Solidification occurs in several material processing methods, such as in casting, welding, and laser additive manufacturing of metals, and it controls the nano- and microstructures and the overall properties of the products. Recent advances in experimental and computational modeling techniques have made it possible to more effectively study atomistic and microscale mechanisms that control the solidification structures and formation and evolution of solidification defects. Along this direction, this Special Issue solicits articles demonstrating recent advancements in the following areas:
- Experimental studies of solid-liquid interfaces and solidification nano- and microstructures, including in situ experiments.
- Computational modeling at different length scales, including atomistic simulations (e.g., molecular dynamics) and mesoscale modeling (e.g., phase-field modeling) of solid-liquid interfaces and solidification structures (e.g., dendritic structures).
- Experimental and/or modeling studies of solidification defects and their effects on mechanical and physical properties of solidified materials.

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.
