Special Issue "Advanced Mechanical Testing of Powder Metallurgy Alloys"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2018
The development of advanced powder metallurgy materials and processing technologies has been a central pillar of innovation within the global PM community for decades. Indeed, the outcomes of these endeavors have underpinned a prolific expansion in the scope of commercial end-use applications. As many of these represent new and exciting areas, conventional mechanical property data, such as hardness and static tensile testing no longer suffice and a heightened need for advanced mechanical property data has frequently emerged. With this in mind, and your stature as a prolific researcher in this field, I cordially invite you to submit an original manuscript on advanced mechanical testing of powder metallurgy materials to be published as part of a Special Issue in the journal Metals. Focal areas of interest include (but are not limited to) dynamic mechanical testing (fatigue, impact, fracture toughness, etc.), thermal mechanical testing, tribological testing, impulse excitation testing, and elevated temperature testing accompanied by microstructural and/or thermal analyses so as to instill a comprehensive understanding of the observed mechanical behaviour. Ferrous and non-ferrous alloys are both of interest, as well as metal matrix composites made thereof.

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. Metals 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 1200 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.
