Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Advances in Welding and Joining Technologies
The development of new high-intensity laser sources with lower wavelengths presents new challenges and phenomena for the welding pool and key hole, especially for steel and aluminum. High-intensity IR lasers produce a large amount of spatter at high speed before the pre-humping regime, while green lasers exhibit different behaviors during the transition from heat conduction to key-hole welding. This Special Issue will focus on models resulting from experimental investigation as well as modeling and simulation approaches that can help us to understand the melt flow conditions around the key hole and can be used to evaluate key hole dynamics. In addition, papers correlating spatter formation with the manipulation of the melt pool and key hole dynamics are welcome.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
