation of linear momentum; the energy equation expresses the conservation of total energy. This special issue is focused on nonlinear analysis and numerical simulation of typical conservation equations modelling physical phenomena with respect to fluid flow and heat transfer.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand the nonlinear problems arising from fluid flow, heat transfer, and other related physical phenomena. All the submissions are expected to have original ideas and new approaches. Papers on newly emerging areas of fluid mechanics and heat transfers are especially welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Boundary layer flows
  • Nanofluids dynamics
  • Reactive flows
  • Hydromagnetic flows
  • Physiological flows
  • Thermodynamics analysis of fluid flows
  • Newtonian and non-Newtonian flows
  • Nonlinear heat transfer in solids
