Special Issue "Bio-inspired Flow"
A special issue of Fluids (ISSN 2311-5521).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 April 2018)
I am pleased to officially invite you to submit your work to the open access journal Fluids (ISSN 2311-5521) which is preparing a Special Issue on “Bio-inspired Flow”. We are seeking high-quality, original research, exploring fundamental flow physics or developing novel computational and experimental methods for bio-inspired locomotion in nature. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Fluid dynamics of flying and swimming, wake structures, vortex dynamics, aero-/hydrodynamics
- Importance of flexibility and surface deformations in flying and swimming, fluid–structure interactions, fluid–body interactions, mechanics, and energetics of bioinspired locomotion
- Novel computation and experimentation technologies for studying bio-inspired flows
- Bio-inspired flow control
In order to ensure that your work is visible and available to a broad spectrum of readers as quickly as possible, the peer review process will be accelerated and all accepted articles will be immediately published online with an assigned DOI number. If you are interested in submitting to this Special Issue, please email me the tentative title of your article.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding this Special Issue. I look forward to hearing from you, and I hope we can welcome you as a contributing author.

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. Fluids 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.
