The special issue on fluid mechanics and green materials processing covers research in sustainable energy, green technology, and environmental sciences. It focuses on recent development and research studies in the area of green materials, fluid flow, and computational fluid dynamics related to green energy applications. Green energy is referred to the energy that is produced from renewable energy resources such as solar, wind, biomass, hydropower, geothermal, and tidal. The papers may present novel analytical, numerical or experimental findings within the context of fluid mechanics or green materials processing.

Interesting topics considered are including but not limited to the following:
1) Numerical modelling in fluid mechanics such as computational fluid dynamics analysis, fluid structure interaction, multiphase flow; 
2) Experimental investigations in fluid mechanics such as Laser-Doppler-Velocimetry, hot film and hot wire anemometry, Particle-Image-Velocimetry, etc; 
3) Environmental fluid mechanics such as transport and dispersion processes in natural fluid flows; 
4) Green materials development such as batteries, supercapacitor, fuel cells, solar cells, hydrogen storage, thermoelectric; 
5) Emerging material for efficient sustainable energy and environment devices.

  • A Study on the Strength Surplus Coefficient of Cement
  • Abstract This study considers P.O42.5 cement from different sources and evaluates the related surplus coefficient (defined as the proportionality factor linking the measured compressive strength value of the cement after 28 days to the “standard” value of cement strength). The needed tests have been conducted using a mixer, a pressure testing machine, a flexural testing machine, a vibrating table a ramming rod, a feeder and a metal ruler. The average value of the measured cement strength surplus coefficient of cement produced by five distinct cement manufacturers has been found to be 1.16. These results can be used as the basis to… More
