Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The droplets and bubbles are ubiquitously present in natural and engineering processes including raindrops on soil, jet droplets from breaking waves, transmission of respiratory diseases, inkjet printing, combustion, spray cooling, anti-icing, additive manufacturing, and surface coating. The dynamics of droplets and bubbles play critical roles in these processes, therefore understanding of droplet and bubble dynamics in various types of fluids is of great significance.  This Special Issue aims to gather a wide variety of papers that focus on the dynamics of droplets and bubbles. Potential topics include but are not limited to droplet deformation, rising droplets, droplet coalescences, droplet breakup, bubble collapse, droplet media interaction, droplet/bubble produced from capillary focusing phenomena, and droplet/bubble transport in microsystem.

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.
