    Special Issue on Experimental Fluid Mechanics


    There are still characteristics of fluid dynamics that are difficult to simulate or understand, due to their complex geometry, flow regime (high Reynolds number, hypersonic Mach number, etc.), unsteady turbulence, separation, complex reactions, and transition which only experiments can provide the sufficient fidelity to study and predict.  Additionally with the advent of state-of-the-art diagnostics a higher fidelity of detailed investigations can be performed giving us a more complete picture of the fluid dynamics phenomena.  The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of experimental fluid mechanics.


    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore experimental fluid mechanics. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Theory and experiment in fluid mechanics
    • Dimensional analysis
    • Flow similarity and model studies
    • Design and analyses of experiments
    • Measurement technologies for experiments in basic properties: pressure, velocity, flowrate, visualization, particle image velocity
    • The boundary-value problem


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Experimental Fluid Mechanics” should be selected during your submission.
