Special Issue "Corrosion Resistance, Mechanical Properties and Characterization of Metallic Materials and Coatings"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 March 2024 | Viewed by 5220
Interests: corrosion electrochemistry; material characterization; electron microscopy (SEM, TEM); additive manufacture of metal
Corrosion resistance and mechanical properties has been the most concern for application and development of metallic material and coatings. The microstructure of metal is closely related to its performance, either for corrosion or mechanical performance. The investigation of the relationship between structure and properties has been and will be the most functional method, to uncover the mechanism for enhancing the performance of metal and offer the foundation for developing new-era materials.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Fundamentals and application of metallic materials, coatings and microstructure characterization;
- Processes for coating deposition and modification, and the investigation of functional, protective and decorative coatings;
- Characterization techniques for metallic materials and coatings;
- Corrosion, wear, fatigue and fracture of metallic materials and coatings.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Coatings 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 2600 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.
