    Aims and Scope


    Flow, Turbulence and Combustion  provides a forum for the publication of  research results that contribute to the solution of problems in flow, turbulence and combustion and related fields. The journal aims for readers and contributors coming from the international fluid mechanics community, both inside and outside academia, and underwriting the aims mentioned above. It covers the entire domain of flow, turbulence and combustion, including all flow problems relevant in industrial, geophysical and environmental applications. The emphasis is on solid and original, numerical,experimental and theoretical research results and their relevance to applied fluid mechanics and combustion.

    The journal is published in association with the European Research Community on Flow, Turbulence and Combustion (ERCOFTAC). ERCOFTAC is a collaboration between European universities, research institutes and industry active in the area of applied fluid mechanics and combustion, and promotes scientific research on current issues in this area.   

    The journal has evolved from Applied Scientific Research which, established in 1948, has changed over the years from a general scientific journal into a journal focusing on the applications of fluid dynamics. The title Flow, Turbulence and Combustion  adopted in 1998 reflects this change of focus.

    Main features of accepted papers will be originality, novelty, timeliness, and clarity of presentation.Full-length research papers and review of survey articles are equally welcome. All such contributions are subject to critical peer review prior to acceptance and publication. We also invite submission of short contributions or correspondence on new and/or controversial matters for which quick publication will be ensured. The journal puts great emphasis on applied fluid dynamics and therefore requires that authors discuss the applications aspects of their work in at least one paragraph.
