Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Often a useful tool, but occasionally a disaster, fire has accompanied humankind for millennia. Protecting from coldness, darkness, predators, and stomach bacteria, combustion brought primitive, tribal humans into modern industrial civilization, and it will likely remain the major provider of energy for industry, heating, and transportation in the foreseeable decades. Next-generation combustion technologies are expected to be environmentally friendly, safe, and energy-efficient, and the role of numerical methods is emerging in the design and development of such advances today.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect recent analytical and computational advances in the fields of reacting fluids, including, but not limited to, premixed flame dynamics and morphology, turbulent burning, flame acceleration, and combustion instabilities.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Fluids 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.
