About this book

This book focuses on CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) techniques and the recent developments and research works in energy applications. It is devoted to the publication of basic and applied studies broadly related to this area. The chapters present the development of numerical methods, computational techniques, and case studies in the energy applications. Also, they offer the fundamental knowledge for using CFD in energy applications through new technical approaches. Besides, they describe the CFD process steps and provide benefits and issues for using CFD analysis in understanding the flow complicated phenomena and its use in the design process. The best practices for reducing errors and uncertainties in the CFD analysis are further described. The book reveals not only the recent advances and future research trends of CFD Techniques but also provides the reader with valuable information about energy applications. It aims to provide the readers, such as engineers and PhD students, with the fundamentals of CFD prior to embarking on any real simulation project. Additionally, engineers supporting or being supported by CFD analysts can take advantage from the information of the book’s different chapters.

About the authors

Prof. Dr. Eng. Zied Driss
Dr. Driss is Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at National School of Engineers of Sfax (ENIS). He received his Engineering Diploma in 2001, his Master Degree in 2003, his PhD in 2008 and his HDR in 2013 in Mechanical Engineering from ENIS at University of Sfax, Tunisia. He is interested on the development of numerical and experimental techniques for solving problems in mechanical engineering and energy applications. Also, his research has been focused on the interaction between Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Computational Structure Dynamics (CSD) codes. As a result of his research, he is principal or co-principal investigator on more than 80 papers in peer-reviewed journals, more than 150 communications to international conferences, 10 books and 40 books chapters. Also, he is the main inventors of 2 patents. Currently, Dr. Driss is a Chief of Project in the Laboratory of Electromechanical Systems (LASEM), an Editorial in Chief for two international journals, an Editorial Board Member and reviewer for different international journals, an Editor for different books, a General Chair of two bi-annual international conferences and an active member in different national and international associations.

Prof. Dr. Brahim Necib
Dr. B.Necib is a Professor and Head of Research in Mechanical Engineering Department, Laboratory of mechanics at the University of Mentouri Constantine, Algeria. He received his Philosophy Doctor (Ph. D) and his Master in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering at Purdue University W. Lafayette Indiana, USA in 1987 and 1982 respectively. He got his Engineer degree in Mechanical Engineering from the National Polytechnic School of Algiers, Algeria in 1980. His work interest is on the development of numerical and experimental techniques for solving practical problems in mechanical and aeronautical engineering. His research work is focused on the aerodynamics, aero elasticity, propulsion and the analysis of static and dynamic discrete and continuum structures as well as the composite and the new smart materials using the finite elements numerical methods. As a result of his research work he is the main supervisor of 10 doctors of state, 30 magiters in mechanical engineering, 10 masters of sciences, 25 engineers of state in mechanics and the principal responsible of 11 national projects of research (CNEPRU). He is the principal authors and co-authors in 20 international and national papers in indexed journals and more than 150 international communications. Also, he is the editor of 02 published bloc notes on «Continuum Mechanics» and «Finite Element Methods». Prof. Necib was the head of the Research Laboratory of Mechanics up to 2008. Actually he is the responsible of research team of “aerodynamics, complex structures and news materials” and he is an active member in many national research commissions and scientific associations.
