Special Issue Information
Metal matrix composites are developed to meet the increasing demand for lightweight materials with superior mechanical properties in critical industrial sectors, such as automobile and aerospace. In the past decade, attributed to the mature design theories, advanced fabrication methods and characterization techniques, the research and application of metal matrix composites have greatly advanced. The recent development in multi-scale hierarchical and bio-inspired design principles makes strong and tough metal matrix composites possible. The development of nano-materials and advance ceramics provides more reinforcements with specific performance. The continuous progress in characterization techniques reveals the relationships among the microstructure, processing and properties of the metal matrix composites, especially on a nano-scale level, and the sophisticated preparation methods of metal matrix composites bridge the fundamental theory and industrial application.
This Special Issue aims at covering recent progress and new developments in relationships between the microstructure and mechanical/thermo-physical properties of advanced metal matrix composites. All aspects related to the theoretical design, numerical simulation, microstructure characterization, advanced fabrication and strengthening mechanism are covered. Review articles which describe the current state of the art are also welcomed.

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).
