Fluid Dynamics Research 

fdr 2009

Fluid Dynamics Research publishes theoretical, numerical and experimental studies that contribute to the fundamental understanding and application of fluid phenomena. It is an invaluable resource for physicists and researchers in engineering interested in problems relevant to the motion of fluids. Featuring invited reviews and original papers on topical subjects by leading researchers in the field, the journal's coverage is broad and will appeal to researchers working in the interdisciplinary field of fluid dynamics.

Fluid Dynamics Research has a new Editor-in-Chief, Professor Yasuhide Fukumoto, who is supported by an international Editorial Board. The journal is published six times per year and has adopted article numbering, enabling papers to be published online immediately, ahead of print publication.

Fluid Dynamics Research publishes original and creative works in all fields of fluid dynamics. The scope includes theoretical, numerical and experimental studies that contribute to the fundamental understanding and/or application of fluid phenomena.

In addition to regular papers, the journal also publishes review articles commissioned by members of the Editorial board.
