Interests: CFD; heat and mass transfer; nanofluid; MHD; ferrofluid; non-Newtonian fluid
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Fluids can be classified into the two main groups of Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids. The main difference between Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids is the relationship between the extra stress tensor and the rate of the strain tensor.
This Special Issue invites you to contribute your original research work and review articles on “Symmetry in Newtonian and Non-Newtonian Fluids” that either advances the state-of-the-art of mathematical methods, theoretical, or experimental studies, or extends the bounds of existing methodologies to new contributions related to the symmetry, asymmetry, and lie symmetries of differential equations proposed as mathematical models in Newtonian and Non-Newtonian fluids to address current challenges. We hope that this Special Issue will provide an overall picture and up-to-date findings to the scientific community that will ultimately benefit the industrial sector regarding its specific market niches and end users. The potential topics include, but are not limited to, the symmetry method, the lie group, homotopy perturbation, homotopy analysis, perturbative series, differential transform, integral transform, numerical simulations and approximate, finite element, volume and difference methods, and other new technologies.

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. Symmetry 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 1800 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.
