Turbulence is one of the difficult and interesting problems in fluid physics, with ubiquitous applications in engineering and science. Numerics are predominantly used in modern solutions and analysis of turbulent flows. Even in this regard, additional measures such as entropy and related principles can lead to advances or even breakthroughs. An example is the use of the maximum entropy principle in determining the turbulence kinetic energy spectra or the spatial distribution in wall-bounded flows. It can even be said that existing methods have reached an asymptote where colorful results may be obtained from super-simulations, and yet the rate of approach to new insights or solutions has decelerated. Therefore, it is a timely endeavor to seek new insights toward turbulent flows, and one interesting and useful measure is the entropy and related principles.
We open this forum and invite articles on this topic, where ideas and approaches based on sound physics of entropy and turbulent flows will receive careful considerations regardless of their novelty. The topics are broadly on entropy and related principles applied toward turbulent flows and are inclusive of single- and multiphase flows (e.g., spray atomization), reacting flows, and large-scale flows (atmospheric turbulence or industrial processes). System-level entropy analyses of processes involving turbulent flows are also of interest.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Entropy 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 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.
