Special Issue "Advanced and High Performance Metallic Foams"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2020.

Interests: metallic foams; metal matrix composites; mechanical testing; fatigue; fracture mechanics
Metallic foams are ever and ever developing. Nowadays, advanced or high-performance metallic foams (such as low-cost, high-strength, high-stiffness, excellent energy absorbers, etc.) are emerging. Researchers in the metallic foams community are pushing the boundaries further and further to produce stronger, lighter, higher-performance foams.
It is my pleasure to invite you to publish your metallic foam-related research works in the Special Issue, ‘Advanced and High-Performance Metallic Foams’, of Materials as a full paper, short communication, or review. This Special Issue covers all types and aspects of metallic foams from design through production and intensive testing, including, but not limited to liquid- and solid-state and 3D additive production methods, blowing agents, foaming, macro-, meso-, and microstructures of foams, structural reverse engineering, modelling of metallic foams, quasi-static, dynamic and cyclic mechanical properties (compressive, tensile, and bending behavior, including blast protection and piercing) at room, elevated, or cryogenic temperature, mechanical damping, failure mechanisms and energy absorption of metallic foams, foam-filled structures and their mechanical stability, biocompatible foams, degradable and recyclable metallic foams, joining technologies (brazing, welding, gluing, etc.), forming of metallic foams, notch and hole sensitivity, applications and case studies.

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. 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 2000 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.
