Since its inception in 1986, the Discrete Simulation of Fluid Dynamics (DSFD) series of conferences represents a premier forum for the computational study of the physics of fluids at large, from macroscopic turbulence, to microfluids all the way down to nanofluids of biological interest.
A distinguishing characteristic of DSFD series of conferences is its focus on unconventional methodologies for the numerical simulation of fluids, based on the underlying microscale dynamics rather than on the discretization of partial differential equations (PDEs) of continuum fluid mechanics. Microscale and kinetic methods represent a viable solution whenever the involved physical phenomena either escape a continuum description, or prove computationally unviable by means of the continuum methods.
This Special Issue aims at collecting selected contributions from the 29th International Conference on the Discrete Simulation of Fluid Dynamics (DSFD 2020). Contributions to this Special Issue will embrace a variety of themes, both theoretical and applied, pertaining to a broad spectrum of fluid phenomena across all scales of motion.
Specifically, the relevant topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
Lattice Boltzmann methods
Discrete velocity methods
Dissipative particle dynamics
Direct simulation Monte Carlo
Multi-particle collision dynamics
Contributions to this Special Issue must be strictly original papers which have not been submitted or already published earlier. All manuscripts should be submitted via the journal’s online submission and peer-review systems at https://www.evise.com/evise/jrnl/jocs. The submission system will be opened from 1st August 2020 until 31st December 2020. When submitting your manuscript please select the article type “SI: DSFD2020”. Please ensure you read the Guide for Authors (https://www.elsevier.com/journals/journal-of-computational-science/1877-7503/guide-for-authors) before writing your manuscript.
