Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The mechanical and functional properties of metals are strongly related to their microstructures, which are, themselves, inherited from thermal and mechanical processing. Thus, the precise numerical modeling of metallic materials is an important topic, largely due to the interest in using predictive simulations of material behavior to facilitate the development of new materials, as well as the academic interest in such strategies to improve our understanding of metallurgical phenomena. In recent decades, several discretization/resolution-based numerical methods have been developed to model solid-state phenomena that occur during thermomechanical treatments of metallic materials under the concepts of computational metallurgy, digital materials, digital shadows and digital twins. Metallurgical mechanisms include: recrystallization, grain growth, recovery, ductile damage, fracture, martensitic transformations, solid/solid diffusive phase transformations and, more globally surface and volume diffusion mechanisms; the latter lead to precipitation, precipitate coalescence, spheroidization, Ostwald ripening, powder consolidation and densification in powder metallurgy. This Special Issue is dedicated to the illustration of recent works in this discipline.

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. Materials 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 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.
