    Aims and Scope


    Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics provides a forum for the cross fertilization of ideas, tools and techniques across all disciplines in which fluid flow plays a role. The focus is on aspects of fluid dynamics where theory and computation are used to provide insights and data upon which solid physical understanding is revealed.  We seek research papers, invited review articles, brief communications, letters and comments addressing flow phenomena of relevance to aeronautical, geophysical, environmental, material, mechanical and life sciences.  Papers of a purely algorithmic, experimental or engineering application nature, and papers without significant new physical insights, are outside the scope of this journal.  For computational work, authors are responsible for ensuring that any artifacts of discretization and/or implementation are sufficiently controlled such that the numerical results unambiguously support the conclusions drawn.   Where appropriate, and to the extent possible, such papers should either include or reference supporting documentation in the form of verification and validation studies.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
