Special Issue Information
Turbomachines are perhaps one the most important machines ever designed through the manipulation of the science of aerodynamics, and their applications are vast; they are used as the prime movers for power production and in the propulsion systems of aircrafts. The basic principle of operation for all types of turbomachinery is the same, but the aerodynamics of such machines can be particularly challenging due to the complex geometry, Reynolds number and Mach number of the flow. In terms of aerodynamics, there are several branches; in the larger context, the aerodynamics of turbomachinery can be divided into two sub-categories (i.e., external and internal aerodynamics). However, for turbomachines the internal aerodynamics are even more complex, with flow through compressors, fans, blowers, combustion chambers and turbines, such that in the compressors the flow is compressed while in the turbines the pressure is decreased. This presents hugely complex flow phenomena and truly makes turbomachinery a miracle of the science of aerodynamics.
This Special Issue will be devoted to the state-of-the-art research on the aerodynamics of turbomachines, as well as their components and sub-systems. We seek submissions with a broader perspective of external or internal flows that can include theoretical, experimental or computational investigations, as well as advanced thinking on the theme.

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. Machines 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 2000 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.
