Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The current Special Issue aims to attract original high-quality papers of recent developments in the field of turbulence, multiphase flows, and fluid–solid interactions (FSI). Research papers may incorporate one or a combination of computational, experimental, and analytical approaches and include at least one of the following research themes: (i) a cutting-edge physical investigation in the field of turbulence, multiphase flows or FSI, (ii) extending current numerical models and algorithm development and/or development of novel experimental techniques, (iii) addressing solutions for complex challenges in relevant applications, and (iv) illustration of research impacts on industrial and/or environmental issues.

The present Special Issue covers a wide range of research topics to align with at least one of the above general themes. The topic of research papers may include but are not limited to one of the following topics (Please note that all submitted papers must be within the general scope of the Symmetry journal):

  • Bubble and droplet break-up, separation, and coalescence;
  • Droplets’ wake interactions;
  • Atomization and spray;
  • Multiphase treatment of nanofluidic applications;
  • Boiling and cond
  • Phase-change and crystallization;
  • ensation;
  • Aerodynamics and hydrodynamics;
  • Implementation, application, and influence of electro-hydrodynamics and magneto-hydrodynamics;
  • Sedimentation, aggregation, flocculation, and agglomeration of solid particles;
  • Numerical development of RANS, URANS, LES, and DNS;
  • Immersed boundary method;
  • Lattice–Boltzmann method and particle-based methods, such as SPH, MPS, DEM, CGMD, etc.

This Special Issue will emphasize the industrial and environmental impact of research. Thus, Research papers with special industrial (i.e., pharmaceutical, biomedical, petroleum, automotive, fuel cells, etc.) and environmental (i.e., global warming, water and wastewater, desalination, etc.) impacts are particularly invited for submission.

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 1400 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.

In this paper, the unsteady magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of hybrid nanofluid (HNF) composed of C u A l 2 O 3 /water in the presence of a thermal radiation effect over the stretching/shrinking sheet is investigated. Using similarity transformation, the governing partial differential equations (PDEs) are transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs), which are then solved by using a shooting method. In order to validate the obtained numerical results, the comparison of the results with the published literature is made numerically as well as graphically and is found in good agreements. In addition, the effects of many emerging physical governing parameters on the profiles of velocity, temperature, skin friction coefficient, and heat transfer rate are demonstrated graphically and are elucidated theoretically. Based on the numerical results, dual solutions exist in a specific range of magnetic, suction, and unsteadiness parameters. It was also found that the values of f ( 0 ) rise in the first solution and reduce in the second solution when the solid volume fraction ϕ C u is increased. Finally, the temporal stability analysis of the solutions is conducted, and it is concluded that only the first solution is stable. Full article
