Special Issue on: "Innovative Modelling and Simulation Techniques in Environmental Technology and Management"

Guest Editor: Tzu-Yi Pai, Chaoyang University of Technology, Taiwan

Modelling and simulation techniques are widely applied in many fields, including environmental technology and management. Over the past few decades, many environmental problems have been realized, predicted, designed, controlled, and solved by adopting modelling and simulation techniques such as those indicated below. Recently, innovative algorithms have also been developed and applied, also included below.

Therefore, this special issue calls for papers addressing research on innovative modelling and simulation techniques and applications in environmental technology and management and related areas. We welcome any study in novel modelling and simulation techniques or in innovative applications of existing methodologies.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics, applied to environmental technology anf management, include but are not limited to:
  • Chaos theory
  • Fractal theory
  • Particle swarm optimization (PSO)
  • Ant colony optimisation (ACO)
  • Clonal selection algorithms (CSA)
  • Numerical analysis
  • Artificial neural network
  • Fuzzy logic
  • Monte Carlo simulation
  • Grey system theory
  • Genetic algorithms
  • Simulated annealing algorithms
