Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a fluid mechanics that uses numerical analysis and data structures to analyze and solve problems that involve fluid flows. Due to the availability of ever-increasing computational power, CFD is gaining popularity in ocean engineering. This Special Issue covers the entire range of issues and technologies related to floating offshore structures (floating and fixed offshore platforms, offshore infrastructures, etc.), with a strong emphasis on CFD simulation technology of floating offshore structures.
We seek contributions spanning a broad range of topics related (but not limited) to the following:
- Computational fluid dynamics;
- Vortex-induced vibrations;
- Fluid–structure interaction;
- Linear and nonlinear wave mechanics;
- Buoyancy and stability;
- Ship resistance and propulsion;
- Ship maneuvering, radiated noise.

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. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering 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 2600 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.
