Computer simulations are used to study mass transfer from a stationary composite cylinder---made of an inner, initially loaded, core and an outer-coating semipermeable shell---subjected to a crossflow. The transition from steady to unsteady laminar flow regime alters the released solute spatial distribution and the mass transfer efficiency (Sherwood number), which is found to depend explicitly on the shell solute permeability. The cylinder internal structure and the initial condition considered… 
Numerical investigation of ventilated cavitating flow in the wake of a circular cylinder
The characteristics of ventilated cavitating flow behind a circular cylinder is investigated by numerical simulation and the cavity interface is captured by the coupled level-set and volume of fluid
Mass transfer from a sheared spherical rigid capsule
Solute mass transfer from a spherical fluid-filled rigid capsule subjected to shear flow is studied numerically, while considering unsteady, continuous, and nonuniform boundary conditions on its
Numerical method to characterise capsule membrane permeability for controlled drug delivery
A novel method to characterise capsule membrane permeability to solute molecules by an inverse approach is proposed and is easy to use and determines correctly the permeability of capsule membranes for controlled drug release and absorption applications.

Two-dimensional simulation of unsteady heat transfer from a circular cylinder in crossflow
The heat transfer from the surface of a circular cylinder into a crossflow has been computed using a two-dimensional model, for a range of Reynolds numbers from Re=200 to 15550. The boundary-layer
Analytical modeling for heat transfer in sheared flows of nanofluids.
A model for the enhancement of the heat flux by spherical and elongated nanoparticles in sheared laminar flows of nanofluids, demonstrating a potential increase of theheat flux far beyond the Maxwell-Garnett limit for the spherical nanoparticles.
Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer from a Cylinder Between Parallel Planes
An integral approach is employed to investigate the effects of blockage on fluid flow and heat transfer from a circular cylinder confined between parallel planes. The integral form of the

Abstract. An algorithm is proposed to implement unsteady jump boundary conditions in the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). This is useful for dealing with problems of mass transfer across membranes
Forced convection heat transfer correlations for flow in pipes, past flat plates, single cylinders, single spheres, and for flow in packed beds and tube bundles
Previously obtained experimental heat transfer data have been collected and are illustrated along with minor variations of the standard correlations. Analysis of data for heat transfer in randomly
