The Springer Journal ‘Flow, Turbulence and Combustion’ (FTaC)


The journal published in association with ERCOFTAC is therefore expected that FTaC would be a primary medium for
disseminating the most innovative and highest-quality scientific output of ERCOFTAC-supported technical events.

In addition to contributed articles – constituting the large majority of FTaC’s published output – FTaC publishes special issues arising from major ERCOFTAC conferences, notably ETMM and DLES. However, there are many other opportunities that are, arguably, not sufficiently exploited – in particular, in respect of original contributions to theme issues of the Bulletin and papers arising from SIG events, such as workshops and summer schools. Both the Editor-in-Chief of FTaC and the Scientific Programme Committee of ERCOFTAC wish to see more contributions channelled from ERCOFTAC sources to FTaC. Such contributions – in the form of high-quality technical papers within the scope of FTaC – are most welcome. They will be subjected to the same rigorous review process as any other contributed manuscript.

FTaC provides a forum with global reach for the publication of original and innovative research results that contribute to the solution of fundamental and applied problems encountered in single-phase, multi-phase and reacting flows, both in idealized and real systems. This includes topics in fluid dynamics, scalar transport, multi-physics interactions and flow/turbulence control. Contributions may report research that falls within the broad spectrum of analytical, computational and experimental methods, including research pursued in academia, industry and the variety of environmental and geophysical sectors. The emphasis is on originality, timeliness, quality and thematic fit, as identified by the title of the journal and the above qualifications. Relevance to real-world problems and industrial applications will be regarded as strengths.

Contributions may be full-length research and review manuscripts or short communications (of no more than 6 printed pages). The latter may report new results, address contentious topics or contain discussions of full-length papers previously published in the journal. Short communications will benefit from rapid publication. All contributed manuscripts, as well as any invited contributions to Special or Theme Issues, will undergo rigorous peer review by three expert reviewers prior to decisions on acceptance or rejection.
