Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue is inspired by the broad interests in hypersonics/aerothermodynamics among the aerospace community. Despite a long history of research and development identified in numerous publications, multiple fundamental and engineering aspects are still underexplored and related knowledge not transferred to the technical implementation yet. Hypersonic research is challenging due to an extremely harsh environment associated with atmospheric flight at high speed. This Special Issue is targeting current fundamental research efforts related to hypersonics in a broad range of topics of emerging aerospace applications.
Manuscripts are solicited describing experimental, computational, and/or theoretical research related to hypersonics/aerothermadynamics with a focus on fundamental studies. Publications related to a specific application are relevant to this Special Issue’s scope as well. Submissions may also include ongoing project reports and studies addressing problems in other fields, such as propulsion, energy, or the environment. Topics include but are not limited to:
- Mach 5 and higher aerodynamics, aerodynamic design, waveriders;
- Shock waves and shock wave–boundary layer interaction;
- Hypersonic BL instabilities, laminar-to-turbulent transition;
- Space transportation system, re-entry, entry to planetary atmosphere;
- Heat flux control, thermal protection system;
- Duct-driven high-speed flow control;
- Ramjet/scramjet flowpath, flameholding, and stability;
- Thermochemical nonequilibrium flow, rarefied gas dynamics;
- Ground test facilities, flight experiments;

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Aerospace 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 2400 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.
