Special Issue "Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer in Biological Systems and Clinical/Medical Applications"
A special issue of Fluids (ISSN 2311-5521).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 February 2017).

Bio-fluid mechanics and bio-heat transfer represent the intersection of fluid mechanics, heat transfer, biological systems and clinical/medical applications. A few examples of bio-fluid mechanics and bio-heat transfer research are: Investigation of blood flow, human cardiovascular and respiratory systems, cryosurgery, laser surgery, bio-tribology, cell transport, drug delivery, aerodynamics of birds and insects, etc. A greater understanding of the behavior of biological systems is needed in order to be able to design better medical devices, to better predict the development of diseases and to improve the treatments of a wide range of pathologies. This Special Issue of Fluids seeks original contributions or reviews in all aspects of bio-fluid mechanics and bio-heat transfer including analytical, computational and experimental studies in biological systems.

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. Fluids is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
