Advances in Modeling and Simulation of Complex Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow
Heat transfer and fluid flow are fundamental phenomena in nature and engineering. Many aspects in production and daily life are closely related to heat transfer and fluid flow processes. Modeling and simulation of heat transfer and fluid flow are significant for a wide range of scientific and industrial applications at various spatial and temporal scales, with increased interests in recent years.
Along with the development of computer industry and the advancement of numerical methods, significant advances have been witnessed in modeling and simulation of heat transfer and fluid flow. Solid foundation in both hardware and software has been established to study the processes because of its importance in reducing production costs, discovering new phenomena and developing new technologies, etc. However, accurate modeling and efficient, robust simulation of complex heat transfer and fluid flow still remain challenging. Multi-disciplinary research effort is a clear and general trend for the modeling and simulation of heat transfer and fluid flow, such as 'multi'-modeling, advanced 'multi'-algorithms, heterogeneous parallel computing with 'multi'-hardware, 'multi'-application, etc.
The proposed symposium aims to bring together researchers to highlight the current developments of heat transfer and fluid flow both in theory and computational methods, to exchange the latest research ideas, and to promote further collaborations in the community. We invite investigators to contribute to this special issue with original research articles as well as comprehensive review articles addressing the recent advances and/or challenges in mathematical and numerical modeling, algorithm, and computation of complex heat transfer and fluid flow. Only the influential work will be considered in this symposium.
