The special issue of the Fluid dynamics and Material Processing covers research in sustainable energy, green buildings, and thermal comfort. It focuses on recent development and research studies in the area of green buildings, airflow in buildings, and computational fluid dynamics to achieve thermal comfort.

Interesting topics considered are including but not limited to the following:


1) Numerical modelling of the airflow, multiphase flow

2) CFD of radiant cooling system with different materials

3) CFD of transport and dispersion process of contaminants and pathogens in healthcare facilities

4) CFD of Parking garage ventilation to study the effect of CO and CO2 concentration

5) CFD of smoke prediction and predict the number of jet fans and location to let out the smoke out of the building.

6) CFD in the design of naturally ventilated buildings

7) CFD to predict Outdoor thermal comfort
