About this Research Topic
Computational fluid dynamics (or CFD) is a branch of fluid mechanics. Different types of numerical techniques and data structures used to examine various problems. Fluid flow (liquid or gas) can be described by the conservation laws for mass, momentum, and energy, which are governed by partial differential equations. In order to solve this problem computationally, it is necessary to replace the partial differential equations with algebraic equations. High-speed supercomputers can be used to achieve better solutions. CFD is applicable to a wide range of engineering problems in various fields of natural science, environment and aerospace engineering, biological engineering, industrial system design, and combustion analysis, etc. Computational Fluid Dynamics provides qualitative and quantitative results for fluids flows through numerical methods, mathematical models and software tools.
This Research Topic encourages scholars to present their latest original research or review articles. The analysis of fluid flows can be based on numerical/analytical simulations or experimental data. Submitted manuscripts may deal with the following topics:
