Special Issue "Corrosion Behavior of Stainless Steels and Single Crystal Superalloys"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: corrosion; stress corrosion cracking; electrochemistry; materials characterization
Since the appearance of stainless steels during the 1910s and 1920s, the number of applications for these alloys has grown enormously. Today, stainless steels and single crystal superalloys are gaining favor with designers in a plethora of industries, where they are required to meet high mechanical performance and appropriate corrosion resistance. The resistance to corrosion is paramount, as the costs of maintenance and the risk of accidents increase with the uses of alloys in increasingly more demanding environments.
This Special Issue is focused on the use of stainless steels and superalloys in highly demanding environments as well as novel corrosion protection measures to prevent or delay the corrosion process. Topics of interest include corrosion behavior in demanding environments, environmental assisted cracking of alloys, surface modifications, and use of coatings or novel inhibitors.

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 1800 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.
