International Journal of Energy Technology and Policy (IJETP)
Call for papers: Special Issue on “Computational Fluid Dynamics Simulations in Energy Technologies and Processes”
Guest Editor: Prof. Viorel Badescu, Polytechnic University of Bucharest, Romania.
The most efficient usage of energy resources has been challenging both the energy industry and academia for more than two hundred years. It is often difficult, if not impossible, to experiment with real large-scale or expensive energy production systems, to determine improved or optimal solutions. Also, analytical models of energy technology problems can only partially explain and solve real-world problems and this is usually only achieved with significant simplifications to the models, which make them less representative of the real world.
However, with advances in computing, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation has been widely used in recent years to model and solve energy related problems. Advanced simulation modelling techniques have been developed and widely employed in energy processes simulations such as the finite element or boundary element methods. Applications of CFD simulation vary widely and present a fascinating range of scenarios and techniques.
Hence, this special issue of IJETP is intended to present the development and application of CFD simulation in energy related studies. The papers may present the development of CFD simulation techniques, CFD simulation methodologies and case studies in the application of simulation, to solve all types of real-world energy problems.
