High-speed railways have become a common trend in the development of railways in the world, and they are also high-tech-intensive industrial projects that require technical support from various basic disciplines. In the process of the promotion of high-speed trains, variety of aerodynamic phenomena have become very serious, which significantely affect the characteristics of high-speed railways in terms of speed, comfort, reliability, stability, economy, and good compatibility with the environment.
The common issues of these high-speed trains are:
- Effect of crosswinds on train’s stability and their mitigations.
- High aerodynamic resistance and shape optimisation.
- Noise from different parts of train including pantograph and train cavities.
- Pressure variations in tunnels.
- Head pressure pulses.
- Air quality inside trains.
- Vibration of tail cars especially in tunnels.
- Aerodynamic effect of high-speed trains on the infrastructures adjasent to railways.
These are some of the aerodynamic issues that must be investigated in details for the development of high-speed railways. This Special Issue on “Aerodynamics of High-Speed Trains” will collect original research articles and comprehensive reviews, which will be peer-reviewed in the Journal of Applied Sciences. Anyone who might be interested in this topic, you are very welcome to contribute.

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 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.
