Special Issue "Surface Modification Methods to Improve Fatigue, Fretting Fatigue, and Fretting Wear Behavior of Materials"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2015)
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to the forthcoming Special Issue “Surface Modification Methods to Improve Fatigue, Fretting Fatigue, and Fretting Wear Behavior of Materials” in Materials (Open Access Materials Science Journal; Impact Factor 1.879).
Surface modification methods are increasingly applied to a wide variety of materials, with the aim of improving their fatigue and/or fretting fatigue behavior in different applications. Ranging from mechanical surface treatments, to thermal, thermochemical, electrochemical, and surface coatings treatments, these methods can significantly change surface properties and may introduce residual stresses that may then beneficially enhance the fatigue, fretting fatigue, and/or fretting wear resistance of materials.
This Special Issue aims to present the latest developments in this interesting research area, so as to include novel surface modification techniques and technologies, new applications, such as biomedical ones, mechanisms for improvements, surface characterizations, studies concerning the effectiveness of different methods, residual stress measurements, new testing procedures, simulations, and modeling.
Research articles, review articles, and communications are invited.
Should you need any further information about this Special Issue, please do not hesitate to contact me.

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.
