Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

This paper presents an overview of past and current research in computational modelling of micro- and nanofluidic systems with particular focus on recent advances in multiscale modelling. Different mesoscale and hybrid molecular-continuum methods are presented. The contributions of these methods to a broad range of applications, as well as the physical and computational modelling challenges associated with the development of these methods, are also discussed.
