Special Issue Information

Dear  Colleagues,

Modeling and simulation of the coupled multiphase motion of immiscible fluids and the associated thermal transport is of fundamental importance in the study of a wide range of physical processes occurring in nature and engineered processes. Multiphase flow is important for the mixing of reactants in combustion and for the dispersion of pollutants in the atmosphere and the oceans. It plays an important role in the thermal packaging of electronics, in the thermal management of nuclear reactors, as well as the diagnosis and prevention of disease in biological systems.

Despite enjoying a long history of activity due to its central importance in nature and engineering applications, modeling and simulation of multiphase flow continues to receive wide attention due to the substantial challenges associated with the accuracy, efficiency, and robustness of simulation techniques as well as the modeling of physics related to the interfacial transport of mass, momentum, and energy. Over the years, numerous methods and approaches have evolved to address myriad aspects of these challenges.

This Special Issue aims to report novel numerical methods and new physical phenomena related to multiphase flow as well as provide an overview of recent developments, progress, and implementation of these methods in diverse applications, including bubbly flow, spray atomization, drop formation, viscoelastic solids, and thermal transport processes involving nucleate, film, and flow boiling processes.

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.
