With many of today’s emerging technologies, the primary emphasis is on the mechanical properties of the metallic materials used in the fields of ocean, air and aerospace, bridge and nuclear engineering. Because the mechanical property is an extremely important indicator to evaluate whether the materials can be applied in the above fields. Strength is the main indicator of the mechanical property. Different strengthening mechanisms, such as phase transformation strengthening, solid-solution strengthening, dislocation strengthening, grain-boundary strengthening, precipitation strengthening, and load transfer via the introduction of strong phases, can be used to achieve high strength/hardness. These strengthening methods accompany with various deformation mechanism, such as Transformation Induced Plasticity (TRIP) and Twinning Induced Plasticity (TWIP) et al. Achieving high strength-ductility synergy is a long-time challenge and becomes a topic of general interest.
This Special Issue will bring together high-quality research and review articles on preparation, microstructure, mechanical properties, and diverse applications of metallic materials. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Alloy design and preparation of metallic materials;
- Microstructure characterization and mechanical properties of steel, high entropy alloy, aluminum alloy, titanium alloy and magnesium alloy, et al.;
- EBSD, TEM and APT;
- Strengthening and deformation mechanisms.
We kindly invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Original research articles, perspectives and reviews are all welcome.

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. Crystals 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).
