About the book
This book discusses the latest research and findings on the complexity of flow; vortex dynamics. Vortex characteristics are important in many aspects of our lives, from blood circulation in the arteries to the high-speed jet. Flow control and manipulation of vortices have been used to reduce drag for large tanker resulting in billions of dollars in savings. The effective smoke management system has to be put in place for critical areas to ensure the safety of people, for example in a very large shopping complex or a large airport. Advanced computational and cloud-computing facilities have contributed significantly to large-scale simulation projects. Therefore, validations could be performed for larger windows of study so that it can now cover the entire e.g. central business district (CBD) for urban heat island study or land-ocean interactions. The book comprises of different areas where vortex dynamics is important, its generation, evolution, interactions with other motions and finally the ways it can be controlled.
