Special Issue "Tomographic and Volumetric Diagnostics in Flames"
A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2021).
Interests: tomographic techniques in energy- and process-technology; flame tomography; evolutionary reconstruction techniques (ERT); background-oriented schlieren tomography; multi-simultaneous measurements
Interests: flame tomography; large-eddy simulation of combustion; direct numerical simulation of flames; nano-particle synthesis; modelling
Stringent regulations concerning pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions, safety and cost concerns, and fuel load and stability issues all call for the need to improve combustion devices. This can only be achieved with an in-depth understanding of realistic flames, which, in most cases, are turbulent. A fundamental understanding of such flames, as well as advanced numerical simulations, require experimental data that should ideally be time-resolved and volumetric, due to the inherent unsteadiness and three-dimensionality of the flames.
With this Special Issue, we aim to present recent work on tomographic and volumetric imaging in flames. We advise that papers should not exceed 12 pages in length. Review papers are also welcome, but please contact us if you plan to prepare one.

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. Energies 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 2200 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.
