The present issue focuses on fundamentals of combustion processes in aerospace applications, and implementation of relevant technologies. Combustion is a key technology of utilising chemical energy for propulsion. Significant progress has been made in this field in understanding and ability to model combustion, on one hand, and development of innovative technologies on the other hand. The volume seeks to bring together both fundamental and applied papers in order to show how interaction between science and technology can lead to introduction of highly efficient propulsion systems. Examples of specific applications include Turbopropulsion; Solid, Liquid and Hybrid Rocket Motors. Contributions covering prospective technologies, such as Supersonic Combustion Ramjet (SCRJ) engines, and Pulse Detonation engines, are especially welcome. Fundamentals of combustion and fluid dynamics will cover areas such as Turbulent Combustion, Combustion Control, Combustion Instabilities, Pulse Detonation, Combustion Modeling, Atomization and Spray Combustion, Swirling Flows, and others. Of high importance is the issue of material behavior under relevant combustion conditions. Therefore, areas such as propellant combustion, and solid fuel combustion (for hybrid propulsion applications) will be considered. Original and review papers are sought for this volume, which are of theoretical, computational or experimental nature. The papers can also report design methodologies, testing procedures, as well as other relevant issues.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
