Thermophysical (heat capacity, thermal expansion, thermal conductivity, and diffusivity) properties of materials (building, ceramic, composite, plastic, metallic, or noncrystalline) are known for their practical applications. Therefore, it is crucial to study the relationship between these key properties and individual details of the manufacturing process from a experimental or theoretical point of view. The description of the behavior of materials and products under nonstationary thermal boundary conditions in a broader temperature interval requires the knowledge of dilatometric characteristics of the materials, the dependence of the thermal conductivity or diffusivity on the temperature, and also the temperature dependencies of heat capacity. The knowledge of thermophysical properties provides the opportunity for optimization of thermal processing of materials and thermal strain of products. Additionally, detailed knowledge on a given material and its properties provides the opportunity to find its specific practical applications. In the field of the measurement of thermophysical properties, there exist a large number of experimental methods: differential thermal analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetry, thermodilatometry, calorimetry, steady-state methods, and transient methods.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue of Materials. Full papers, short communications, and reviews are all 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. Materials 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 2300 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.
