Special Issue "Thermal Properties Analysis of Polymers"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2024 | Viewed by 915
Interests: micro- and nano- scale heat transfer theory; thermal measurement; thermal management
Polymers and their composites are widely used in all aspects of daily life and industry. Whether the polymers are in the form of solids, liquids, gases, or solutions, their thermal properties analysis is of fundamental importance. With new polymers and their composites invented every day, novel temperature or thermal measuring technologies, as well as their hyphenated uses, have advanced in recent years. In order to encourage the discussion in a wider scope and a more interdisciplinary prospect, this issue includes mechanical or rheological properties that are strongly temperature-dependent in the definition of thermal properties. The success of thermal analysis hinges not only on advanced techniques, but also on a large database scale and exquisite data analysis skills. Skills such as finding the modes or patterns in multidimensional mass data may be revolutionized by recent Artificial Intelligence advancements. This Special Issue will serve as a platform for global experts to gather thermal data of various polymers, as well as new thermal measuring technologies and according to data-mining algorithms. Perspectives regarding their application feasibility are also warmly welcome.

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.
