Various specialist groups around the world have dedicated much computational and experimental resources to the understanding of the challenging and exciting topic of fluid-structure interactions (FSI). FSI’s are prevalent in a wide range of problems in nature and engineering. These include dynamic stall in rotorcraft and wind turbines, micro air vehicles, and flow control. Such flows are characterized by rapid changes in flow circulation, flow separation, and vortices. While much of research in the past decades has focused on the mitigation of adverse FSI effects, recent studies have attempted to achieve aeroelastic benefits using FSI.
This drive to understand has led to many advances in numerical and experimental capabilities within this field. It is these innovations, which provide the motivation behind this Special Issue.
We invite papers addressing both the advances in our fundamental understanding of incompressible FSI phenomena and also the latest in numerical and experimental tools and techniques which are currently being used for this purpose.
Examples of the key areas, which are covered by this Special Issue, include, but are not limited to:
- Animal flight
- Flexible aircraft – conventional/unconventional configurations
- HALE and MALE vehicles
We wish all the researchers active in this field the greatest of luck.

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 1400 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.
