Multiphysics Modeling

Series Editors: Jochen Bundschuh, Mario César Suárez Arriaga

Book Series Editors: Jochen Bundschuh (University of Applied Sciences, Karlsruhe, Germany & Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm , Sweden) and Mario Cesar Suarez Arriaga (Private Consultant, Morelia, Mexico).

The book series addresses novel mathematical and numerical techniques with an interdisciplinary focus that cuts across all fields of science, engineering and technology. A

unique collection of worked problems provide understanding of complicated coupled

phenomena and processes, its forecasting and approaches to problem-solving for a

diverse group of applications in physical, chemical, biological, geoscientific, medical

and other fields. The series responds to the explosively growing interest in numerical

modeling of coupled processes in general and its expansion to ever more sophisticated

physics. Examples of topics in this series include natural resources exploration and

exploitation (e.g. water resources and geothermal and petroleum reservoirs), natural

disaster risk reduction (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis), evaluation and

mitigation of human-induced phenomena as climate change, and optimization of

engineering systems (e.g. construction design, manufacturing processes).

Numerical modeling is the process of obtaining approximate solutions to problems of scientific and/or engineering interest. The book series addresses novel mathematical and numerical techniques with an interdisciplinary emphasis that cuts across all fields of science, engineering and technology. It focuses on breakthrough research in a richly varied range of applications in physical, chemical, biological, geoscientific, medical and other fields in response to the explosively growing interest in numerical modeling in general and its expansion to ever more sophisticated physics. The goal of this series is to bridge the knowledge gap among engineers, scientists, and software developers trained in a variety of disciplines and to improve knowledge transfer among these groups involved in research, development and/or education.

This book series offers a unique collection of worked problems in different fields of engineering and applied mathematics and science, with a welcome emphasis on coupling techniques. The book series fills a need for up-to-date information on numerical modeling.

Faster computers and newly developed or improved numerical methods such as boundary element and meshless methods or genetic codes have made numerical modeling the most efficient state-of-art tool for integrating scientific and technological knowledge in the description of phenomena and processes in engineered and natural systems. In general, these challenging problems are fundamentally coupled processes that involve dynamically evolving fluid flow, mass transport, heat transfer, deformation of solids, and chemical and biological reactions.

This series provides an understanding of complicated coupled phenomena and processes, its forecasting, and approaches in problem solving for a diverse group of applications, including natural resources exploration and exploitation (e.g. water resources and geothermal and petroleum reservoirs), natural disaster risk reduction (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis), evaluation and mitigation of human-induced phenomena as climate change), and optimization of engineering systems (e.g. construction design, manufacturing processes).
