Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent advancements in welding, spraying, surface cladding, and related material-joining technologies have enhanced the integrity and performance of assembled components, leading to the development of advanced manufacturing methods. Although advanced technologies have been developed for several decades now, significant and exciting innovations often arise from both the process and/or material side, providing an opportunity to solve many engineering problems.

Another key area of interest is related to the corrosion and oxidation of metal joining for welding, spraying, and surface cladding. The microstructural changes induced by welding, spraying, and surface cladding techniques can drastically modify the metal’s mechanical behavior. For that reason, it is necessary to correlate the corrosion and oxidation behavior of process parameters, microstructure, and mechanical responses in welding, spraying, and surface cladding. Finally, the simulation and modeling of the thermomechanical behavior during the processing for corrosion and oxidation resistance and the predictions of existing phases due to the thermal cycle are critical to optimizing processing (e.g., welding, spraying, surface cladding, and joining) parameters.

For this Special Issue, papers related to advanced welding, spraying, and surface cladding in metal joining for corrosion and oxidation behavior for various material spraying, surface cladding, 3D printing, laser welding, friction stir welding, electron beam welding, arc welding, and hybrid welding are welcome. Papers that combine both experimental and theoretical approaches are especially welcomed.

Contributions from around the world will add to the success of this Special Issue, which aims to spread the potential of advanced welding, spraying, and surface cladding in metal joining well-established and innovative metallic parts.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
