Special Issue "Machining of Composites and Multi-Stacks of Aerospace Materials"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 July 2016)
The aerospace and modern manufacturing industries are driving the use of advanced materials, such as composites, titanium, aluminum, and all combinations of these materials, to constitute the multi-stacks or hybrids materials. The properties of these materials make them difficult to machine. Especially, problems, such as rapid tool wear and chatter, delamination of some composite layers, and thermal (or mechanical) degradation of the matrix during machining of composites. The objectives of this Special Issue, focusing on machining of composites and multi-stacks of aerospace materials, are:
- To provides in depth analysis towards machining of these kinds of materials;
- Influence of the machining process (conventional and non-conventional) and the damages generated;
- Impact of the damages of machining on the structural integrity;
- Understand questions associated with the machinability of these materials.

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 1500 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.
