The surface modification of materials through the application of severe plastic deformation (SPD) provides an opportunity for achieving grain refinement and compressive residual stress. Surface modification techniques impose very high strains without introducing significant changes in the dimensions and chemistry of the materials; in turn, they change the microstructure, mechanical properties and improve the tribological behavior. This Special Issue outlines research based on surface modification techniques, such as shot peening (SP), laser shock peening (LSP), high-pressure torsion (HPT), ultrasonic nanocrystal surface modification (UNSM), surface mechanical attrition treatment (SMAT), equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) and many others. We invite researchers from around the world to submit original research papers and review articles on the improvements in microstructure, mechanical and tribological properties of materials by the application of severe plastic deformation surface modification techniques. Moreover, research on numerical simulation analysis of those surface modifications techniques is also very welcome due to the continuously increasing demands on advanced computer technology.

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 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.
