  • Is the culmination of 25 years of work on the multi-scale simulation of different multi-phase chemical processes
  • Highlights transdisciplinarity and the issues from the perspective of complexity science
  • Contributed by outstanding scientists from Chinese Academy of Sciences

Multiscale modeling is becoming essential for accurate, rapid simulation in science and engineering. This book presents the results of three decades of research on multiscale modeling in process engineering from principles to application, and its generalization for different fields. This book considers the universality of meso-scale phenomena for the first time, and provides insight into the emerging discipline that unifies them, meso-science, as well as new perspectives for virtual process engineering.

Multiscale modeling is applied in areas including:

  • multiphase flow and fluid dynamics
  • chemical, biochemical and process engineering
  • mineral processing and metallurgical engineering
  • energy and resources
  • materials science and engineering
