Focus and Coverage

IJFE is the periodical of the Fluid Engineering Institution of the Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society, founded by Hefei General Machinery Research Institute Co., Ltd. (HGMRI) and supervised by the China National Machinery Industry Corporation. IJFE is also supported by Zhejiang Sci-Tech University in cooperation with AIP Publishing as the publisher. It has been granted as High Starting Point New Journal by China Association for Science and Technology. The journal is Gold Open Access, authors are not responsible for any publication charges and the papers are free for all to read and download.

International Journal of Fluid Engineering (IJFE) publishes various types of fundamental and engineering application-oriented research relating to fluid mechanics. The journal publishes research work of flow problems with fluids as the working medium that plays a central supporting role in major projects, major equipment and strategic products. IJFE provides a platform for researchers and practitioners to publish their work and exchange ideas in this field. Topical coverage includes:

Flow issues in the field of aeronautics and aerospace, including but not limited to:


  • Aerodynamic layout of aero engine,
  • Multi-physics flow control and aerodynamic noise control,
  • Cryogenic flow in liquid rocket engine,
  • Turbulent combustion,
  • Hot gas flow and fluid excitation,
  • Vehicle in-orbit refueling and flow characteristics in microgravity environment, etc.
