Special Issue "Turbulence and Multiphase Flows and Symmetry"
A special issue of Symmetry (ISSN 2073-8994). This special issue belongs to the section "Computer and Engineering Science and Symmetry/Asymmetry".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 November 2021.
Interests: computational fluid dynamics (CFD); multiphase flows; fluid-solid interactions (FSI); particle-based methods
Interests: multiphase flows; Meshless computational fluid mechanics (smoothed particle hydrodynamics); polymer based composite materials; nano composites; transport phenomena in materials processing
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:
- Bubble and droplet symmetry breaking in break-up, separation, and coalescence phenomena;
- Droplets’ wake interactions in symmetry and asymmetry flows;
- Atomization and spray;
- Multiphase treatment of nanofluidic applications;
- Boiling and condensation
- Phase-change and crystallization;
- Aerodynamics and hydrodynamics of symmetric flows;
- 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 for the asymmetry and chaotic fluid flow simulations;
- 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 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.
