Special Issue Information
Various aspects of the creep and deformation behavior of metals and alloys at elevated temperatures are of great interest to materials scientists. Creep resistance is an extremely important characteristic to be evaluated for structural materials that are used, for example, in aircraft gas turbines, fossil power plants, nuclear reactors, etc. New heat-resistant materials such as nickel-based superalloys, heat-resistant austenitic and martensitic steels, light alloys are being developed to meet the requirements for components operating at high temperatures. Advanced materials are designed to withstand creep based on the different approaches, increasing their strengthening from solid solution, second-phase particles and dislocation structure. On the other hand, an understanding of the deformation behavior of metals and alloys can help us to increase their hot workability and obtain the desired microstructure and properties of the finished product.
The previous Special Issue collected very interesting papers on the different aspects of the creep and deformation behavior of various Ni-based superalloys, CrMnFeCoNi high-entropy alloy, heat-resistant martensitic and austenitic steels, including ultra-high interstitial austenitic steel, presented by leading material science research groups. Perhaps not all interested authors have shared their scientific results. In this issue, we seek to emphasize the mechanisms of plastic deformation and creep in advanced materials. We cordially invite submissions related to the experimental and theoretical investigations on this topic, including the simulations and modeling of microstructural, textural evolutions, technological and operational properties.

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.
