Special Issue "Aluminium Alloys: Microstructure, Properties, Heat Treatment, Forming and Welding"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2023) | Viewed by 4998
Interests: aluminium alloys; severe plastic deformation; microstructrure characterization; heat treatment; strength and ductility
Aluminium alloys have low density and relatively high strength. With these advantages, Al alloys have been widely used in transport industry, especially automotive and aerospace. The increasing applications in Al alloys have the potential to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emission.
The main scope of this Special Issue of Metals is to reveal the relationship between the microstructures and properties of novel aluminium alloys fabricated by casting, forming, welding, plastic deformation, heat treatment, additive manufacturing and other new techniques. This Special Issue also intends to publish articles revealing fundamental theory on the strengthening, corrosion and thermodynamics of novel Al alloys during material design, fabrication and manufacturing processes. We welcome articles covering the atomic characterization of specific microstructures using advanced techniques. We invite you to contribute research works on improving the properties of aluminium alloys.

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.
