Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of this Topic Collection is to invite research and review papers from the scientific community engaged in foundational, modeling, computational, and experimental research in turbulence. Turbulent flow investigations in all physical, biological, and engineering sciences are welcome. Foundational papers in turbulence may include statistical methods and theories, chaos theory and reduced order models, and other novel formulations and approaches. Modeling and computational methods may include Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) models, large eddy simulation (LES), wall-modeled (WM)-LES, wall-resolved (WR)-LES, DES/DDES/IDDES, machine learning and data-driven modeling, transition modeling, intermittancy, uncertainty quantification of turbulence models, and direct numerical simulation DNS. Experimental methods may include hot-wire-anemometry (HWA), laser-Doppler-velocimetry (LDV), particle-image-velocimetry (PIV), and flow visualization techniques. Applications may include atmospheric, oceanic, and other nature-occuring flows, bioological/biomimitic flows, and flows related to industries such as aircraft, turbomachinery, automotive, agriculture, energy, and the environment, etc.

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 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 collection 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 1400 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.
