Special Issue Call for Papers:

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
  • Smoothed-particle hydrodynamics
  • Direct simulation Monte Carlo
  • Molecular dynamics
  • Relativistic hydrodynamics
  • Multi-particle collision dynamics
  • Hybrid methods

Submission Guidelines
Contributions to this Special Issue must be strictly original papers which have not been submitted or already published earlier.
