Transport Phenomena in Engineering Problems: CFD-Based Computational Modeling

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 229)


Computational Fluid Dynamics is a popular modeling approach which utilizes numerical methods and computer simulations to solve and analyze problems that involve transport phenomena in fluid flows. CFD-based models demonstrate high versatility and capability of dealing with a wide range of engineering problems. This chapter presents two examples of CFD-based computational modeling successfully applied for different fields of engineering: particle engineering by drying processes and thermal management.
