Mathematical and Numerical Modeling of Flow and Transport 2013

Call for Papers

Modeling of flow and transport is an essential component of many scientific and engineering applications, with increased interests in recent years. Application areas vary widely and include groundwater contamination, carbon sequestration, air pollution, petroleum exploration and recovery, weather prediction, chemical separation processes, and many others. However, accurate mathematical and numerical simulation of flow and transport remains a challenging topic from many aspects of physical modeling, numerical analysis, and scientific computation. An important step of its numerical solution procedure is to apply advanced discretization methods (e.g., finite elements, finite volumes, and finite differences) to the governing equations. Another important solution step is the design of fast and accurate solvers for the large-scale linear and nonlinear algebraic equation systems that result from discretization. Solution techniques of interest include multiscale algorithms, mesh adaptation, parallel algorithms and implementation, efficient splitting or decomposition schemes, and others.

We invite original research articles as well as review articles describing the recent advances in mathematical and numerical modeling of flow and transport. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Modeling of flow and transport in porous media or in open spaces
  • Thermodynamic modeling and computation of fluid flow and fluid properties
  • Discretization based on advanced finite element, finite volume, or finite different methods
  • A-priori and a-posteriori error estimates in discretizations and decompositions
  • Mutliscale and/or adaptive algorithms and implementation
  • Decomposition methods and parallel computations of flow and transport simulation
  • Heat and mass transfer phenomena in laminar and turbulent flows
  • Flow and transport of Newtonian, non-Newtonian, micropolar, nanofluids, and ferrofluids
  • Applications of flow and transport simulation, including oil reservoir engineering, groundwater hydrology, bioremediation, solid-fluid problems, diffusion in materials, electromagnetic field applications, complex flow phenomena, and others
