Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metallic glasses (MGs) possess an amorphous atomic structure and a unique combination of mechanical properties, that is, high yield strength, large elastic limit, and low elastic modulus. Several studies have shown that the addition of particles to MGs greatly improves their deformation behavior, resulting in metallic glass composites (MGCs) with increased ductility. This ductility enhancement depends on the nature, shape, size, and volume fraction of the reinforcing particles, while the deformation behavior of MGCs is dictated by the nature of the matrix–particle interaction. Despite the large number of studies on the plastic behavior of MGCs, little is known about the underlying atomistic deformation mechanisms. Similarly, the corrosion and tribology behavior of these composites is still poorly understood, and the search for novel processing routes and of MGC systems is ongoing.

This Special Issue will welcome theoretical, computational and experimental contributions expanding our current understanding of metallic glass composites. The submitted papers should report fundamental and/or applied research in subjects such as:

  • The processing of metallic glass composites;
  • Corrosion behavior;
  • Shear banding and plasticity;
  • Nanoglass composites;
  • Ceramic-reinforced metallic glass composites;
  • Tribology and wear resistance;
  • Novel applications.

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.
