Call For Papers
Computers & Fluids is multidisciplinary. The term 'fluid' is interpreted in the broadest sense. Hydro- and aerodynamics, high-speed and physical gas dynamics, turbulence and flow stability, multiphase flow, rheology, tribology and fluid-structure interaction are all of interest, provided that computer technique plays a significant role in the associated studies or design methodology.

Applications will be found in most branches of engineering and science: mechanical, civil, chemical, aeronautical, medical, geophysical, nuclear and oceanographic. These will involve problems of air, sea and land vehicle motion and flow physics, energy conversion and power, chemical reactors and transport processes, ocean and atmospheric effects and pollution, biomedicine, noise and acoustics, and magnetohydrodynamics amongst others.

The development of numerical methods relevant to fluid flow computations, computational analysis of flow physics and fluid interactions and novel applications to flow systems and to design are pertinent to Computers & Fluids.

Special Issue on New computational methods for application of nanotechnology in engineering
Submission Date: 2018-06-30

Nanofluids are a new type of heat transfer fluid containing nanoparticles in the size range under 100 nm that are uniformly and stably suspended in a base fluid. Energy transportation of the nanofluid is affected by the properties and dimension of nanoparticles as well as the solid volume fraction. In numerical studies, various models can be utilized to investigate the nanofluid hydrothermal behavior. In this special issue, new computational fluid dynamic (CFD) approaches are presented for predicting nanofluid behavior. Various applications of nanofluid are presented in different field of science such as: mechanical, aerospace, chemical, civil and energy engineering. Papers focus on development of new numerical approaches to show the applications of nanofluids. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following: - New numerical scheme with application to nanofluid - Numerical simulation of nanofluid turbulence flow - Modeling of multi-physical effects on nanofluid behavior (Magnetohydrodynamic, Electrohydrodynamic, acoustic, non-Newtonian, …) - Benchmark solutions for nanofluid flow and heat transfer - Simulation of Nano-encapsulated phase change material (NEPCM) for melting and solidification process - Nanofluid condensation heat transfer - Boiling heat transfer enhancement with nanofluids
