Special Issue Information
According to the constituent phases in alloys and composites, materials can exhibit various performance characteristics, thus possessing great potential in different application cases, such as aeronautics and astronautics, the automobile industry, and the electronic and electrical industry. Alloys and composites with high stiffness, high strength, and good ductility can be used as load-bearing components, those with high hardness and ductility can be used as cutting tools, and those with high corrosion resistance can be used as components in seawater or in a chemical atmosphere environment, whereas the heating furnace needs both heating components with a high heat liberation rate, as well as heat insulation components to prevent heat loss.
The aim of this SI is to understand the basic principles of property design and tailoring in alloys and composites, to be used as structural or functional materials. The materials of interest include amorphous alloys, high-entropy alloys, lightweight alloys, metal–matrix composites, ceramic–matrix composites, and polymer–matrix composites. To design and tailor macroscopic properties as structural or functional materials, such as macroscopic stiffness and strength, the phase constituent, volume fraction, and average size of each phase, interface bonding should be well investigated. A thorough understanding of how the composition and processing parameters influence the macroscopic properties will definitely help toward new breakthroughs in the field of alloys and composites and their use in different cases.

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 2300 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.
