Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The ever increasing usage of structural materials in extreme environment, lightweighting, renewable and nuclear energy applications requires a higher performance to be exhibited from these materials. Thermo-mechanical processing (TMP) of structural materials at large strains, strain rates and high/cryo temperatures can greatly enhance their properties and performance while also allowing them to be produced at large quantities to satisfy the increasing demand. These processes can also achieve non-equilibrium or gradient (heterogenous) microstructures which can enable new or unprecedented properties. In addition to the property enhancements, it is possible to achieve new alloys and composites of the structural materials with the thermo-mechanical processing, which otherwise would not be possible with liquid-phase or other processing routes.

This Special Issue of JMMP seeks contributions from both conventional (rolling, extrusions, forging, etc.) and non-conventional routes for the enhancement of properties and/or the production of new alloys and composites of structural materials. While mechanical properties are the prime importance, contributions in electrical, magnetic, and chemical properties are also welcomed. Submissions on high-temperature alloys, high-entropy alloys, bimetals, metal matrix composites are encouraged as well as traditional structural materials such as iron, steels, and aluminum alloys. Another area of interest in this Special Issue is new and novel TMP for the sustainable and energy-efficient production of structural materials in large quantities.

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. Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing 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 1600 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.
