International Journal of CFD Case Studies - Volume 5

NAFEMS International Journal of CFD Case Studies

Volume 5, April 2006

ISSN 1462-236X

There is a very wide selection of topics demonstrating the increasing applicability of CFD to, industrially relevant, flow analysis. Papers at the large-scale, nuclear reactors and Pelton turbines, and at the small-scale of flow simulation, micro-jet CVD and micro-fluidics, are represented. Papers on Lattice-Boltzmann and turbulence modelling methods are complemented by papers discussing fluid-solid interaction and flow in extrusion processes. It is hoped that the diversity of topics and the approaches used by the authors will be of benefit to readers from the wider NAFEMS community

In my previous Journal editorial I mentioned the goal of encouraging wider participation, especially from overseas members; this edition is the first step to making the Journal truly International. The many International groups within NAFEMS are warmly encouraged to participate by sending their CFD papers forpeer review and publication (details at the end of the Journal).
Introducing this Journal my grateful thanks are due to Dr Moris Habip for his help and assistance in liasing with the authors in Germany.

Further Details

Each of these case studies has been reviewed by members of the CFD working group to ensure that the paper includes:

  • A full description of the industrial relevance of the case study and why it has been performed;
  • A full description of related experimental or analytical data, together with statements as to their quality and accuracy;
  • A description of the CFD model which allows the interested reader to fully appreciate how it simulates the given industrial case;
  • The CFD model is detailed covering the flow physics, geometry, meshing, boundary conditions, fluid properties and the solving processes;
  • A set of results are presented and discussed to facilitate the reader’s appreciation that the work has been performed well and to a high standard.

Any Journal is only as good as the papers it publishes, so the Journal needs contributors who see the importance and benefit of having their work published and used by fellow engineers. Engineers are by nature supportive of colleagues, and authoring a case study paper for the Journal gives senior engineers an opportunity to pass on their hard won knowledge and experience, and in some sense “set the standard” of practice in the field. The Journal publishes CFD case study papers, i.e. investigations, simulations and validation exercises in accordance with CFD best practice guidelines. Original papers covering either traditional CFD, multi-phase flows, combustion and topics such as parallel computing, immersed boundary methods, DNS, LES, FSI, LBM, DEM, etc. are welcomed, book reviews and letters to the Editor are also acceptable.

Potential contributors are welcome to contact the editor, Professor Don McGlinchey at to discuss any aspect of the Journal and the process, from authoring to review to publication. Further details are available here.
