Dr. Jianping Zhu received his Ph.D. in applied mathematics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1990. He was on the faculty of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Mississippi State University from 1990 to 2001, and was chair of the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mathematics at the University of Akron from 2001 – 2005. Since 2005, he has been chair of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Texas at Arlington. His research interests are in the areas of numerical algorithms, computational simulations, and scientific computing. He received the second place award in the 1990 IBM Supercomputing Competition and the Intel Research Fellowship Award in 1992. He has written one book, edited two books, published over 80 refereed papers, and made 120 conference and colloquium presentations in 21 countries. He also served on the editorial boards of six international journals and numerous conference organizing committees. Over the last two decades, his research and education projects have been funded by over $6 million in grants from the USA federal agencies and industrial partners.

The purpose of this book is to introduce researchers and graduate students to a broad range of applications of computational simulations, with a particular emphasis on those involving computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations. The book is divided into three parts: Part I covers some basic research topics and development in numerical algorithms for CFD simulations, including Reynolds stress transport modeling, central difference schemes for convection-diffusion equations, and flow simulations involving simple geometries such as a flat plate or a vertical channel. Part II covers a variety of important applications in which CFD simulations play a crucial role, including combustion process and automobile engine design, fluid heat exchange, airborne contaminant dispersion over buildings and atmospheric flow around a re-entry capsule, gas-solid two phase flow in long pipes, free surface flow around a ship hull, and hydrodynamic analysis of electrochemical cells. Part III covers applications of non-CFD based computational simulations, including atmospheric optical communications, climate system simulations, porous media flow, combustion, solidification, and sound field simulations for optimal acoustic effects.
