Special Issue "The Application of Numerical Methods and IT Tools to Environment and Safety Engineering"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2021.
Interests: CFD; ventilation; mining hazards; combustion; occupational; air quality; sustainable development; OEE; energy sources
Nowadays, numerical methods and IT tools are more and more commonly used for analysing increasingly complex phenomena and/or physical objects. This also concerns environment and safety engineering. Both of these research areas encompass issues that are very important from scientific and practical perspectives. The application of numerical methods and IT tools to issues pertaining to environmental protection and safety engineering makes it possible to conduct analyses that are usually not feasible under real-world or laboratory conditions. It also allows for the extention of such analyses.
Numerical methods and IT tools can be successfully used for variant analyses of processes related to the formation of environmental threats. Their application facilitates the analysis of a wide range of phenomena that can occur in the natural environment and the working environment.
It is therefore reasonable to publish a Special Issue demonstrating the results of model-based tests related to broadly conceived environmental engineering and safety engineering. Such a Special Issue would provide an excellent opportunity to present the results of analyses by various scientists, especially in terms of using advanced numerical methods and IT tools in the fields of environment and safety engineering.
Published papers will be an excellent source of information on the state of knowledge in the field of environmental and safety engineering. I believe that the papers will also be an inspiration for further research.
The Special Issue is, therefore, a platform to present the state of knowledge on the application of numerical methods and IT tools in environmental and safety engineering from a scientific and practical point of view. In addition to scientific works, papers of a utilitarian nature are also welcome.
Original papers related to the above topics, as well as in general on methodological, numerical, and experimental research, and case studies on the application of numerical methods and IT tools to environment and safety engineering, are welcome.
I hope that the global nature of the scope of this Special Issue will attract researchers and specialists from around the world. I invite all colleagues to publish their original papers in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
