Abstract: The importance of design in natural and engineered flow systems is undisputed. It is not only essential to life, but also plays a crucial role in our technological world. In Nature, it arises organically, spontaneously, and is the constructal path for systems to persist in time. The generation of the best design is the target of engineered flow systems. Fluid dynamics and thermodynamics have played a crucial role in the search for these flow designs. Analytical, numerical (CFD) and experimental studies played crucial roles in many technological breakthroughs. They provide the frameworks for understanding, simulating and interpreting flow phenomena. The collection of the articles in this issue, along with a complementary and expansive volume devoted to the same subject, reflect and reaffirm the importance and relevance of the study of flow design in natural and man-made flow systems in the twenty-first century.
