This Special Issue will provide a forum for the discussion of the correlation between mechanical properties and any kinds of material damage modes (wear, corrosion, fatigue, etc.). It is important to understand the different types of mechanical and chemical damages, which are usually thought of as gradual deteriorations that lead to a catastrophic failure of various machines and structures. It is well known that the material mechanical properties and microstructure have a beneficial effect on the material’s tribo- and tribo-corrosion properties, corrosion resistance and fatigue strength, as the surface damage is the result of complex processes connected with friction (wear), fatigue (cracking), fatigue (fracture), etc. Moreover, enhanced material properties can be further improved by the application of surface engineering, which is the process of modifying or coating the surface of a component, and has an important role to play in tribology, corrosion and fatigue. This Special Issue will focus on experimental, theoretical and simulation analysis of the tribo- and tribo-corrosion properties, corrosion resistance and fatigue strength of materials by any surface engineering technologies, including design, process control and characterization. We invite researchers from around the world to submit original research papers and review articles on the wear, corrosion, fatigue, etc. of materials.

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.
