Special Issue "Experimental and Computational Methods for Materials Characterization"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2023) | Viewed by 2554
Interests: non-destructive evaluation of material properties; acoustics; ultrasound; ultrasonic imaging; acoustic emission; nonlinear acoustics; guided waves
The development of experimental and computational analysis methods is a major challenge for materials science. The change in the behavior of a material when subjected to a given stress or temperature gradient must be well-understood in order to avoid rapid degradation and optimize the design and elaboration of materials and structures. In order to achieve this goal, different experimental and computational methods have been developed to improve the characterization and interpretation of results.
This Special Issue aims to bring together the research of young scientists and experts interested in studying the changes in physical properties (acoustical, mechanical, etc.) at different scales. Novel scientific and review articles that present new computational and/or experimental findings will therefore be considered for publication.
This Special Issue is open to scientists conducting experimental and/or numerical research in one of the fields listed below. However, this list is not exhaustive and can cover other topics that offer insights from a broader perspective on the development and implementation of:
- Defect characterization in structural materials (composites, concrete, etc.);
- Corrosion characterization;
- Characterization of mechanical properties of materials;
- Inverse techniques for materials characterization;
- Numerical modeling for materials characterization;
- Characterization of materials under extreme conditions;
- Imaging techniques for materials characterization;
- Case studies on in situ implementation;
- Structural behavior and failure mode interpretation;
- Use of machine/deep learning in data analysis;
- Numerical modeling and analytical study;
- Novel characterization methods;
New applications for in situ materials characterization.

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 2600 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.
