Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Products made through additive manufacturing have attracted great attention in engineering and healthcare contexts and society as a whole. Wear is one of the most common failure modes of products fabricated through additive manufacturing, which raises concerns about their safety and reliability.

The materials, structures, and processing involved in additive manufacturing have a profound influence on their wear behavior. We need to gain more knowledge of wear fundamentals, wear mechanisms, wear modes, and the influence of the surface finish and microstructures of additively manufactured products. This Special Issue aims to gather deeper knowledge of the wear failure of additively manufactured products, which covers aspects related to wear modeling and validation, wear testing methods, etc. These studies will enable the development of future additively manufactured products with improved wear properties.

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. Lubricants 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.
