About the book
Modeling and simulation (M&S) are useful tools in many engineering industries providing clear insights into complex systems and solving real-world problems safely and efficiently. This book presents a collection of chapters on selected models in engineering together with their computer simulations. Areas of interests are models in computational physics (solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, contact mechanics, electromagnetism), chemistry and biology.
There are four main topics:
1) Modeling in engineering - with more details on models and less (but some) on computer simulations;
2) Computer simulations in engineering - with more details on computer simulations and less on models;
3) Large scale simulations - parallel computing including vectorizations;
4) Engineering computational mathematics - with the explanation of basic or advanced numerical methods.
The main aim of contributions is a clear description of studied models together with details of computational techniques.
Authors are advised to use either engineering of mathematical language in their formulations. High-quality pictures, graphs, and tables are expected as outputs of simulation algorithms.
