Interests: magnesium-lithium alloy and aluminum-magnesium alloy; superplasticity; deformation mechanism; mechanical behavior; microstructure; modelling; severe plastic deformation such as multidirectional forging (MDF), friction stir processing(FSP), and conform-ECAP; thermomechanical processing such as rolling and continuous casting-extrusion; strengthening mechanism
Special Issue Information
Superplasticity (SP) is the exceptional capability of materials including metals and alloys to exhibit high elongation or ductility, typically more than 400% elongation. Quasi-superplasticity usually obtains 200–300% elongation. Superplastic forming can manufacture alloy components with a complex shape on small tonnage equipment. Here, the alloys include aluminum alloys, magnesium alloys, titanium alloys, steel, zinc alloys, superalloys, high-entropy alloys, and so forth. This special issue plans to give an overview of the most recent advances in the field of metallic SP research. It aims to bring forward new ideas and innovation knowledge relevant to SP of metals and alloys, and explore the opportunity of superplastic forming.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Superplastic ductility achieved in a variety of alloys;
- Underlying deformation mechanism of superplasticity and dislocation creep;
- Mechanical behavior and microstructural evolution of various alloys deformed at elevated temperature;
- Modelling of superplasticity and dislocation creep;
- Grain refinement and its evolution mechanism by various approaches of severe plastic deformation and conventional thermomechanical processing;
- Superplastic forming, and so on.

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.
