Summary

The special issue on fluid mechanics and green materials processing covers research in sustainable energy, green technology, and environmental sciences. It focuses on recent development and research studies in the area of green materials, fluid flow, and computational fluid dynamics related to green energy applications. Green energy is referred to the energy that is produced from renewable energy resources such as solar, wind, biomass, hydropower, geothermal, and tidal. The papers may present novel analytical, numerical or experimental findings within the context of fluid mechanics or green materials processing.

 
Interesting topics considered are including but not limited to the following:
1) Numerical modelling in fluid mechanics such as computational fluid dynamics analysis, fluid structure interaction, multiphase flow; 
2) Experimental investigations in fluid mechanics such as Laser-Doppler-Velocimetry, hot film and hot wire anemometry, Particle-Image-Velocimetry, etc; 
3) Environmental fluid mechanics such as transport and dispersion processes in natural fluid flows; 
4) Green materials development such as batteries, supercapacitor, fuel cells, solar cells, hydrogen storage, thermoelectric; 
5) Emerging material for efficient sustainable energy and environment devices.

    Computational Fluid Dynamics Simulation of Indoor Air Quality and Thermal Stratification of an Underfloor Air Distribution System (UFAD) with Various Vent Layouts

    Neil Stephen Lopez, Selena Kay Galeos, Brian Raphael Calderon, David Roy Dominguez, Bryan Joseph Uy, Rupesh Iyengar
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.17, No.2, pp. 333-347, 2021, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2021.011213

    Abstract The underfloor air distribution (UFAD) system has not been able to penetrate the residential and commercial air conditioning industry significantly until now. To date, the most notable applications are found in datacenters because of their more demanding thermal stratification and cooling requirements. In addition to highlighting the advantages of the UFAD system over the traditional overhead (OH) system, this study compares various ventilation layouts for a UFAD system. Four different UFAD ventilation layouts are compared and one OH layout. The results show that using multiple swirl-type diffusers creates a more uniform floor-to-knee temperature and less More >

    A Study on the Strength Surplus Coefficient of Cement

    Yuhang Long, Jingyi Wang
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.17, No.1, pp. 181-187, 2021, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2021.011185

    Abstract This study considers P.O42.5 cement from different sources and evaluates the related surplus coefficient (defined as the proportionality factor linking the measured compressive strength value of the cement after 28 days to the “standard” value of cement strength). The needed tests have been conducted using a mixer, a pressure testing machine, a flexural testing machine, a vibrating table a ramming rod, a feeder and a metal ruler. The average value of the measured cement strength surplus coefficient of cement produced by five distinct cement manufacturers has been found to be 1.16. These results can be More >
