Proceedings of a May 2008 international conference held at The New Forest, UK, and organized by the Wessex Institute of Technology, UK, and Dalhousie U., Canada. Forty-seven contributions are organized into sections on computational methods in fluid mechanics, environmental fluid mechanics, experimental versus simulation methods, multiphase flow, hydraulics and hydrodynamics, heat and mass transfer, industrial applications, and wave studies. A sampling of topics: an inverse approach for airfoil design, stability of meridionally-flowing grounded abyssal currents in the ocean, macroscopic conservation equation based model for surface tension driven flow, new ways of fluidization in a centrifugal field, analytical investigation of ice floe drift in the marginal ice zone, numerical simulations of variable density starting jets, boiler safety improvement for safety controls utilizing flow measurement for input, and long axisymmetrical waves in a viscous ocean around a circular island. The U.S. office of WIT Press is Computational Mechanics.It is seen that the numerical algorithm of the LBM is relatively simpler compared with conventional Navier-Stokes methods. ... The FD code numerically solves the 2D Navier-Stokes equation in stream function-vorticity formulation given by 2 2 2 anbsp;...
