Special Issue "Plasticity and Metal Forming"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 1482
Interests: Hydroforming; Plastic forming; Formability; Additive manufacturing
Plasticity and metal forming are important methods of metal processing in the modern manufacturing industry. The progress of plasticity and metal forming and processing, including the control and characterization of materials in all processing steps and their final performance analysis, is the scope of this Special Issue. Nowadays, with the extensive use of new materials and composite materials in the manufacturing industry, the requirements for plasticity and metal forming processes are continuously increasing to meet the requirements of lightweight products. At the same time, breakthroughs have been made in the development of a series of technologies related to plasticity and metal forming, such as numerical control processing, artificial intelligence, and integrated manufacturing, and new technologies and processes for plasticity and metal forming are constantly emerging.
This Special Issue welcomes articles that focus on new plasticity and metal processing and manufacturing methods and their impact on the performance of end products. Fully controllable fast and low-cost processes especially remain of interest, with a high implementation potential in plasticity and metal forming that allows producing high-performance products.

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
