Computational Heat and Mass Transfer and Fluid Flow through Complex Passages for Emerging Applications


The progress of emerging engineering devices requires an in-depth knowledge of the transport processes through various complex geometry passages. However, the accuracy and precision of the numerical techniques depend on a range of parameters including geometrical features, discretization scheme, computational grid, and the numerical algorithm. Thus, an important question to answer is to determine an optimal method that provides sufficiently accurate solutions with minimum computational cost.

This special issue focuses on the latest advances in numerical and computational modelling of convective transport phenomena through complex geometry passages. Original research articles as well as review articles on CFD methods and their applications are welcomed in this special issue.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Convection, conduction, and radiation heat transfer as well as their combinations
  • Flow in porous media and its application
  • Special fluids: non-Newtonian fluids, micro- and nanofluids, MHD, PCM, and so on
  • Transitional and turbulent flows
  • Multiphase flows
  • Fluid-structure interactions
  • Advances in numerical methods (FVM, FEM, FDE, LBM, DSMC, MD, etc.)
  • Hybrids numerical methods
  • Meshless techniques
  • High-performance computation, parallel processing, and cloud computing
  • Validation, verification, and uncertainty quantification of commercial as well as open source software
  • Application of numerical modelling in renewable energies, meteorology, agriculture, aerospace, civil, chemical, mechanical, corrosion, material, ocean, offshore, pipeline, manufacturing, and biomedical engineering
