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.

Publishing process

Book initiated and editor appointed

Date completed: November 19th 2019

Applications to edit the book are assessed and a suitable editor is selected, at which point the process begins.

Chapter proposals submitted and reviewed

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: April 26th 2020

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: July 15th 2020

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: September 13th 2020

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
