Open Engineering/Call for Papers/Computational Fluid Dynamics for Engineering Design

Posted By: Marek Domanski
Date:Wed, 19 Nov 2014, 12:07 p.m.

We would like to invite you to consider submitting a paper to the topical issue of Open Engineering. Open Engineering (formerly Central European Journal of Engineering) is a peer-reviewed, electronic-only open access journal published by De Gruyter Open, a part of 265-years old De Gruyter scientific publishing group. The topic of special issue is:

Computational Fluid Dynamics for Engineering Design

In order to reduce time-to-market modern Engineering Designers are increasingly using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in their project development cycle. Albeit CFD has being steadily expanding into engineering design offices only around 30 000, out of 1 million mechanical engineers who are daily involved in design, are routinely using CFD. It is a responsibility of the academia, research centers, and top industrial companies of every size to help demonstrate the advantages of CFD technology for the product development cycle.

This special issue will present a set of high-quality papers dealing with the use of CFD for the design of mechanical engineering components and systems. Diverse topics will be presented, dealing with: optimization of heat and fluid flow; multi-physics computational techniques; new algorithms; description of best practices for mechanical design using CFD; multi-processing and high performing computing; and from nano to macro scale applications.

This special issue will be more focused on the applications instead of software development. The papers should not merely present a short description, of a successful in-house application relating CFD to mechanical engineering design, but instead they should provide enough level of detail for that, for similar problems, engineers can find their path into this technology, i.e. free of commercialism. The test-cases should help identifying bottlenecks, and also positive assets, of this technology. Every submitted paper should also provide a detailed analysis of the state-of-the-art in its specific area of application. Conclusions must be drawn regarding the specific test-case presented and also by defining general design guidelines for this field. Computational costs should be described, in particular when they are higher than typical off-the-shelve computers routinely available in companies.
