Special Issue "Deicing and Anti-Icing of Aircraft"
A special issue of Aerospace (ISSN 2226-4310).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2020).
Interests: pressure- and temperature-sensitive paint technique; advanced flow diagnostics by luminescent imaging; micro-fiber coating as chemical flow control; ice-phobic coating for anti- and de-icing; unsteady aerodynamics; wind tunnel testing (low-speed, transonic-speed, high-speed, and high Reynolds-number flows); two phase flows; heat transfer in hypersonic flow; fluid-thermal-structure interactions; environmental and energy engineering; biomedical and biological applications
Aircraft icing is still a critical issue in aircraft operations. In recent years, multidisciplinary approaches have been attempted to tackle to this problem. One of the outcomes is the development of icephobic coating; nevertheless, there are many challenges that need to be overcome to fix aircraft icing from a fundamental to application basis. This Special Issue aims to provide an overview of recent advances in deicing and anti-icing of aircraft. Authors are invited to submit full research articles and review manuscripts addressing (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Novel experimental methods to simulation droplet icing, ice accretion and practical applications
- Novel numerical methods in droplet icing, ice accretion, and practical applications
- Icephobic coating
- Hybrid system for deicing and anti-icing of aircrafts

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.
