Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Creep and fatigue resistance are the critical requirements for the materials used at high temperatures. Advanced heat-resistant materials such as nickel-based superalloys, heat-resistant austenitic and martensitic steels, and light alloys are being developed for applications in aircraft gas turbines, fossil power plants, nuclear reactors etc. To ensure structural safety, various studies of materials’ strength under complicated conditions are carried out:

  • Creep deformation and mechanisms;
  • Low cycle fatigue, high cycle fatigue, very high cycle fatigue;
  • Creep-fatigue interaction testing;
  • Effect of composition, microstructural design, phase composition on the creep and fatigue behavior;
  • Microstructural evolution under creep and cyclic loading;
  • Failure analysis;
  • Modeling and simulation of creep and fatigue deformation;
  • Crack growth;
  • Lifetime prediction, etc.

The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest achievements in the theoretical and experimental investigations of creep, fatigue and creep-fatigue behavior of metallic materials.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome.

I look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
