About the Journal

Journal of Fluid Mechanics is the leading international journal in the field and is essential reading for all those concerned with developments in fluid mechanics. It publishes authoritative articles covering theoretical, computational and experimental investigations of all aspects of the mechanics of fluids. Each issue contains papers on both the fundamental aspects of fluid mechanics, and their applications to other fields such as aeronautics, astrophysics, biology, chemical and mechanical engineering, hydraulics, meteorology, oceanography, geology, acoustics and combustion.

The journal was founded in 1956 by George Batchelor,who was also its Editor until 1996 (with Keith Moffatt as co-Editor from 1966 to 1983). Since then the Editors have been David Crighton, Tim Pedley and Steve Davis. The current Editor is Grae Worster, assisted by Deputy Editors Paul Linden and Charles Meneveau. They are part of a team of Associate Editors who handle submissions autonomously.
