Aims and Scope: Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics

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.
