Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

High-temperature resistance is essential in many applications. The materials and alloys used for high-temperature components require a tailored combination of mechanical strength, microstructural stability and corrosion/oxidation resistance. Turbine blades, heat-exchangers, fuel nozzles, newer turbocharged engines are subjected to high tensile loads and pressures, as well as corrosive environments, all of which occurring under thermal fatigue conditions.

Operating at higher efficiency is often a key issue in order to achieve fuel economy, reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and improved vehicle performance too. The requirement of higher operating temperatures is almost mandatory for higher efficiency. This challenge will drive to continuously improve the traditional materials and develop new alloys before brittle non-metallic materials, such as oxide systems, can be thought and applied. Large opportunities are available for designing innovative materials and alloys showing improved ability to be processed, as well as higher performances.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect full papers, communications, and reviews highlighting original and recent innovations about metals, alloys and composite materials for high-temperature applications.

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 1000 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.
