Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ceramics and composite materials have been widely used in aerospace, metallurgical equipment, and vehicles, owing to their excellent mechanical properties and stable chemical properties. Additionally, almost any material from those proposed for practical applications must be processed to make it become a component with specific practical application functions. Precision and ultra-precision machining are the most common methods of processing from materials to parts; however, surface damages, including surface burns, fractures and cracks, and rapid tool wear, are easily generated during the machining process, which inevitably affects the service life of the ceramics as well as composite material components and compromises further applications. Investigating the material removal mechanism, revealing the damage evolution involved in precision and ultra-precision machining processes, and optimizing machining process parameters are of great significance to realize the high-precision machining of ceramics and composite materials. This collection aims to summarize frontier research on the processing and surface integrity characterization of ceramics and composite materials machined via precision and ultra-precision machining processes.

The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Advanced grinding process technology;
  • Green and efficient milling;
  • Additive manufacturing;
  • Ultrasonic-vibration-assisted machining;
  • The design of grinding wheels or abrasive tools.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2100 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.
