Special Issue Information

Dear fluid mechanics community,

The comprehensive use of fluid mechanics has always been of key relevance for the development of human beings though numerous applications from the classical field of engineering, with its different sub-disciplines, to physics or even to medicine by modelling simple or complex flows, including Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids. The progressive implementation of new techniques as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has experienced a great increase over the last few decades as its use has become more feasible for most experts worldwide.

Generally speaking, the goal of turbulence modeling is to reproduce as accurately as possible these flow physics with a reasonable computational effort. In some cases, turbulence is modeled by the Reynolds Averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) methods, where the ensemble averaging tends to remove the unsteady part. RANS models generally perform satisfactorily in less complex flows, whereas in more complex scenarios may result inappropriate.

A completely different approach is represented by the so-called large eddy simulation (LES) method, where the large-scale energy-containing eddies are solved directly, while the effects of smaller-scale eddies are simply modeled, resulting in models which are more expensive than RANS models in terms of computational cost.

As Guest Editor, I cordially invite you to present works that rigorously show new concepts, developments, and complete and comment on the state-of-the-art developments in the field, referring to the general phenomenon of fluid mechanics, covering aero/hydrodynamics, CFD, heat transfer and other related fields, to be published in this Special Issue, providing originality, usefulness, clarity, and well-founded conclusions.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
