Computational Heterogeneous Catalysis Engineering: Common Pain Points and Practical Study Approaches proposes the O.P.T.I.M.I.S.T. protocol as an effective tool for computational catalysis used through the Computational Catalysis Canvas or CCC. O.P.T.I.M.I.S.T is a general protocol for computational catalysis study and the acronym stands for Objective(s), Parameter(s), Technique(s), Inquiry, Modeling cycle, Interpretation, Speculation, Teaching. CCC acts as a fine-tuning tool for the setup of the simulation of the catalytic system through the iterative nature of both CCC and O.P.T.I.M.I.S.T. The book consists of three parts starting with (1) easy-to-catch content on the history and the fundamentals of heterogeneous catalysis engineering, followed by (2) theory and computational tools, and (3) the introduction to the O.P.T.I.M.I.S.T. practical protocol for computational catalysis study together with the computational catalysis canvas. Part 1 starts with a detailed history of catalysis, followed by the fundamentals of heterogeneous catalysts that include but are not limited to the components in heterogeneous catalysis, the catalytic properties classification, and the 7-step heterogeneous catalytic reaction mechanism, acting as the starting point that guides you on a path to a heterogenous catalysis study. Part 2 discusses the theoretical techniques, e.g., density functional theory (DFT) from the root of the theory including its history up to the core of the usage of this theory for the computational study of catalytic materials. In addition, it presents the most updated trend on the use of artificial intelligence based on the techniques in machine learning, e.g., artificial neural network (ANN). This part summarizes all the tools used nowadays for the computational study of heterogeneous catalysts. Part 3 explains how the O.P.T.I.M.I.S.T. protocol was developed, where the protocol stands for, and that the heart of O.P.T.I.M.I.S.T. is the iterative process that carves the computational study. The protocol is summarized into a 1-page Computational Catalysis Canvas (CCC), which acts as a cross-checking sheet before starting a simulation. The 15 case studies and the end of the book apply the O.P.T.I.M.I.S.T. protocol and the CCC to real research work.

Fractional-Order Modelling of Fluid Flow and Transport Phenomena focuses on mathematical and numerical aspects of fractional-order modeling in fluid flow and transport phenomena. It covers fundamental concepts, advancements, and practical applications, including modeling development, numerical solutions, and convergence analysis for both time and space fractional order models. Various types of flows are explored, such as single- and multi-phase flows in porous media, involving different fluid types like Newtonian, non-Newtonian, nanofluids, and ferrofluids. This book serves as a comprehensive reference on fractional-order modeling of fluid flow and transport phenomena, offering a single resource that is currently unavailable. Fractional-order modeling has gained traction in engineering and science, particularly in fluid dynamics and transport phenomena. However, its mathematical and numerical advancements have progressed relatively slowly compared to other aspects. Therefore, this book emphasizes the fractional-order modeling of fluid flow and transport phenomena to bridge this gap. Each chapter in the book delves into a specific topic closely related to the others, ensuring a cohesive and self-contained structure. Detailed explanations are provided to aid comprehension, supplemented by both mathematical and physical interpretations as necessary. The book incorporates the latest findings in the field. The intended audience for this book includes engineering researchers, graduate students, scientists, and industry professionals working in fluid dynamics, pure/applied mathematics, porous media, reservoir simulation, and numerical analysis.
