Special Issue "Welding Technologies in Materials: Numerical Investigation, Mechanism, Experiment"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 October 2023) | Viewed by 4336
Material welding technologies have been developing for many centuries through practices and experience, without much detailed knowledge on the temperature field, mass transport, or stress evolution, if these concepts were even recognized. In the past several decades, the science and technology of material welding have rapidly developed. Numerical investigations of welding provide insights into the multiphysics phenomena and the possibilities of feedback control. Research on welding mechanisms is arousing interest in controlling existing techniques as well as developing new ones. Well-designed experiments are being used to test welding hypotheses, develop new recipes, and benchmark physical and chemical parameters of the process, with the results compared with those of numerical studies. Recently, the knowledge of welding has also been providing the base for additive manufacturing and 3D printing.
This Special Issue will provide readers up-to-date information on the recent progress in experimental, numerical, and mechanistic studies of welding technologies in materials, at scales ranging from macro to nano.
Contributing papers are solicited in the following areas:
- Multiphysics and multiscale modeling of welding metallic, ceramic, or polymeric materials.
- Investigations into existing and emerging welding mechanisms.
- Welding process optimization techniques.
- In situ monitoring and ex situ experimental studies of welding.
- Hybrid welding techniques with the use of various heat sources.
- Defects and stress control in welding.

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.
