I would like to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue on “Metal Fracture Modeling” that will address multiple associated aspects, ranging from constitutive model proposals to numerical solution strategies.
The increased interest in the understanding of ductile fractures is partly prompted by the fact that the conventional damage models and fracture criteria in many situations fail to accurately predict ductile failure, especially for complex loading paths and for new advanced materials. There is the space, but especially the need, for new ideas and proposals to tackle these limitations and to face the associated computational challenges of ductile damage modelling, at both the micro and the macro scales.
A diverse variety of topics could be addressed, comprising:
- theoretical and numerical aspects related to advanced fully-coupled constitutive equations, including time and space discretization, complex loading conditions involving large plastic straining, non-proportional loading and strain rate effects, shear-loading effects;
- new mathematical formulations and numerical solution strategies for continuous/discontinuous transitions, size effects, mesh dependence, solution schemes involving non-local methods, phase–field models, XFEM and GFEM approaches;
- multiscale strategies for modelling ductile fracture, scale-bridging, model order reduction techniques,
and various related topics.
I hope you will contribute to this Special Issue on “Metal Fracture Modeling”.

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.
