Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The design of industrial fans has evolved to meet the ever-increasing demands for higher-efficiency machines, combined with the requirements for lower noise and high availability. Numerical simulation techniques are important parts of the aerodynamic and acoustic design process and are increasingly coupled to optimization methods. In addition, connectivity, the Internet of Things and digitalization in general open up new opportunities for the highly efficient, low-noise and safe operation of fans in complex systems.

The aim of this Special Issue is to promote the recent advances in fan technology and provide insights into the development and operation of industrial fans for a wide range of applications.

The paper submissions for this Special Issue are welcome to cover some of the following aspects, as well as other related topics:

  • The development of analytical and computational aerodynamic methods;
  • Emerging advanced fan design methodologies;
  • The application of analytical and computational methods for fan analysis, design and optimization;
  • Structural mechanical aspects (vibration, fatigue and flutter, preventive maintenance, condition monitoring, predictive maintenance);
  • Experimental methods in fan analysis;
  • Flow-induced and structure-borne fan noise;
  • Methods of sound source localization in fans;
  • Aeroacoustic models and computational (aero)acoustic methods;
  • Psychoacoustics: product sound quality, perception of annoyance;
  • Compliance with legislation and regulations;
  • Connectivity technologies and digital services;
  • Fan system effect.

Papers submitted for this Special Issue are also expected to come from the 4th International Conference FAN2022, scheduled to take place in June 2022 in Senlis, France.

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. International Journal of Turbomachinery, Propulsion and Power 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 850 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.
