Special Issue "Multiscale Fatigue Design"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 January 2019)
Prof. Dr. Filippo Berto
With the advance of new materials in different engineering fields, and in particular of nano-materials and thin coatings, attention has to be paid to the fracture mechanism at different scale levels. This issue is not easy to deal with because, in small bodies, the high ratio between surface and volume makes the local discontinuities present in the material non negligible.
This Special Issue embraces interdisciplinary work aimed at understanding and deploying mechanisms involved in fatigue damage and failures occurring at all scale levels (from nano to macro), advancing experimental and theoretical failure analyses, modelling of the structural response with respect to both local and global failures, and structural design that accounts for scale and time effects in preventing catastrophic failures of components and structures.

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. 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 1500 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.
