Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Computational methods are at the heart of investigations in modern fluid dynamics, complementing theory and experimentation. They have become indispensable for simulations of complex fluids and flows, where features such as nonlinearity and/or nonlocality due to inertial effects or rheological constitutive equations, multiple scale effects, jumps in fluid properties across multi-fluid interfaces or non-continuum behavior pose significant challenges. In this Special Issue, we welcome papers that address the development and application of a variety of computational schemes for such problems, including the classical numerical techniques (finite difference, finite volume, finite element and spectral methods), mesoscopic methods including lattice Boltzmann methods, dissipative particle dynamics and other particle methods, as well as molecular dynamics. Our focus is on novel algorithms that simulate complex fluid motions efficiently and in a robust manner while delivering the required accuracy. Application areas include, but are not limited to, turbulence, non-Newtonian fluid flows, thermal convective flows, multiphase fluids, particulate systems, magnetohydrodynamic flows and microflows.

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.
