Special Issue "Multiscale Modeling and Simulation of Polymer-Based Composites"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2024 | Viewed by 1930
Interests: polymer; polymer-based composites; thermodynamic property; polymer processing; molecular dynamics; computational fluid dynamics; finite element method
The structure of polymers and their composites is hierarchical and rich, from atoms and polymer chains to the multiphase structure of blends and fillers, and then, to melts. It is a complex multiscale system with characteristic sizes, from nanometers to millimeters, and characteristic times, from femtoseconds to seconds. Thus, multiscale modeling and simulation methods, including density functional theory, molecular dynamics, Brownian dynamics, dissipative particle dynamics, the lattice Boltzmann method, Monte Carlo, computational fluid dynamics, and the finite element method, are the key to understand the complex behavior and various phy-chemical properties of polymers and their composites.
The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight progress in the multiscale modeling and simulation methods of polymers and their composites. Any reports and reviews covering the aspects of multiscale modeling and simulations are welcome, using methods including, but not limited to, those mentioned above.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
