Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Marine computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a pivotal tool in the design and analysis of ships, underwater vehicles, offshore structures, and marine energy devices. It enables the prediction of hydrodynamic performance, the assessment of energy efficiency, and the mitigation of environmental impacts. With the marine industry striving for sustainability and innovation, the role of CFD in understanding and harnessing the power of the oceans has never been more critical. This Special Issue invites researchers, engineers, and scholars to contribute original research articles, review papers, and case studies that push the boundaries of marine CFD. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Advanced simulation techniques for turbulent flows, wave dynamics, fluid–structure interactions, and ship hydrodynamics;
  • CFD applications in the conceptualization, design, and optimization of hull shapes, propellers, marine renewable energy devices, and other marine structures;
  • Environmental impact assessments using CFD include wave and wind impacts on marine infrastructure, oil spill modeling, marine ecosystem protection, and underwater noise pollution;
  • Integration of CFD with other emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, data assimilation, machine learning, and digital twins, will revolutionize marine engineering solutions;
  • Case studies on the successful applications of CFD in maritime industry projects.

Through this Special Issue, we aim to foster collaboration, inspire innovation, and contribute to the sustainable development of the marine industry.

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. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering 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 2600 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.
