Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has emerged as a powerful tool for simulating and analysing fluid flows in environmental engineering applications. CFD has the potential to provide accurate and reliable predictions of complex fluid flow patterns, including those occurring in environmental systems. The present Special Issue aims to showcase the latest research and developments in CFD methods and their problem-solving applications in Environmental Engineering.

The scope of the Special Issue will include, but will not be limited to, the following topics:

  • Modeling of environmental fluid flows, including air, water, and soil.
  • Simulation of turbulent flows in environmental systems.
  • CFD applications in wastewater treatment and management.
  • CFD analysis of air pollution dispersion in urban environments.
  • Simulation of sediment transport and erosion in rivers and coastal areas.
  • CFD-based design of hydraulic structures, such as dams and reservoirs.
  • Optimization of environmental engineering systems using CFD.
  • Development of new CFD methods and algorithms for environmental applications.
  • Validation and verification of CFD simulations in Environmental and Water Engineering.
  • Uncertainty quantification of stochastic modelling parameters in CFD.

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. Applied Sciences 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 2300 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.
