Special Issue "Corrosion Studies of Metal Matrix Composites/Alloys at Low and High Temperatures"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 May 2017)
This Special Issue will present research and reviews on the subject of “Corrosion Studies of Metal Matrix Composites/Alloys at Low and High Temperatures”. Metal matrix composites/alloys (MMC/A) are among the most important structure materials in several industries, such as aerospace, automobiles and mineral applications, due to their high strength, high tensile, compressibility, and other mechanical properties. Studies of the corrosion of such metal matrix composites/alloys are of utmost importance for the fabrication of the material. Low density materials are essential from the structure point of view. Such materials can be produced with an appropriate coating to reduce corrosion rate, although not necessarily completely. Various metal matrix composites/alloys have been tested by different research groups, such as aluminum, titanium, iron, silicon, and many other metal matrices. Corrosion studies will therefore be our main discussion point in this Special Issue. However, we also wish to present various fabrications and properties of MMC/A.

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 papers will be 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. Materials 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 1600 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.
