The existance of symmetry and its breacking in aero-/hydro-dynamics applications are some of the most important aspects of many engineering fields, such as mechanical, aurospace, chemical, and process engineering. For intance, the existence of breaking of symmetry at a critical Renolds number confirmed the existence of a bifurcation in expansion pipe flows. Such a symmetry breacking mechanism may cause the appearance of turbulence, which in retun increases the mixing and required pomping power for several process engineering design applications. In aerospace aplications, the receptivity of a symetric laminar flow to internal/external perturbations may cause the flow to transition, a dramatic change in the local drag coeeficient, and heat removal from the surface. The latter needs to be considered in the design step for choosing the proper materals that can also bear the unbalanced thermodynamic loads.
The applications of symmetry and its breacking are usually inter-disicplinary, and prior knowledge of them is crusial for many real-life applications. Therfore, the current Special Issue, Aero-/Hydro-dynamics and Symmetry, invites original and review works in the field for participation. The scope of this Special Issue contains, but is not limmited to, the state-of-the-art computational, theoritical, and experimental works dealing with symmetry and its breacking, which are in line with the aero-/hydro-dynamics applications. Recent advances in numerical, theoritical, and experimental methodologies, as well as finding new physics, new methodological developments, and their limmitations, lies within the scope of the current Special Issue. Potential topics dealing with the following subheadings are deemed suitable for publication, but are not limited to:
- Mathematical models such as the symmetry method, homotopy perturbation method (HPM), homotopy analysis method (HAM), lie group, integral transform, and so on;
- Equilibirium and out of equilibirium thermodynamics and fluid mechanics
- Hydrodynamics for symmetric exclusion;
- Hydrodynamics with multiple higher-form symmetries;
- Ideal order and dissipative fluids with q-form symmetry;
- Partial and fractional order differential equations;
- Finite difference (FDM), finite volume (FVM), finite element (FEM), smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH), moving particle semi-implicit (MPS), lattice Boltzmann (LBM) methods, and so on;
- multiphysics phenomena, such as non-Newtonian flows, multiphase flows, phase change, nanofluidic, magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), electrohydrodynamics (EHD), and so on;
- Symmetry and its breackdown in transitional and turbulent flows.
