Comparing to the traditional realm of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), developing computational methods for flow systems coupled with multiple physical phenomena and involving multiple spatial scales is extremely challenging and is becoming increasingly important for the current cutting-edge scientific and engineering problems. Comparing to mesh-based methods, particle-based methods rely on a general set of Newton's equations of motion, and different physics can be integrated in a general framework by defining distinct pair-wised interacting "force" at each discrete level of scale. Therefore, it is especially suited for the handling of multi-physics and multi-scale problems.
In the past decade, significant advances have been made in particle-based methods, e.g. SPH, MPM, DPD/SDPD, MPS, and etc. In this Mini-Symposium, we are seeking the participation of colleagues who focus on:
(1) particle-based numerical methods and modeling techniques that tackle fluid problems coupled with multi-phase, cavitation, electric/magnetic field, radiation, gravity or/and other physical phenomena;
(2) particle-based methods that address numerical difficulties in the modeling of flow systems involving multiple scales;
(3) high-performance simulation software or parallelization techniques for particle-based methods featuring multi-physics and multi-scale capabilities.
We are also open to contributions with other relevant topics.
