Paradigm shift of CFD toward CFC

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Recent progress of numerical methods for simulating flows coupled with thermo-physical and thermo-chemical problems is surveyed and the development in our group is introduced. Our numerical methods are based on the preconditioning method coupled with mathematical models of thermo-physical properties and the models of chemical events such as chemical reaction, nucleation, condensation, coagulation, phase change and so on. We defined the new CFD field as "Computational Fluid Chemistry(CFC)". As current numerical examples, applications of our numerical method to supercritical carbon dioxide and water problems with phase change which are expected to use for fabricating nano-scale polymer and metal particles are introduced. Finally, a paradigm shift of CFD toward CFC is addressed.
