Adela Ionescu

University of Craiova Romania

Dr. Adela Ionescu is a lecturer at the University of Craiova, Romania. She received her PhD degree from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest, Romania. Her research focuses on development and implementation of new methods in the qualitative and computational analysis of differential equations and their applications. This includes constructing adequate models for approaching the study of different industrial phenomena from a dynamical system standpoint and also from a computational fluid dynamics standpoint. By its optimizing techniques, the aim of the modeling is to facilitate the high understanding of the experimental phenomena and to implement new methods, techniques, and processes. Currently, Dr. Ionescu is working in developing new analytical techniques for linearizing nonlinear dynamical systems, with subsequent applications in experimental cases. The bifurcation theory and its applications in related fields is also a domain of interest for her. She has published six monographs and few scientific papers in high-impact journals. She is also a member of few scientific international associations and has attended more than 45 international conferences.

This book is the result of a careful selection of contributors in the field of CFD. It is divided into three sections according to the purpose and approaches used in the development of the contributions. The first section describes the "high-performance computing" (HPC) tools and their impact on CFD modeling. The second section is dedicated to "CFD models for local and large-scale industrial phenomena." Two types of approaches are basically contained here: one concerns the adaptation from global to local scale, - e.g., the applications of CFD to study the climate changes and the adaptations to local scale. The second approach, very challenging, is the multiscale analysis. The third section is devoted to "CFD in numerical modeling approach for experimental cases." Its chapters emphasize on the numerical approach of the mathematical models associated to few experimental (industrial) cases. Here, the impact and the importance of the mathematical modeling in CFD are focused on. It is expected that the collection of these chapters will enrich the state of the art in the CFD domain and its applications in a lot of fields. This collection proves that CFD is a highly interdisciplinary research area, which lies at the interface of physics, engineering, applied mathematics, and computer science.
