Aims and Scope (revised version)

The Journal is intended to cover typical topics of fluid dynamics and materials science in their various realizations and manifestations at various (from the nano to the lab or industrial) scales in many sub- fields of engineering (mechanical, thermal, chemical, biomedical, nuclear, civil, naval, aeronautical and aerospace engineering).

Relevant subjects include the treatment, processing and manufacturing of metals and related alloys, salts, semiconductors, nanofibers, nanofluids (and related problems of nano-enhanced heat transfer), crystals amd nanoparticles of various kinds, foams, plastics, polymers and other macromolecular substances (such as, e.g., proteins) in their solid or “fluid” (or “fluidized”) state. Both inorganic or organic fluids or substances are covered, including special cases such as cement, ceramic materials, resins, soil, food and biological samples of various kinds.

Studies on fluid/structure or fluid/material interaction mechanisms, porous substances, processes with phase change and the dynamics of various multi-phase and multi-component systems are welcome.

Submissions related to the application of typical concepts, methods and tools of fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, porous media mechanics and nano-mechanics to problems in the main area of materials science are particularly welcome. In practice, the Journal is conceived to demonstrate the relevance of computational and/or experimental studies to fluid-dynamic analysis and materials science for a broad variety of situations and fields.
