Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During the manufacture of metallic components, residual stress is inevitably generated, which has a major influence on the structural integrity and service performance of products. Whether using traditional welding/assembly/forming processes or recently developed additive manufacturing processes, residual stress has always been a key factor that affects the reliability of mechanical structures.

The objective of this Special Issue is to review recent contributions to the technical and scientific advancements and challenges in residual stress analysis methods. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, experimental, theoretical and simulation analyses of residual stress.

Authors are invited to publish the results of their research on all of these topics, which involve advancements that will broaden the field of stress analysis. Papers could concern the microstructures and/or atypical geometries characterized or in the development of specific and adaptive methodologies for residual stress analysis in metallic materials.

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 2000 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.
