Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue on “Aeroengine” aims to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art and the main challenges in the field of aeroengines technology. This Special Issue will include original and review research manuscripts associated with the main innovation and technological advancements in science and technology targeting (but not limited) the efficient operation and optimization of aeroengines, with the use of numerical/computational analysis and/or experimental methods.

Particular emphasis will be provided on original manuscripts targeting the achievement of ACARE (Advisory Council for Aviation Research and innovation in Europe) year 2050 targets regarding fuel consumption and pollutant emissions reduction and the fulfillment of the SRIA (Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda) key challenges towards the design of efficient, safe and environmentally friendly aeroengines. Last but not least, the Special Issue “Aeroengine” strongly encourages the submission of original manuscripts addressing other challenging topics such as the ones related with hypersonic propulsion concepts and configurations for future aeroengine applications.

The context of the Special Issue welcomes full research articles and review manuscripts that will make considerable contribution in the following topics:

  • Innovative cycles and engine core concepts
  • Aeroengine noise
  • Intake aerodynamics
  • Cooling technologies
  • Turbine and compressor blade aerodynamics
  • Measurement techniques and test rigs for aeroengines
  • Combustor chambers design and technologies for aeroengines
  • Specific fuel consumption reduction technologies      
  • Waste heat exploitation and management
  • Aeroengine performance
  • On board diagnostics and control
  • Hypersonic propulsion
  • Aeroengines for UAV applications
  • Aeroengine materials and structures
  • Aeroengine components design and optimization
  • Alternative fuels for aeroengines
  • Aeroengine integration to future aircraft concepts

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. Aerospace is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
