Special Issue "Fracture Behaviour of Innovative Materials under Different Enviromental Conditions"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2017)

The interest in fracture assessment of steel and other alloys at high temperature and under aggressive environments has increased continuously in the last few years. However, fracture of components under these conditions has not been deeply investigated, experimentally nor theoretically.
The applications in which the fracture phenomenon is affected by high temperature and aggressive corrosive environments are of considerable interest and involve different industrial sectors, such as transportation, energy, and metal-manufacturing (e.g., jet engine components, nuclear power plant, pressure vessel, hot rolling of metal). To provide as optimum a performance as possible in these high demanding conditions, it is necessary to be aware of the application and of proper tools to perform the fracture and fatigue assessment under these conditions.
The present Special Issue aims at filling that gap.

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.
