Special Issue Information
The turn of the century has seen tremendous progress in flow diagnostic tools as a result of the even more staggering improvement in optical illumination, detection devices, as well as data processing techniques. For instance, advances in laser-based optical methods over the last 40 years, including PIV, LDA, PSP/TSP, PLIF, FLEET, Rayleigh Scattering, etc., have made major breakthroughs in the analysis of complex flows containing shock waves, strong expansions, shear layers, vortex organizations, and recirculation regions. There are still many other advanced flow diagnostic technologies that have emerged in aerodynamics and have been widely used in the automobile, aircraft, propulsion, and turbomachinery industry. Although those methods are still under development, they are also opening new possibilities for the measurement and analysis of flow fields that seem too difficult (or even impossible) to achieve using conventional techniques.
This Special Issue will be a collection of contributions that reflect the latest efforts in the development and application of advanced and/or novel flow diagnostic tools with potential applications (or directly linked) to wind tunnel and flight tests, combustion flow, multiphase flow, heat transfer flow, etc. Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
- Laser-based optical measurement techniques;
- Flow visualization techniques;
- Non-intrusive measurement of pressure, skin friction, heat transfer, and deformation at the surface;
- Advanced measurement methods of aerodynamic forces and moments (magnetic suspension balance and cryogenic balance);
- Flow diagnostic tools under extreme conditions (ultra-high-speed, low/high temperature; space condition, etc.);
- Advanced data processing methods for flow diagnostic tools.

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 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.
