Special Issue on Fluid Flow and Thermo-Mechanics Engineering

The Special Issue in Fluid Flow and Thermo-Mechanics Engineering will be a forum for the publication of high-quality peer-reviewed papers on integral-differential equations, finite elements, finite differences, finite volumes, and boundary elements. This issue also publishes contributions that employ existing experimental techniques to gain an understanding of the underlying flow physics in the areas of turbulence, aerodynamics, hydrodynamics, convective heat transfer, combustion, turbomachinery, and multi-phase flows. In fact, Fluid flow and Thermo-Mechanics applications are ubiquitous in nature. Many aspects in industrial operations and daily life are closely related to fluid flow and heat transfer processes. Along with the development of computer industry and the advancement of numerical methods, solid foundation in both hardware and software has been established to study the processes by using numerical simulation methods, which play important roles in the ways of extending research topics, reducing research costs, discovering new phenomena, and developing new technologies. Methods for solving ancillary equations such as transport and diffusion are also quite relevant. The expressed intention of this issue is the dissemination of information relating to the development refinement and application of numerical and experimental techniques for solving problems in fluids.

Special Issue on Biologically Inspired Mechanisms

Over last few decades much researchers and designers have started to design mechanisms, which by biology are inspired. This research set foundation for modern robotic systems applied in industry area as well as for service and domestic needs.
The aims and scope of the special issue “Biologically Inspired Mechanisms” is focused on designing, modeling and control of mechanisms those mechanical structure is inspired by biology. This special issue is of interest in original high quality theoretical and empirical studies that give a relevant contribution to mechanical design, motion modeling, and control systems design of biologically inspired mechanisms.
