Interests: material and physical aspects of welding of steels
Steels are still an undisputable material for many of constructions made today. Both stainless and ordinary C-Mn steels have developed significantly over the last few years, as a response to new demands for strength, corrosion resistance, etc., for a more sustainable future. However, to make effective use of these steels, they need to be weldable. This Special Issue will deal with welding of modern steels, both newer steels and application of new welding techniques for the lower strength levels as well as new very high strength steels. It will also cover welding of stainless steels, with its multitude of alloys.
Significant research is going on around the world about welding of these new steels, in terms of steel design, consumable design and welding techniques, which need to be highlighted. Papers on experimental investigations as well as numerical analyses are welcome to illustrate the progress made within this field.

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 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 1400 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.
