CFD2018-The 26th Annual Conference of the Computational Fluid Dynamics Society of Canada

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

CFD2018

The 26th Annual Conference of the Computational Fluid Dynamics Society of Canada

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

June 10 – 12, 2018

 

 

Scope of the Conference

Rapid advances in computing technology have made CFD an increasingly important tool for predicting and analyzing fluid flow and heat and mass transfer, with applications to mechanical, aerospace, civil, and chemical engineering. CFD is also an important research tool in water resources, oceanography, atmospheric environment, and boundary-layer meteorology. CFD2018 features the following two themes:

Theme I:   Computational Fluid Dynamics and Numerical Heat Transfer (oriented towards engineering flows);

Theme II:  Computational Environmental Flows and Transport Phenomena (oriented towards environmental flows: water resources and atmospheric sciences).

Contributions from all sectors are solicited, across the full spectrum of CFD research and applications including, but not restricted to:

 

Theme I:

  •  Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics
  •  Automotive Engineering
  •  Algorithms
  •  Bio-fluid Mechanics
  •  CFD Education
  •  Chemical Reacting Flows and Combustion
  •  Fluid-Structure Interactions
  •  Heat and Mass Transfer
  •  Industrial Applications
  •  Mesh Generation
  •  Multi-phase Flows
  •  Porous Media
  •  Non-Newtonian Flows
  •  Turbulence and Turbulence Modeling

Theme II:

  • Atmospheric Environment and Sciences
  • Boundary-layer Meteorology
  • Environmental Flow
  • Environmental Transport Phenomena
  • Hydraulics
  • Hydrology and Water Resources
  • Oceanography
  • Wind Engineering

 

Journal Special Issues

Corresponding to the two themes, selected papers will be invited for publication in special issues with the following two journals:

(1)     International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat & Fluid Flow

http://www.emeraldinsight.com/journal/hff

(2)     Physics and Chemistry of the Earth

https://www.journals.elsevier.com/physics-and-chemistry-of-the-earth
