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 Genta Kawahara, 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 as well as data-driven approaches that contribute to the fundamental understanding and/or application of fluid flow phenomena, including turbulence, instability, nonlinear waves, vortex dynamics, rotating flows, multiphase and stratified flows, and micro-scale flows.

Fluid Dynamics Research covers a broad range of fundamental topics in science and engineering in fields including, but not limited to, aeronautics, astrophysics, acoustics, atmospheric and environmental science, biological fluid dynamics, chemically reacting flows, combustion, gasdynamics, geophysics, meteorology, oceanography, and plasma physics. FDR welcomes contributions that pioneer novel ideas and approaches to advance the understanding of fluid flow phenomena and/or develop new applications of fluid mechanics.
