Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 October 2022) | Viewed by 14702
Interests: sustainable green composites; particulate composites; syntactic foams; shape-memory polymers
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Interests: smart materials and structures; shape memory polymers; static and dynamic analysis of structures; structural health monitoring
The interest in polymer composite research is due to their wide range of applications. Filling with particles gives polymers a number of desirable properties, including increased hardness, decreased thermal expansion coefficient, improved resistance to creep, and fracture toughness. Difficulties in research on the structure–properties relationships of polymer composites, on the other hand, are due to their structural complexity.
The main aim of this Special Issue is to provide a platform for the dissemination and discussion of recent research and achievements on particulate-filled advanced composites which address various issues from theoretical and practical viewpoints. Articles on theoretical as well as experimental investigations are welcome.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- Development of novel polymeric particulate composites and syntactic foams;
- Manufacturing and properties of advanced particulate composites;
- Static and dynamic behaviours of polymeric particulate composites;
- Particulate-filled shape memory polymer composites;
- Acoustic emission diagnostics of polymeric particulate composites;
- Recycling of polymeric particulate composites.

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. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
