Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce the opening of the new Special Issue “Fluvial Hydrodynamics: Hydrodynamic and Sediment Transport” in Applied Science.

The analysis of the movement of grains under different hydrodynamic conditions is extremely important to analyze river and coastal morphodynamics that could occur as a result of natural and/or of human interventions. Understanding fundamental hydrodynamic characteristics related to turbulent diffusion and mixing properties is important for identifying many environmental processes, such as sediment transport and mixing of transported quantities. The present issue wants to contribute to this field by presenting the most relevant advances in fundamental aspects of the erosion, entrainment into suspension, transport, and deposition of sediment in fluvial and coastal systems. Emphasis is given to three main aspects: the fundamentals of hydrodynamics and particle motion, the turbulence flow characteristics and the effects on sediment motion, and the links between sediment transport and morphology.

You are kindly invited to submit a manuscript in any aspect of theoretical analysis and/or experimental results on mechanisms of flow-sediment interaction, two-phase erosion (including the influences of geomorphic processes over a range of spatial and time scales), and on presenting new insights derived from simulating or modeling these interactions in experimental, field, or computational settings.

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.
