Special Issue "Smart Hydraulics in Wastewater Transport"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018).
In the engineering and operation of systems for wastewater collection, transportation and treatment, applied hydraulics is of undisputed importance. As most existing infrastructure is designed based on relatively simple design rules aiming at robustness, it is no surprise that applying more advanced means (e.g., 3D CFD simulations, advanced measuring techniques and modern process control) can help to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of wastewater systems on one hand, while at the other hand these advanced means can provide valuable insight for new designs.
When talking about “smart” hydraulics in wastewater, one can think of several interpretations:
- Using advanced hydraulic calculations in designing and operating wastewater systems (e.g., flow patterns in reactors).
- Using advanced measuring techniques (e.g., PIV, PTV) for design purposes.
- Applying knowledge on hydraulic phenomena hitherto ignored or avoided (e.g., vortices or pre-rotation pump sumps) because of a limited understanding of their benefits or the risk they represent to damaging equipment or endanger system performance.
The proposed Special Issue on “Smart Hydraulics in Wastewater” aims at (but is not limited to) addressing the afore mentioned fields of interest. Manuscripts may address fundamental and applied research, while well documented case studies are welcomed as well. As a lot of challenges with respect to wastewater hydraulics are related to multiphase flows, contributions in this field of interest are encouraged.

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. Water 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.
