Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Titanium alloys are promising structural and functional materials in aerospace and civil applications owing to their highly tailorable mechanical properties associated with chemical compositions and diverse microstructures. In recent years, increasing interests are devoted to the design and fabrication of high-performance Ti alloys with high strength, high ductility, low Young’s modulus, shape memory, and superelasticity. As Ti alloys act as both low-weight metallic material and smart material with shape memory properties and low elastic modulus, the research and development of both available and new Ti alloys are vital for the Ti society. This Special Issue explores the design, phase transformation, microstructure evolution, deformation behavior, and mechanical properties of Ti alloys in order to shed light on the titanium research.

Articles concerning the design, processing, and mechanical properties of Ti alloys, as well as their deformation mechanisms, are welcome. This Special Issue will cover—but is not limited to—the following fundamental and applied research topics:

  • alloy design;
  • thermal-mechanical processing;
  • post-heat treatment;
  • precipitation;
  • microstructure evolution;
  • deformation behavior;
  • deformation mechanism;
  • mechanical properties;
  • shape memory;
  • superelasticity;
  • simulation;
  • additive manufacturing;
  • metastable phases;
  • martensitic transformation;
  • biomedical applications;
  • advanced characterization.

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.
