Special Issue "Cardiovascular Flows"
A special issue of Fluids (ISSN 2311-5521).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2019).
The flow of blood in the cardiovascular system is a multi-scale, non-Newtonian, pulsatile flow phenomenon, with complex mechanical and biological interactions in both health and disease. Our understanding of this system has advanced tremendously in the past few decades, and with exciting developments in medical imaging technology, numerical methods, and experimental techniques, we would like to present the very latest progress in cardiovascular flow research.
Though cardiovascular flow covers a broad range of topics, the aim of this Special Issue is to collect together papers that demonstrate and enable fundamental insights into cardiovascular flow. In particular, we are seeking to highlight the state-of-the–art, as well as new theoretical and experimental representations of the cardiovascular system, methods for assimilating and combining experimental and medical imaging data with computational simulations, as well as novel methods for extracting meaningful information from flow data, whether in the form of visualisations, data/model reduction, or biologically meaningful indices.Dr. Andrew Cookson

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.
