SPH (Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics) for Coastal and Ocean Engineering

Coastal Engineering Journal

Due to their mesh-free Lagrangian features, particle methods provide a substantial potential for simulations of free-surface fluid flows, which are characterized by violent motion of surface wave in coastal and ocean engineering. During the past two decades a vast number of researches have been conducted on development and application of particle methods, including SPH (Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics) and MPS (Moving Particle Semi-implicit) methods, for various fields of engineering.

A special issue of Coastal Engineering Journal (CEJ) will be dedicated to papers that illustrate the state-of-the-art of developments and applications of particle methods for coastal and ocean engineering.

Submission Guidelines

All the prospective authors are invited to submit a one-page-abstract of their paper in PDF format by 1st of January, 2018. The abstract should include title, list of authors with affiliations and summary of the full paper within 400 words (no figures). Please submit your abstract to before January 1, 2018. The corresponding author will be notified of abstract screening result and requested to submit a full paper by 1st of June, 2018. Please note that all the submitted full papers go through the same review process as other CEJ papers and some papers may be rejected depending on the review results. We look forward to receiving your excellent papers.
