Dr. Chaoqun Liu received a BS and MS from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1968 and 1981, respectively. He obtained a Ph.D. from the University of Colorado at Denver, USA, in 1989. He is currently a Tenured and Distinguished Professor and the director of the Center for Numerical Simulation and Modeling at the University of Texas at Arlington, USA. He has worked on high-order direct numerical simulation/large eddy simulation (DNS/LES) for flow transition and turbulence for 33 years. He is the founder and principal contributor of the Liutex method and third-generation vortex definition and identification methods, including Omega, Liutex/Rortex, Modified Liutex-Omega, Liutex-Core-Line methods, Objective Liutex, RS vorticity decomposition, and UTA R-NR velocity gradient tensor decomposition. He is also the founder of Liutex-based new fluid kinematics.

This book contains five chapters detailing significant advances in and applications of new turbulence theory and fluid dynamics modeling with a focus on wave propagation from arbitrary depths to shallow waters, computational modeling for predicting optical distortions through hypersonic flow fields, wind strokes over highway bridges, optimal crop production in a greenhouse, and technological appliance and performance concerns in wheelchair racing. We hope this book to be a useful resource to scientists and engineers who are interested in the fundamentals and applications of fluid dynamics.
