Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As Editor-in-Chief of Thermo, I am pleased to announce this collection, entitled “Feature Papers of Thermo in 2022”. This Special Issue will be a collection of high-quality reviews and original papers from editorial board members, guest editors, and leading researchers, discussing new knowledge or new cutting-edge developments of fundamental research and applications dealing with heat and temperature aspects including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Heat and temperature;
  • Thermodynamics;
  • Calorimeters and calorimetry;
  • Thermal properties of the matter;
  • Heat transfer methods: radiation, conduction, and convection;
  • Isolated thermal systems;
  • Quantum ideal gas;
  • Energy and free energy;
  • Phases equilibrium and phase transitions;
  • Solubility phenomena;
  • Structure–properties relationships;
  • Bose–Einstein condensation;
  • Quantum fluid;
  • Canonical probability distribution;
  • Ideal/real heat engines and refrigerators;
  • Waste heat recovery;
  • Energy storage and saving;
  • Thermal exergy analysis and management.

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. Thermo is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.

Nonlinear shrinkage of the metal part during manufacturing by bound metal deposition, both on the ground and under microgravity, is considered. A multi-scale physics-based approach is developed to address the problem. It spans timescales from atomistic dynamics on the order of nanoseconds to full-part shrinkage on the order of hours. This approach enables estimation of the key parameters of the problem, including the widths of grain boundaries, the coefficient of surface diffusion, the initial redistribution of particles during the debinding stage, the evolution of the microstructure from round particles to densely-packed grains, the corresponding changes in the total and chemical free energies, and the sintering stress. The method has been used to predict shrinkage at the levels of two particles, of the filament cross-section, of the sub-model, and of the whole green, brown, and metal parts. Full article

Chemical thermodynamics is frequently thought of as being a hard subject and quite abstract. In fact, it is one of the most practical of subjects when you consider that the field of chemical engineering (responsible for endless useful applications) is effectively applied chemical thermodynamics. In this essay, examples of these applications are given, especially with respect to sustainability. The essay first considers the limits of thermodynamics and the constraints put on it in terms of the rigorous definitions of the principal function’s energy, entropy, and Gibbs energy. Full article
