Special Issue "Advanced High Temperature Shape Memory Alloys"
A special issue of Crystals (ISSN 2073-4352).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
Interests: high-temperature structural materials; Ti alloys; shape memory alloys; TiPd; creep; high-temperature deformation; oxidation behavior
Shape memory alloys are used as sensors and actuators, and some devises are used in a wide variety of application fields such as medical, home electrical appliances, and industries. Although some interesting alloys have been developed in the temperature range between 100 and 200 ˚C, applications at high temperatures are limited due to their poor shape recovery above 200 ˚C. The improvement of shape recovery, the strength of alloys at high temperatures, stable cyclic properties, and microstructures at high temperatures are crucial issues for high-temperature shape memory alloys.
We invite researchers to submit papers related to high-temperature shape memory alloys to discuss potential materials, the method of improvement of shape recovery, the strength of alloys, the stability of microstructure and cyclic properties, and the enhancement of the lifespan of high-temperature shape memory alloys, not only the alloys that can be used above 200˚C, but also the alloys that can be used between 100 and 200 ˚C. We also welcome papers that show possible applications for high-temperature shape memory alloys to encourage researchers working in 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. Crystals 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 1600 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.
