Time:10:00 am – 11:00 am


Multiscale transport phenomena appear in many fields, such as fluid flows associated with nano/micro-fluidics, re-entry vehicles and vacuum techniques, and heat transfer processes in nano- scale and composite materials. It is a challenging problem for modeling and simulating such processes due to the large spans of temporal and spatial scales as well as large range of physical scenarios. The discrete unified gas kinetic scheme (DUGKS) is a recently developed numerical method for modeling multiscale transport process based on kinetic theory, which has the asymptotic persevering properties and is self-adaptive with the inclusion of transport physics from both continuum (diffusive) and free-molecular (ballistic) regimes in its algorithm development. In this talk we will report the recent progress of the DUGKS for some typical multiscale flows and heat transfer problems.


Prof. Zhaoli Guo received his PhD in Computer Science from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2000. He is now a full Professor in the School of Energy and Power Engineering, and servers as Associate Editors of Science Bulletin and Advance in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics. He received the Distinguished Young Scholar Award from National Natural Science Foundation of China in 2011, and the Chang Jiang Chair Professorship from China’s Ministry of Education in 2014. He was elected as one of the Most Cited Chinese Researchers (in Physics & Astronomy) by the Elsevier Publisher (2014, 2015, 2016).

Prof. Guo’s research focuses on theoretical and numerical modeling of multiscale transport phenomena. He has published two monographs on lattice Boltzmann method, and about 140 papers in peer-reviewed journals with 7100+ citations (Google Scholar).
