Special Issue in Materials: Heat Treatment of Metallic Materials in Modern Industry—Volume II
Metallic alloys are key materials for many branches of current industry. Steel is still the most widely used metallic material, but non-ferrous metals, especially light metals and their alloys, are becoming more and more important for modern industry. In order to obtain the best achievable properties, the means of processing metallic alloys have undergone a significant development over the decades, and this trend still continues. In foundries, casting methods are continuously developed in order to make the process more eco-friendly and obtain higher-quality castings. This branch of forming had been enriched by a group of severe plastic deformation techniques, which enable us to obtain bulk nanostructured materials easily. Powder metallurgy, which was initially developed in order to process metals with high melting points and cermets, is continuously developed using a wide group of methods, which enable us to obtain fine-grained semi-products with properties exceeding those of known alloys, as well as net-shaped products. This group of methods also covers additive manufacturing processes, including selective laser melting, direct energy deposition, and others. The metals processed by all the above methods still require appropriate heat treatment.
This Special Issue covers new ground-breaking trends in casting, forming, powder metallurgy, additive manufacturing, and heat-treatment processes for metals and their alloys.
We kindly invite you to submit a manuscript(s) for publication in this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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.
