Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Wavelets have been gaining more and more popularity in a number of research areas in science and engineering. This Special Issue is aimed at collecting both research and review articles to provide a state-of-the-art overview of the current investigations and topics on wavelet-based methods in fluid dynamics research. The attractive mathematical properties of wavelets (efficient multiscale decomposition, space–wavenumber/time–frequency localization), along with the existence of fast wavelet transforms, result in them being very useful in the modeling and simulation of fluid flows.
Wavelet analysis has been applied to fluid dynamics numerical and experimental data. Wavelet-related functions have been chosen as basis or test functions for the numerical solutions of the fluid dynamics equations, where many successful efforts have been put forth in wavelet-based dynamic adaptation strategies and multiresolution representation approaches. Wavelet-based adaptive methods have been developed for turbulent flow modeling and simulation.
This Special Issue welcomes a whole range of contributions, in which wavelet methods and related techniques are developed and/or applied to different research areas in fluid mechanics.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Wavelet transforms and multiresolution analysis;
- Wavelet multiscale filtering and de-noising;
- Wavelet analysis techniques for numerical data;
- Wavelet analysis techniques for experimental data;
- Wavelet analysis in physics of fluids;
- Wavelet analysis in fluids engineering;
- Wavelet methods in mathematical and computational fluid dynamics;
- Wavelet collocation methods;
- Wavelet methods for the Navier–Stokes equations;
- Wavelet methods for flow and heat transfer problems;
- Wavelet methods for reactive flows;
- Wavelet methods for cavitating flows;
- Wavelets and turbulence modelling;
- Wavelet-based coherent vortex extraction;
- Wavelets and turbulence simulation;
- Coherent vortex simulation;
- Wavelet-based adaptive direct numerical simulation;

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 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 1600 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.
