The fluid flow dynamics through a pipe is a basic Fluid Mechanics problem, which occurs in many industrial applications. This basic geometry is, not only found in the transportation of goods and/or materials, such as oil, gas and water, but also used as a building block to model more complex flows, such as those in teleheating systems, heat exchangers, mixing chambers, product changeover, as well as in bio-medical applications. Though simple in geometries, they possess very fundamental yet complex fluid flow physics with practical importance.
For instances for internal flow in pipes, a curvature may cause a dean flow and/or with internal perturbation/friction the flow may undergoes laminar to turbulent transition. This significantly alters the pressure head loss, mixing, as well as wall heat transfer. Alternatively, a multiphase or an aggressive fluid flow inside a pipe may cause fluid induced vibration and/or corrosion, pipe failure and as a consequence an environmental hazard. Flow around the pipelines may also cause vortex induced vibrations and affect other nearby pipes and infrastructure.
This Special Issue is dedicated to different fundamental aspects of “Pipeline Fluid Mechanics” along with their applications to engineering problems. The current Special Issue invites all original experimental, statistical, analytical and computational fluid dynamic research works in the field. This research topic also welcomes related novel inter-/multi-disciplinary works in the emerging areas of mechanical, chemical, process and energy engineering.

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 1600 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.
