Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Further to the success of the Special Issue of Polymers entitled “Multifunctional Polymer Molding Processing of Polymers”, we are delighted to reopen the Special Issue, now entitled “Multifunctional Polymer Molding Processing of Polymers II”.

This Special Issue aims to discuss the preparation and characterization of new ecologically friendly polymer materials, also containing recycled materials or waste that should find use in specific engineering applications. The development of polymer engineering and the search for new, innovative materials with often specific properties have resulted in the expansion of the area of their application, especially in the construction, machines and devices, packaging and medical industries; they have also expanded the scope of their processing methods, such as 3D printing. The practical application of new polymeric materials requires knowledge of their processing, mechanical, electrical and thermal properties, as well as a recognition of the changes in these properties during the operation and destruction of polymers.

For this reason, this Special Issue is an excellent opportunity to present and publish the latest research results in the field of the processing of polymers and polymer-based composites, particularly their applications and physicochemical and mechanical properties.

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).

In this paper, the diffusion law of helium gas inside composite materials was obtained through numerical research and an experimental approach. The influence of fiber and the fiber–resin interface on permeability was discussed in the actual numerical model. It was found that the leak rate and the mass concentration at the fiber–resin interface were higher than those in the resin, and the leak rate symmetrically distributed along the horizontal central line. Meanwhile, a homogenized model for the leak rate simulation in carbon fiber composite components was established, and its accuracy was verified through the experiment and the actual numerical model. The simulated result and the test data demonstrated that the leak rate increased with the pressure and decreased with the thickness of the specimen. Full article
