Special Issue "Turbulence Simulation and Advanced Theoretical, Experimental, and Computational Method Development Relevant to External Aerodynamics, Separation, and Transitional Flows"
A special issue of Aerospace (ISSN 2226-4310).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 July 2019
Simulation of turbulent flows is an interdisciplinary research field that brings together development and knowledge in conjunction with mathematical and computational physics, numerical methods, computer science, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), combustion, experimental methods, engineering fluid mechanics, and engineering applications. Since there is no ultimate solution for modeling complex turbulent flow problems, therefore, the present Special Issue is interested in recent theoretical, experimental, and computational method developments relevant to external aerodynamics, separation, and transitional flows. Advanced and new closure models for the solution of unsteady and stationary Reynolds- and Favre-Averaged Navier-Stokes (URANS/RANS, UFANS/FANS) equations, the solution of Partially-Averaged Navier-Stokes (PANS) equations for turbulence, Reynolds Stress Models (RSM), classical and Implicit Large Eddy Simulation techniques (LES/ILES), Detached Eddy Simulations (DES)-coupling RANS and LES models, hybrid approaches, and computationally expensive Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) are particularly welcome. The development of anisotropic turbulence models for separation flows, as well as the theoretical and practical aspects of the development of Galilean invariant transitional closure models, is of central interest to the current Special Issue. It is important note that the Galilean invariance of transitional models is a challenging subject nowadays. Authors are also encouraged to focus on complex three-dimensional turbulent flow problems, which involve the application of validation and verification techniques; accordingly, the quantification of theoretical and experimental uncertainties can be addressed.

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 550 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.
