The fluid mechanics and heat transfer field has gained significant importance in recent years because its applications are ubiquitous. Recent advancements in experimental techniques make it possible to predict fluid flow and heat transfer behavior in some applications. However, experimental methods cannot reveal all the physical mechanisms behind fluid flow in detail, and they are also cumbersome, time-consuming, and expensive. Therefore, it is necessary to develop theoretical and computational simulation techniques to understand the underlying physics of the fluid flow and heat transfer more clearly. Theoretical analysis often makes several assumptions and is restricted to simple situations. Thus, many scientists focus on developing computational methods to solve fluid flow and heat transfer problems. Numerical simulations are especially beneficial for obtaining detailed information that cannot be revealed from experiments and examining the effect of various physical parameters on fluid flow behavior.
This Special Issue focuses on numerical methods in fluid mechanics and heat transfer, emphasizing its recent advancements and their use in many industrial and academic applications. We welcome manuscripts on new modeling techniques and innovations that address the key issues and inherent difficulties in the simulation of fluid flow and heat transfer systems. Authors can submit manuscripts in, but not limited to, the following research areas:
- Numerical methods and computational techniques in fluid flow, heat, and mass transfer;
- Simulation of fluid flow and heat transfer involving complex boundaries;
- Simulation of multiphase, multicomponent flows;
- Computational methods for biofluid mechanics;
- Numerical methods for nanofluids;
- Numerical methods for solving fluid and flexible structure interaction (FSI) problems;
- Numerical optimization techniques of thermofluid systems;
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques in fluid flow and heat transfer;
- Theoretical approaches for micro- and nanofluidic problems;
- Numerical strategies for solving fluid flow and heat transfer in porous media;
- Solving fluid flow and heat transfer with open-source software;
- Numerical methods for solving multiphysics problems such as MHD;
- Parallel computing techniques, etc.
We invite manuscripts that focus on developing the following computational techniques for simulating fluid flow and heat transfer in the aforementioned applications: conventional methods such as the finite difference method (FDM), finite volume method (FVM), finite element method (FEM), and new, attractive computational methodologies such as the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM), smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH), molecular dynamics, dissipative particle dynamics, etc.
