Interests: metal forming; sheet metal forming; design and manufacturing; severe plastic deformation
Interests: high-performance manufacturing; precision machining; condition monitoring
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: sheet metal forming, bulk metal forming, and sheet-bulk metal forming and different modeling techniques, such as the slip line field technique, slab method, visioplasticity, finite difference method, upper bound method, and finite element analysis. The Special Issue also covers all forming processes and modeling methods, including bulk forming, sheet forming, forming in near-melt conditions (thixoforming, injection molding, film blowing), powder forming, hydro-forming, hot stamping, micro-forming, incremental forming, thermo-forming, multipoint forming, extrusion additive manufacturing, laser sintering, severe plastic deformation techniques, etc. Other manufacturing technologies, such as cutting and machining, can be considered if the article focuses on plastic deformations. The Special Issue also intends to present the fundamental development trends in the field together with the most recent advances in the use of metallic materials—synthesis, advanced experimental characterization, material modeling, and engineering applications. All these topics will be covered in this collection of contributions, as will a large assortment of metals and alloys, including cast iron, steel, magnesium, aluminum, titanium, and metal matrix composites, non-precious and precious alloys, etc., together with their use.

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.
