Special Issue Information
Foundry engineering is still a strongly developing field of material science and an important branch of the production of metallic materials in the world. In this branch are realized a lot of novel and innovative studies within a framework of research and development works. The results of these studies are published in high-range journals such as Materials and the papers concerning foundry engineering are very popular and usable for many academic scientists and engineering work in many industries. Therefore, given the great potential for development in this field of science and industry, I invite you to submit your valuable articles to this Special Issue entitled “Research and Development in the World Foundry Engineering: Materials, Properties and Applications”, published in the journal Materials. This Special Issue is a continuation of previously published by MDPI with me as Guest Editor the book entitled “Novel Material and Technological Solutions in Foundry Engineering”, ISBN 978-3-0365-4394-9. The scope of this new Special Issue is focused on traditional cast materials such as ferrous alloys, i.e., cast steel or cast iron, and nonferrous metals alloys, i.e., Al, Cu, Mg, Zn and others, as well as bimetallic and composite castings manufactured using different technologies, for example, gravity casting, pressure casting, semi-solid casting, squeeze casting, continuous casting and others.
Once again, I cordially invite you to submit your original research papers or review articles that describe the current state of the art within the scope of this Special Issue “Research and Development in the World Foundry Engineering: Materials, Properties and Applications”.

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. Materials 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 2300 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.
