Metallurgical processes have played a highly scientific and industrial role in materials technology since the beginning of last century. One of the most important and complicated problems in this field is obtaining materials with the required chemical composition, structure and properties.
One solution to this problem depends on progress in computer technology, modeling of real industrial processes for which there were previously unknown solutions, or these methods were so tedious that they proved to be unsuitable for practical application. The development of modeling methods for predicting the chemical composition and microstructure of the weld and cast metal, opens up the possibility of optimizing the metallurgical process in the design stage by selecting the initial materials as well as technological parameters that would ensure the materials’ required properties.
Another solution depends on the development of combined novel technologies where traditional metallurgy joins up with advanced techniques such as nanoscience. During the last decade there were more and more works dedicated to the interaction between metallic materials and nano-compounds for obtaining materials with enhanced mechanical, physical and chemical properties.
The scope of the forthcoming Special Issue will focus on recent innovative and pioneering works in the field of metallurgical processes of welding, joining and casting. Topics include, without being limited to:
- Ferrous and non-ferrous welding processes
- Advanced methods of metal joining
- Mathematical modeling of welding and build-up processes
- Casting of advanced materials
- Alloying and modification of ferrous and non-ferrous alloys
We invite our colleagues to submit a manuscript which can be in the form of a full paper, communication or a review to this Special Issue.

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.
