In order to reach the goal of 100% renewable energy consumption, wind energy, as a pioneer of renewable energy, is developing very quickly all over the world. To reduce the levelized cost of energy (LCOE), the size of a single wind turbine has been increased to 10 MW nowadays and it will increase further in the near future. Big wind turbines and their associated wind farms have many challenges in aerodynamics, aero-elasticity and aeroacoustics. The typical effects are mainly related to the increase in Reynolds number and blade flexibility. This Special Issue collects some important works addressing the aerodynamic challenges to help scientifically the realization of such development.

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 1500 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.
