Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The computational prediction of internal flows and advanced aero-thermal instrumentation are two of the most significant areas that have helped cause recent improvements in turbomachinery systems. The high efficiency and reliable operation of aerospace propulsion systems and ground-based power generation systems directly benefits turbomachinery R&D, relying heavily on modern instrumentation and computational prediction of aero-thermo-mechanical systems.

This Special Issue on "Advanced Aero-Thermal Instrumentation and Computational Prediction of Turbomachinery Flows" contains recent work in the areas of steady/unsteady aero-thermal flow systems, aero-thermal optimizations, and fluid–solid interactions. Submissions from all areas of aero-propulsion systems, ground-based power generation systems, and general turbomachinery fields are expected.

Papers dealing with recently developed novel measurement systems are highly encouraged. Advanced aero-thermal instrumentation-related papers, including particle image velocimetry PIV, laser doppler anemometry LDA, pressure/temperature sensitive coatings, fast response pressure and heat flux sensors, thermographic liquid crystals, and novel film cooling effectiveness measurement methods are included in the broad scope of the Special Issue.

Multi-dimensional turbomachinery aerothermal computations using the finite volume method, finite element method, complex grid generation approaches applied to the main gas path, cooling systems, and secondary flow systems will be considered. Time-accurate rotor simulations and LES- and DNS-based studies are also suitable topics for this edition.
