New Special Topic: Directions in computational physics-Selected papers from a symposium honoring Parviz Moin upon his 60th birthday
Physics of Fluids is pleased to announce a special topic section dedicated to Professor Parviz Moin upon his 60th birthday. This special topic features selected contributions from the symposium Directions in Computational Flow Physics held in San Diego, California, October 12-14 2012. The papers cover blood flows, electrokinetic flows, shock-interface dynamics, suspension dynamics, and turbulence. Jonathan Freund served as Guest Editor and worked with Physics of Fluids Editor John Kim to produce this section. The partial issue is now available to view online; the full issue will publish in November 2013.
