The Journal of Fluids and Structures publishes original papers on all aspects of the interaction between fluids and solids.
Studies of single-physics fluid or solid mechanics problems are welcome too, provided they are motivated by and directly contribute to the understanding of an associated fluid-structure
The journal publishes theoretical, computational and experimental studies that provide new insight into the underlying physics and/or present novel methodologies. Studies dealing with specific engineering applications are welcome, provided they address clearly posed questions that are of wider interest, i.e. go beyond mere case studies.
Authors must clearly identify the novelty of their work and should provide conclusions that put the specific result obtained in their study into a wider context.
Numerical studies must include a clear assessment of associated errors via the provision of suitable mesh/timestep convergence studies; similarly, experimental studies must provide an assessment of experimental uncertainties.
The journal has no hard page limits but expects authors to provide a brief statement justifying the length of their manuscript if it is close to or exceeds 25 pages (including figures and tables, both embedded in the text, which should be typeset with a reasonable layout, e.g. 10 or 12 pt font size and standard font).
