Special Issue "Frontiers in Friction Stir Welding and Processing"
A special issue of Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing (ISSN 2504-4494).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2023) | Viewed by 16989
The Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing (JMMP) is planning a Special Issue on friction stir welding and processing. Friction stir welding (FSW) is a universal solid-state joining method for high-strength aluminum alloys. FSW and its variants are emerging along with their manufacturing applications.
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together recent scientific advancements and innovations in the field of FSW and its related technologies with an emphasis on manufacturing and materials processing. High-quality contributions that demonstrate substantial advancements in FSW, variants, and applications will be considered for publication in this issue. The desired topics of contributions include but are not limited to:
- Variants, i.e., Friction Stir Spot Welding (FSSW), refill FSSW, etc.;
- Characterization of microstructure and mechanical properties;
- Quality inspection;
- Equipment and tooling;
- Process monitoring, control, and automation;
- Modeling and simulation;
- Manufacturing applications.
JMMP warmly invites you to contribute your articles to this Special Issue if your contributions meet the requirements.

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.
