Special Issue "Recent Achievements in Rotary, Linear and Friction Stir Welding of Metals Alloys"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2018)
Rotary, linear, and friction stir welding of metals alloys are solid-state joining processes in which a joint between two metals can be formed by a combination of frictional heating and applied force.
While linear and rotary friction processes have been established as niche technologies in aero-engines and dissimilar metals circular parts, respectively, friction stir welding is fast becoming the process of choice for manufacturing lightweight transport structures.
As the interest of scientists and researchers have been growing exponentially, this Special Issue aims to collect recent meaningful researches that can help to significantly improve our understanding and the diffusion of those welding processes in the manufacturing practice of joining dissimilar and recent developed metal alloys.
The desired papers would report on the effect of frictional heating and applied force on metals microstructure and mechanical properties. Numerical and analytical models would explore the complexity of the thermal and mechanical phenomena interactions during the welding process. Quality solutions would warrant the reliability and reproducibility of the weld.
Therefore, contributions on weld characterization, quality solutions and process modeling of “Rotary, Linear and Friction Stir Welding” are encouraged and welcomed from academic and industrial experts and researchers.

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.
