Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As the aerospace industry continuously strives for improved designs and pushes the boundaries of innovation, it encounters various obstacles that call for innovative solutions. This Special Issue aims to tackle these challenges head-on and provide a collaborative platform for researchers to share their expertise and insights.

The design of aerostructures, particularly those involving composite materials, presents intricate and multifaceted challenges that necessitate a multidisciplinary approach. Techniques such as finite element analysis (FEA), multiscale modeling, and damage/failure analysis play pivotal roles in addressing these complexities. Optimization methods, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and structural dynamics further contribute to optimizing the performance and efficiency of aerostructures.

Researchers are encouraged to submit their work that encompasses the latest advancements in computational modeling for aerostructures. Contributions can cover theoretical developments, practical applications, methodological discussions, state-of-the-art reviews, and forward-looking perspectives.

Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Computational modeling techniques for aerostructures;
  • Multiscale modeling approaches in aerospace engineering;
  • Damage and failure analysis of composite materials;
  • Optimization methods for aerostructure design;
  • CFD in aerospace applications;
  • Structural dynamics and analysis in aerostructures;
  • Material characterization and testing in aerospace materials;
  • Integration of problem-based learning and serious games in aerostructure education;
  • Harnessing the potential of digital twin technology in aerostructure design and simulation.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Computation 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.
