Nanostructured materials have been developed for the last few decades, and the unique properties of these materials contribute to the great attention they have received. Nanostructured coatings are now used for many tribological applications, e.g., as anti-wear coatings in bearings, for abrasive wear elements in the automobile and aircrafts industry, as a wear protection coating for high-speed cutting tools, as well as in thermal barrier coatings (TBC) in hot sections of gas turbines, rockets, and space vehicles, and in devices in renewable energy systems. Due to the risk of dynamic loading in these applications, the erosion resistance of these coatings should be investigated. Cavitation degradation is the most undesirable due to the action of dynamic pulses with amplitude up to few GPa, and their duration up to a few ms, or even s. The cavitation erosion resistance of these coatings depends on their structure, including defects and properties, the properties of the substrate material, as well as the cavitation intensity.
The scope of this Special Issue will serve as a forum for papers on the following concepts:
- Degradation of nanostructured coatings caused by reapeted impacts;
- Cavitation erosion resistance of monolayer coating;
- Cavitation erosion resistance of multilayer coatings;
- The role of coating defects on cavitation degradation;
- The role of coating structure on cavitation resistance;
- Influence of cavitation intensity on degradation of nanostructured coating;
- Cavitation–corrosion resistance of nanostructured coating;
- Cavitation–slurry erosion reistance of nanostructured coating;
- Influence of solid particle impact velocity on eroson resistance of nanostructured coating;
- Degradation nanostructured coating caused by solid particle impacts.

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. Coatings 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 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.
