Special Issue "Fluvial Hydraulics and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (14 May 2021).
Interests: two-phase models for fast geomorphic flows; non-Newtonian fluids over impermeable and permeable bottom; surface instability of open-channel flows; flood prediction for clear-water and debris flows
Fluvial hydraulics concerns the flow of water in rivers and channels, along with the active interaction with erodible beds, the sediment transport, and the consequent morphodynamical changes. These problems are studied at different scales, through theoretical, numerical, and experimental modeling. Research advances are taking place in all the fluvial hydraulics aspects, and technical applications are gaining a novel vision, being more and more oriented towards ecological-friendly river management and sustainable engineering design.
For this Special Issue, original contributions dealing with problems of fluvial hydraulics and relative applications are invited. Papers based on field studies, numerical simulations, and laboratory experiments are suitable. The objective is to showcase and share the state-of-the-art scientific knowledge in research and applications in the field of fluvial hydraulics. The issue will also publish a selection of papers from the Special Session “River Hydraulics and Applications” of the IAHR Congress Europe 2020 in Warsaw.
All the papers considered for publication in the Special Issue will be subject to the review process according to the journal requirements.
A non-exhasustive list of pertaining topics comprises: hydrodynamics of river flow in unsteady condition and/or in channel with complex geometries; relationship between flow and turbulence structures and sediment transport; flow interaction with structures also in the presence of erodible bed; river morphodynamic evolution; and the impact of floods and effects of failure of hydraulic structure, such as levees or dams.

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 semimonthly 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 2000 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.
