Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Developing optimization techniques to modify various engineering designs in order to achieve specific aerodynamics and/or heat transfer characteristics have always been a challenging topic. Parametric optimization has utilized various techniques and achieved significant improvement in aerospace component designs. The free surface optimization was difficult and not viable to manufacture due to the complex organic generated shapes. However, additive manufacturing and 3D printing technology development make these organic generated shapes easy to manufacture, achieving superior performance and quality. The method was clearly successful in developing various aerofoils. Adjoint and topology optimization become essential topics in optimization to reduce weight and achieve efficient aerodynamic performance. Nevertheless, the sensitivity of the non-linear equations and the application of multi-objective functions with constraints are challenging to achieve stability and global optimization. We invite the researcher to submit their work that contribute in solving the various optimization challenges for different designs related to aerospace engineering.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2400 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.
