Aims & Scope

Modeling and Computation for Flow and Transport is an Open Access online journal, which publishes high quality original research articles, reviews, and letters on mathematical modeling, computer simulation, numerical analysis, and other computational aspects of flow and transport phenomena.  The journal is focused on the following topics:  

1.advanced numerical methods for the simulation of subsurface and surface flow and transport, and associated aspects such as discretization, gridding, up-scaling, multi-scale algorithms, optimization, data assimilation, uncertainty assessment, and high performance parallel and grid computing;

2.modeling and simulation of single-phase and multi-phase flow in porous media or in free space, and its applications to earth sciences and engineering;

3.modeling and simulation of subsurface and surface transport and geochemistry, and its application to environmental sciences and engineering;

4. computational thermodynamics of fluids, especially hydrocarbon and other oil reservoir fluids, and its interaction with flow and transport;

5.computational modeling of flow and transport in other fields, such as geological flow/transport in crust and mantle, material flow in supply chain networks, separation processes in chemical engineering, information flow, biotransport, and intracellular protein trafficking, will also be considered.   

The journal establishes a platform for interaction and multidisciplinary collaboration among diverse scientific groups of mathematicians, engineers, chemists, physicists, and geoscientists who share an interest in developing physical models, mathematical formulation and efficient algorithms for better understanding the flow and transport phenomena.

Modeling and Computation for Flow and Transport, a peer-reviewed journal, is an important and reliable source of current information on developments in the field. The emphasis will be on publishing quality papers rapidly and freely available to researchers worldwide.
