Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit your research to this Special Issue “Advances in tribological and other functional properties of materials”.

The formation of functional properties of materials via various technological methods is and will always remain relevant. The tribological properties of friction pairs are particularly significant and often determine the performance of machine elements. These properties are formed by modifying the surface layers, selecting the material of friction pairs for its adjustment, and solving their lubrication issues. In addition to tribological properties, other properties of materials and elements made from them are undoubtedly significant: strength, stiffness, flexibility, corrosion resistance, and fatigue resistance.

The most important highlights of this publication are materials formed via 3D printing, composite materials from renewable raw materials, environmentally friendly (biodegradable) materials, and other materials with exceptional functional properties. We are very much looking forward to receiving contributions that will assess not only and not so much the influence of the material production technology on the physical and mechanical properties, but also the mechanisms of friction pair material decay (wear) and modeling of the material properties.

In particular, the topics of interest of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Materials formed via 3D printing;
  • Composite materials;
  • Methods of research and modeling of material properties;
  • Biodegradable materials;
  • Green tribology materials.

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.
