Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Rolling and heat treatment are essential processes in the manufacturing process of any basic component, and they directly determine its final performance and service life. The question of how to achieve better performance while realizing the geometric shape of components has become a constant topic of debate in industrial development. Meanwhile, electromagnetic processing technology shows great potential as a novel method in property improvement, and has a wide application prospect in the advanced manufacturing of basic components. To advance the development of the processing technology of high-performance metals, it is imperative to determine the relationship between microstructure and properties in the process of rolling forming, heat treatment and electromagnetic processing.

We are pleased to invite you to submit your research papers to this Special Issue. The Special Issue covers a wide range of topics, including advanced rolling forming, heat treatment and electromagnetic processing technology of all kinds of metals.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • The manufacturing of innovative high-strength steel through novel rolling and heat treatment technology;
  • Cold/warm/hot ring rolling technologies for metals;
  • The relationship between forming, heat treatment and electromagnetic processing technology and microstructure properties of various metallic materials;
  • Microstructural design of metallic materials processed using advanced manufacturing combined with rolling;
  • The improvement of microstructure and mechanical properties of metals through applying a novel thermomechanical processing technique;
  • The modification of metallic materials through introducing an external physical field such as an electric, magnetic or electromagnetic field;
  • Numerical simulation and experiments of ring rolling processes;
  • Microstructural/mechanical characterization techniques of metals;
  • Wear, fatigue and other properties of metals.

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.
