Experimental and computational ship hydrodynamics have developed rapidly over the last ten years. Experimental studies extended their measurements from integral to local flow variables and from captive/semi-captive to free-running self-propelled ships, providing data at different levels for the validation of computational solvers. Additionally, computational tools moved from inviscid flow and system-based solvers to complete physics-based methods, based on the Navier–Stokes equations. Investigations on nontraditional computational techniques, such as the LBM (Lattice Boltzmann Method), have also recently been initiated. Open source codes have accelerated these developments, and a fully simulation-based design seems more feasible than ever. The advancements of HPC (High-Performance Computing) have enabled computational tools to investigate hydrophysics at multiscales by utilizing thousands of cores. Studies have been conducted on a wide range of topics, including bubbly wake flow, propulsion and cavitation, fluid–body dynamic interaction, hydroelasticity, intact and damaged stability, deterministic and scholastic optimization, extreme events, uncertainty quantification, and verification and validation. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect some of the state-of-the-art contributions to experimental and computational ship hydrodynamics.

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. 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 550 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.
