Nearly fifty years have passed since two seminal events in the chronology of biofluiddynamics: the publication of Sir James Lighthill’s seminal monograph on mathematical biofluiddynamics and the groundbreaking, immersed boundary method-based simulations of flow in a beating heart by Charles Peskin. Since then, the field of computational biofluidynamics has experienced explosive growth, with applications extending to virtually all areas of physiological fluid dynamics as well as the fluid dynamics of biolocomotion. This expansion has been powered by new physical discoveries and significant improvements in physics-based, as well as data-driven methodologies, including models that couple flow with structural dynamics, aeroacoustics, chemistry, electrodynamics, heat transfer, and other physical domains. This Special Issue of Fluids seeks to highlight recent advances in computation and data-enabled techniques in biofluiddynamics and to showcase the state of the art in the application of these methods to physiological flows, fluid dynamics of biolocomotion, and bioinspired engineering.

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. 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 1600 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.
