Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Symmetry is a fundamental notion in thermal fluid sciences and energy applications. It is an important tool for elucidating the properties of complex systems. Thermal and fluid processes are applied in several modern energy-use technologies, basically consisting of the complex multidimensional interactions of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. A comprehensive analysis of this topic involves vector and scalar quantities in the flow field, where symmetry is strongly considered in order to simplify geometric parameters. These requirements are therefore also applied to experimental techniques. The interconnection between experimental analysis and the numerical simulation of processes is also an important field. Thus, there are a wide range of symmetry solutions for this area of ​​research, the results of which contribute to the development of science and information for decision-making in industry.

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. Symmetry 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 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.
