Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

The combustion research community has pursued investigations into combustion in jet flames for decades. While originally driven by the need to understand practical applications, advances in the science of reacting flows utilizing experimental approaches and numerical modelling have improved our basic understanding. With the many papers generated in the area of jet flame combustion, there is pressing need for papers that survey these niches, with an eye toward highlighting these findings, as well as directing and informing future studies. Papers are sought that review or survey the referenced areas, and/or report on novel studies, related to the broad area of jet flame studies.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 monthly 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 1600 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.
