Wind tunnel testing has always played a key role in the design, testing, and optimization of fluidic components ranging from aircraft wings to compressor blades, from understanding nature-inspired bird flight to hypersonic reentry of manned vehicle returning from off-planetary missions. Today, wind tunnel testing continues to have a critical role in numerous sectors of society: Aerospace, automotive, renewable energies, etc. With the advent of higher computing power, wind tunnels and wind tunnel testing were at the brink of abandonment. However, as our knowledge and understanding of fluidic phenomena grew, we realized that flow interactions and phenomena are even more complex than once thought and that a synergetic numerical and experimental approach is key to unlocking the fundamental physics.

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 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 1000 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.
