Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

There are numerous fluid mechanics physical problems related to interesting applications, including biological, (bio)magnetic, fluid–structure interaction, and generally hydrodynamic fluid flow problems. The study of these problems is often carried out utilizing either experimental or numerical methods. Another interesting feature is represented by the theoretical aspects, such as the derivation of analytical solutions or the study of the existence of solutions. Such kind of studies are always valuable and highly desirable, even for special or simplified cases of the corresponding physical problems. This Special Issue focuses on the numerical, experimental, or analytical study of mainly incompressible flows in various geometries, such as internal or boundary layer flows. The physical problems of concern are those related to, but not exclusively, classical hydrodynamics, biological flows, ferrohydrodynamics (FHD), magnetohydrodynamics (MHD,) and biomagnetic fluid dynamics.

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.

Abstract
The prime aim of this paper is to probe the flow of micropolar nanofluid towards an inclined stretching surface adjacent to the stagnation region with Brownian motion and thermophoretic impacts. The chemical reaction and heat generation or absorption are also taken into account. [...] Read more.
The prime aim of this paper is to probe the flow of micropolar nanofluid towards an inclined stretching surface adjacent to the stagnation region with Brownian motion and thermophoretic impacts. The chemical reaction and heat generation or absorption are also taken into account. The energy and mass transport of the micropolar nanofluid flow towards an inclined surface are discussed. The numerical solution is elucidated for the converted non-linear ordinary differential equation from the set of partial nonlinear differential equations via compatible similarity transformations. A converted system of ordinary differential equations is solved via the Keller-box scheme. The stretching velocity and external velocity are supposed to change linearly by the distance from the stagnation point. The impacts of involved parameters on the concerned physical quantities such as skin friction, Sherwood number, and energy exchange are discussed. These results are drawn through the graphs and presented in the tables. The energy and mass exchange rates show a direct relation with the stagnation point. In the same vein, skin friction diminishes with the growth of the stagnation factor. Heat and mass fluxes show an inverse correspondence with the inclination factor. Full article
