For the past 20 years, Fluid Mechanics Research (prior to 1992 Fluid Mechanics-Soviet Research) has offered broad coverage of the entire field of fluid mechanics including flow of compressible and incompressible fluids, vapor-liquid and slurry flows, turbulence, waves, boundary layers, wakes, channel and nozzle flow, fluid-structure interaction, lubrication, flow in porous media, flow through turbo-machinery, aerodynamics and rheology as well as new and innovative measurement techniques. The journal's coverage is now being broadened to encompass research in the general area of transport phenomena where convective, diffusional and chemical reaction processes are important and to include biological systems as well as technological and geophysical systems.
Fluid Mechanics Research has now merged with the TsAGI Journal, a publication of the world-famous Central Aero-Hydrodynamics Institute in Russia. This will position the new International Journal of Fluid Mechanics Research (IJFMR) as a leading journal on the art and science of transport phenomena and its application to the understanding of complex technological systems while maintaining a balance between academic materials and practical applications.
Heretofore, Fluid Mechanics Research concentrated on publishing translations of important theoretical and experimental papers from the former Soviet Union. Now, the broader Journal invites contributions in English from the entire international research community, but will continue to publish translations of seminal articles from the same institutions that have never appeared in Western literature as well as Japanese work that could otherwise escape notice.
The Journal will assure that rapid turnaround and publication of English manuscripts will occur within six months after submission.
The new International Journal of Fluid Mechanics Research will continue to deliver up-to-date research to a wide range of fluids professionals, including mechanical, chemical, nuclear, aeronautical and civil engineers, as well as physicists and mathematicians interested in fluid dynamics and transport phenomena. IJFMR will bring you top quality research papers from an international body of contributors and a team of distinguished editors from the world's leading institutions engaged in all aspects of fluid mechanics.
IJFMR succeeded Fluid Mechanics Research beginning with Volume 22.
