Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

”Remelting and Casting Processes in the Production of Metals and Alloys" is a Special Issue focused on investigating and analyzing the remelting and casting processes involved in the production of metals and alloys. Remelting plays a crucial role in the recycling and refining of metals and scrap materials to obtain homogeneous materials with desired properties. Various remelting techniques, such as using an electric arc furnace (EAF), electro-slag remelting (ESR), induction melting, and vacuum refining, are evaluated to understand their advantages and limitations. Casting, on the other hand, involves pouring molten metal into molds to obtain specific shapes and forms. Different casting methods, including continuous casting (CC), sand casting, investment casting, and die casting, are explored based on factors such as complexity, cost, and production volume. Furthermore, solidification is the crucial phase in the casting process where the molten metal transitions into a solid state, determining the final shape, microstructure, and properties of the casting. This topic also focuses on the characterization and mitigation of defects that may occur during remelting and casting processes. Factors such as porosity, shrinkage, and inclusions are analyzed, and strategies for defect prevention and reduction are investigated. Advanced techniques such as computer simulations and process optimization are employed to improve casting quality and minimize defects.

This Special Issue aims to present the latest research related to advanced techniques for “Remelting and Casting Processes in the Production of Metals and Alloys”. Research reports associated with novel metallurgical technology are also welcome.

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.
