Multiphysics Modeling: Numerical Methods and Engineering Applications book cover

Multiphysics Modeling: Numerical Methods and Engineering Applications

Tsinghua University Press Computational Mechanics Series

Multiphysics Modeling describes the basic principles and methods for multiphysics modeling, covering related physics such as structure mechanics, fluid dynamics, heat transfer, electromagnetic field, and noise.

Providing up to date information on basic numerical methods and, critically, the coupling issues specific to each area, the book moves on to consider coupled problems spanning fluid-solid interaction, thermal-stress coupling, fluid-solid-thermal coupling, electromagnetic -solid-thermal-fluid coupling, and structure-noise coupling.

With author team expertise in cutting edge academic research, industrial application and code development, the book covers background theory, algorithms, key technologies and applications for each coupling method as well as exploring real engineering multiphysics problems across areas such as automotive, aerospace and biomedical engineering.

Multiphysics Modeling provides a valuable broad-base of methods and techniques for solving multiphysics problems and is an ideal resource for engineers and researchers tasked with the design and analysis of complex engineering systems.


Engineers and researchers facing multiphysics problems as part of the design, modeling and analysis of complex engineering systems.
