The complex interrelations of manufacturing processes, surface and subsurface properties, and the functional performance of manufactured parts are of high relevance for both academia and industrial applications. The achievable surface integrity of a product is strongly influenced by the way the part was produced and is decisive for its functionality. Thus, understanding the effects of manufacturing processes such as machining, forming, additive manufacturing, and others with regard to the resulting condition of the surface and subsurface layers in terms of hardness, residual stress, microstructural alterations, or chemical changes is the aim of several studies. Worldwide leading experts are dealing with surface-integrity-related research and have contributed significantly to a knowledge-based manner to manufacture parts with superior functional performance. Hence, this Special Issue is devoted to recent work presenting new findings and interrelations focusing on manufacturing processes, the resulting surface integrity, and the influence on the functional performance.
We are particularly interested in (but not limited to) contributions that focus on topics such as:
- Surface and subsurface properties after machining
- Depth effects of different manufacturing processes
- New approaches to generating advantageous surface integrity
- Generating desired surface and subsurface states by inverse engineering
- Advanced models and simulations revealing complex interrelations between processes and the surface integrity
- Surface integrity of parts manufactured on an additive and subtractive basis
- Functional performance by means of fatigue strength, wear resistance, corrosion behavior, and others with respect to manufactured surfaces
- New metrology techniques to assess surface-integrity-related entities

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. Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
