Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue is devoted to numerical modeling in materials science (understood as both materials and processes), with a special focus on materials' nano-/micro-structures across multiple length and times scales. Atomic, nano-, micro-, meso-, and macro-scale modeling as well as multi-scale approaches are the subject of interest. Computer simulations in real 3D nano-/ micro-structures, obtained, e.g., by computed tomography, are strongly desired. Authors are invited to submit their latest results; both original papers and reviews are welcome. Particular fields of application may be diverse (fuel cells, batteries, reinforced concrete, composite materials, etc.), and the topics covered in this issue may include, but are not limited to:
- Atomic to macro-scale modeling across length and time scales;
- The modeling of materials and processes, including their nano-/micro-structure;
- Methods of nano-/micro-structure characterization in 2D and 3D;
- Advances in X-ray computed tomography (XCT) and other 3D characterization methods;
- Three-dimensional segmentation, mesh generation, and numerical methods;
- Computational thermodynamics in materials modeling;
- Inverse problems and determination of models parameters.
These papers should demonstrate the need for models to design newer materials and systems, as well as the use of models for improving the efficiency and durability of existing systems, by performing model-based sensitivity analysis.

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.
