Special Issue "Ni- and Co-Based Superalloys and Their Coatings"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2017)
Ni- and Co-based superalloys are key materials for the design of high-temperature components for aero-space propulsion, energy production, and chemical processing. These alloys can be used at temperatures of up to 90% of their melting temperature, or even higher using, e.g., cooling systems and thermal barrier coatings. Thanks to their excellent high-temperature mechanical properties and resistance to environmental degradation, these alloys will be used for a long time, despite the development of new classes of materials, such as CMCs.
The aim of this Special Issue is to focus on the latest alloy and coating developments (both chemistries and processes), on the characterization of the high temperature mechanical behavior/environmental resistance in relation with microstructure, on the repairing/rejuvenation techniques, on assembly techniques (LFW, FSW, TLP Bonding), and on the constitutive modeling of the mechanical behavior/durability. Papers mixing experimental and numerical approaches will especially be welcomed, as well as articles dealing with microstructure and mechanical characterization of alloys/coatings during
close-to service 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 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.
